Can Chiropractic Care Help With Sports Injuries?

There’s no doubt about it; sports are fun! Playing sports, whether professionally or just for recreation, can be a rewarding experience. It can also, however, bring about unexpected injuries. Especially as we age, our bodies are more prone to injury as our bones and muscles age with us. To avoid injury and treat any injury that may occur, check out these tips for keeping your body healthy and strong.

What Are the Most Common Sports Injuries?

The most common ways that people are injured in sports are sprains and strains, pulled muscles, and joint problems. With the wear and tear that sports put on our bodies, it’s easy to sprain ankles or wrists, or pull a muscles that hasn’t been stretched properly. The quick movements are also hard on the joints, sometimes causing pain, swelling, or stiffness.

How Are The Injuries Most Commonly Treated?

For minor injuries, the most common treatments are over the counter medications, heat, ice, and compression. Similarly, heat and/or ice helps to reduce swelling and promote natural healing in the injured area. Compression is often used when a particular injured area is wrapped or placed in a brace. This both treats and prevents swelling and keeps the injured area from experiencing too much jarring motion.

Can Injuries Be Prevented?

While a random injury can happen at anytime, prevention is possible for some injuries. Proper stretching and a warm-up helps many prevent injuries, especially in the case of pulled muscles. Many other people find both prevention and treatment measures through the help of a chiropractor. Regular chiropractic care has been shown to treat some types of sports injuries and prevent many others.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

A chiropractor helps to keep the spine in its proper alignment. When the spine is properly aligned, it allows the entire body to function better and feel healthier and more limber. This results in less injury, better range of motion, and a faster recovery time.
