Whether you partake in sports for fun or as a profession, a setback from an injury is the last thing you want. Whether minor or severe, any injury keeps you from the game you love. However, you don't have to let a sports injury control your life and prevent you from doing the activities you love. Chiropractic care can help naturally alleviate your pain or discomfort from a sports injury and prevent it from returning. At Signature Wellness Center in Fairfield and Belleville, we offer the testing and care our patients need to get back to living a healthy and pain-free life after a sports injury.
Why Seek Treatment for a Sports Injury?
If you have a sports injury, it can be assumed that you just need to "walk it off" or even ignore your injury. Unfortunately, because the injured muscle is now weakened and even torn, not treating a sports injury can lead to permanent mobility and flexibility issues. It can also lead to a permanently weakened muscle, leaving you susceptible to re-injury. It's never a good idea to ignore sports injuries. Some of the most common sports injuries that can affect anyone includes:
- Shin splints
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Muscle tears
- ACL injuries
- Achilles heel injuries
- Broken bones
- Tennis elbow
- Dislocated knees and shoulders
All of these injuries can be incredibly difficult to recover from without professional help. If you notice redness, swelling, or pain after exercise or sports, it's best to reach out to a chiropractor for help.
How a Chiropractor Can Help You
Only a trained chiropractor will be able to determine the full extent of your injury. They will be able to properly diagnose your sports injury and provide the proper chiropractic treatment. This can include:
- Muscle massages to improve circulation and reduce tension and pain
- Muscle stretches to improve flexibility and mobility
- Muscle-strengthening exercises to strengthen the muscle and reduce chances of re-injury
- Acupuncture to target specific areas of pain and help the body heal faster
- Kinesiology Taping to provide support to injured muscles and joints
- Manual adjustments to help re-align the spine
- Spinal decompression to treat herniated discs resulting from wear-and-tear
