Both adults and children can fall victim to sports injuries. When an injury occurs, its impact can be devastating. Not only can a sports injury cause acute and chronic pain, but recovering from an injury can take weeks or even months to fully heal. This lost time on the field can seriously impede a person's ability to have fun and stay healthy through sports and exercise.
To help you heal properly, it's best to get help from a professional sports rehab to aid in the recovery process. At Signature Wellness Center, our chiropractors and physical therapists can help you recover quickly from sports injuries. Our professional health care is available to patients at our Fairfield and Bellville locations.
Do I Have a Sports Injury?
Around 3.5 million children are injured due to sports every year. If you notice you or your child feel immediate pain following activity, such as kicking a ball, running, falling, and so on, this could indicate you have a sports injury that needs treatment. Common sports injuries to look out for include:
- ACL injuries
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Achilles heel injuries
- Torn muscles
- Broken bones
- Shin splints
- Muscle soreness and inflammation
- Tennis elbow
All of these sports injuries can cause someone to feel acute and even chronic pain. Although some people might be able to recover from a sports injury by resting, icing, and elevating their injury, other more serious injuries will need sports rehabilitation to recover from.
How Sports Rehabilitation Works
When a muscle is injured, it loses strength, mobility, and flexibility. Unfortunately, this puts someone at risk of re-injury. Our chiropractors will determine the extent of a sports injury and conduct various tests to create a personalized treatment plan. Not only will these treatments help restore mobility and strength in the muscle, but they will also help provide pain relief.
These treatments include:
- Massage therapy
- Muscle stretches
- Muscle strengthening exercises
- Spinal decompression
- Trigger point therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- Manual and spinal adjustments
Our team will use a combination of these treatments in addition to providing at-home exercises to help you speed up your natural recovery process.
