SPORTS INJURY TREATMENT AT DAVIDSON CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC
Playing sports can be a great way to have fun and exercise at the same time. However, all sports do present some type of risk. Luckily, our chiropractor can get you back on the field sooner by helping you recover faster. We have helped many recover from sports injuries here at Davidson Chiropractic Clinic at our Rock Springs and Evanston locations.
Types of Sports Injuries Chiropractors Treat
Sprains and Strains
Patients often experience sprains due to overstretching during warmup or torn ligaments. Ruptured tendons and muscles can lead to serious strains. Our chiropractor will work with you to reduce the pain or discomfort due to sprains or strains.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries can result in damage to a tendon, ligament, or skin. These types of injuries are due to overuse from physical activity, such as sports, or from an external force that causes an injury.
We also commonly see shoulder injuries due to playing sports. The most common type of shoulder injury is a rotator cuff tear. The shoulder is easily damaged when performing repetitive or strenuous activities, making it a common injury for people who actively engage in sports.
Runner's knee is commonly seen in people who play sports and is also an injury that we commonly treat at our chiropractic office. An injury to the hip, knee, or even the ankle can change the biomechanics within the knee resulting in symptoms of runner's knee.
Chiropractic Techniques Used to Treat Sports Injuries
Our chiropractor can treat and help prevent back, shoulder, knee, neck, and ankle injuries by performing various noninvasive techniques. We typically use spinal adjustments to realign the musculoskeletal system, helping to improve the body's functionality and decrease the potential risk of future injuries.
Spinal manipulation is also used to treat sports injuries. This technique reduces pressure within the joints and aligns both the joints and muscles to work properly. Spinal mobilization is used to treat sports injuries for patients who can benefit from a more gentle approach. It involves light stretches that help to relieve pressure on the joints.
