Sports Injuries

September 24, 2020

Sports are a great way to stay fit and healthy but can also cause some common injuries. At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we’re prepared to help you not only relieve any pain from an injury but also prevent one!

Staying in shape can take a toll on your body—from sprains and broken bones to pulled muscles and soreness. Most activities put a lot of pressure on your knees, neck, back, shoulder, and ankles. Seeing a chiropractor can help prevent injury to these areas in particular

Whether to prevent an injury or help you heal from one, seeking attention from a chiropractor is a good way to stay fit as part of a holistic approach to your health. The goal is to reduce pain and inflammation, improve your range of motion and flexibility, and strengthen your muscles.

Why Are Athletes Prone to Injury?

Sports often involve forceful impact on your joints and body along with repetitive motions that can result in sore muscles and wear and tear. Many times athletes fail to warm up properly, which can also increase the likelihood of common injuries.

All of our chiropractors are specially trained in the treatment and diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders and manual adjustment techniques. These techniques involve a varied approach, depending on your specific needs, including:

  • Cold therapy
  • Hot therapy
  • Customized exercise and stretching regimens
  • Nutrition
  • Massage
  • Cervical manipulation
  • Electric stimulation

For sports injuries, your chiropractor will likely want to see you on a regular basis to provide the best outcomes. All care is safe and non-invasive, and incorporates your overall wellbeing. The approach is based on the premise that your body is interconnected so that correcting any misalignment in the spine can help reduce inflammation and improve nervous system function. This, in turn, can help to manage pain in the affected area and prevent re-injury.

If you’re thinking about starting a new sport, or need help recovering from a sports injury, we’re ready to help you feel good and reach your fitness goals.

At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
