As an athlete, you are intimately familiar with the strenuous demands- like jumping, running, and tackling- that come with playing a sport. Repeatedly putting your body through such activities can result in painful sprains, tears, and strains. Whether you’re currently suffering a sports injury or proactively seeking to prevent future injuries, seeing a chiropractor can be extremely helpful. Chiropractors are professionals who can treat and help prevent back, neck, knee, shoulder, and ankle injuries. Chiropractors are highly skilled in manually adjusting the spine to ensure bones are balanced and aligned appropriately, relieving tension in the body, a process that allows the body to better function and become less prone to injury.
How Chiropractors Help Athletic Injuries
Most chiropractic techniques aim to enhance or restore joint function while reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation. This highly hands-on therapy is typically used to treat back or neck injuries, but also helps relieve pain throughout the muscles and joints. Athletes suffer sports injuries mainly due to repetitive motions, forceful impacts, failure to warm up properly, and over-training. Chiropractors help athletes relieve their pain and heal faster following an injury. Regular sessions promote better balance and overall performance along with quicker recovery after training and games. To begin, a chiropractor will ask you about your health and structurally examine your spine, posture, and balance. They will also examine your back, tendons, joints, and ligaments. Your doctor can use this information to determine optimal treatment options. The two most common techniques include spinal mobilization and spinal manipulation.
Chiropractors may also utilize treatment methods other than spinal mobilization and manipulation like heat, ice, or electric stimulation. Discuss all your symptoms with your doctor so that they can determine the best course of treatment for your injury. Chiropractors also help prevent injuries from occurring by evaluating your body to detect any imbalances and alleviating tension in your muscles and spine to maximize the body’s potential to work naturally rather than be prone to injury. All chiropractors are trained to relieve pain from tension, but there are certain chiropractors who specialize in sports medicine. If you suffer from chronic sports injuries and advanced pain, you may want to consider a chiropractor who specifically focuses on sports medicine with extensive experience in treating athletes and pinpointing the cause of injury. A chiropractor who specializes in sports medicine may also know different techniques for athletes to balance their bodies and heal from injuries, along with tips for avoiding reinjury.
