Whether you’re training for a 5K or shooting hoops with friends, it’s easy to overdo it while playing sports. From neck pain to tennis elbow, a sports injury can lead to chronic pain that prevents you from enjoying an active lifestyle. If you are struggling to heal following an athletic injury, don’t delay seeking treatment. Without proper rehabilitation care, your body will be at risk for pain and future injury.
Not sure if chiropractic care can help you? Here’s how our chiropractor can help three common sports injuries heal.
Natural Relief for Sports Injury Pain
Tennis elbow: Also known as golf elbow, tennis elbow is a repetitive motion injury occurs when the tendons in the elbow become inflamed. This injury develops slowly over time due to improper movement while swinging a tennis racket or golf club. An underlying misalignment may be triggering this improper movement. Adjustments help restore proper alignment and correct motion. Physical therapy and kinesio taping can also help reduce swelling in the tendons and promote healing.
Knee pain: Athletes who participate in sports that involve a lot of running or jumping frequently struggle with knee pain. If knee ligaments become torn from repetitive motions, swelling and knee pain occurs. Our treatments focus on helping the injured tissue heal, which restores movement and motion to the knee. Our integrated approach combines adjustments with physical therapy treatments for maximum pain relief.
Shoulder pain: Many of our patients suffer from neck, back and shoulder pain. A herniated or misaligned disc in the lower back can cause this pain. An undiagnosed misalignment in the musculoskeletal system is a contributing factor for shoulder pain. Our chiropractor Dr. Schneider and his colleague Dr. Jahdai-Brown perform a diagnostic exam to determine the precise underlying cause for pain. Once this cause is identified, our chiropractors use spinal adjustments to help restore correct alignment. Restoring alignment relieves pressure on the nerves, which decreases pain.
