About Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can affect just about any part of the spinal, neurological and skeletal systems. An all-inclusive chiropractic examination can pinpoint the location and nature of the injury sustained and your chiropractor can then recommend a course of corrective treatment.
Apart from injuries sustained during a specific trauma, the constant strain on the body during physically demanding sports can take its toll. Minor injuries, strains or niggles which if not treated in time, can lead to major injury and loss of training time and or missing events. This is one of the reasons many athletes regularly undergo preemptive chiropractic care.
The chiropractic approach to treating sports injuries, or even those sustained at home, comprises of a blend of hands on techniques and exercises. The treatment may include a chiropractic adjustment, or a series of adjustments, that are focused on improving flexibility and returning natural movement to the injured joints. Active Release Technique is often used for soft tissue lesions and home exercises are recommended in tandem with chiropractic, to enhance strength and flexibility in muscles, ligaments, tendons and other supportive tissues.
