Types of Sports Injuries

Athletes can end up with all types of injuries due to the physical nature of sports. Contact sports, such as football, can lead to damage from colliding with other players. Other sports, such as tennis, involve lots of twisting and turning that can result in an injury. Some of the most common types of sports-related injuries include:

  • Neck pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Lower back pain
  • Strained hamstring 
  • Runner’s knee

Recognizing the Symptoms

Most sports injuries lead to pain in the injured area. You might not be able to put weight on the affected joint or you may not be able to move it at all. Some additional symptoms of sports injuries include the following:

  • Stiffness in the injured joint
  • Swelling
  • Pain that radius to other parts of the body
  • Pain that worsens in certain positions or with movement

When to Seek Professional Help

Minor injuries may be able to heal on their own, however, if you have pain that’s lingering or preventing you from being active, it’s important to seek treatment. Our chiropractor can perform a thorough evaluation and recommend the necessary treatment.

Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries can cause misalignments in your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves and result in pain. We can utilize chiropractic adjustments to correct these misalignments and offer relief. Along with that, we may suggest therapeutic ultrasound, which helps reduce any inflammation and swelling. Our sports chiropractor can also teach you specific exercises that you can do at home to strengthen your muscles. With regular appointments, you should see an improvement in your mobility and athletic performance.
