Common Sports Injuries Can Be Treated with Chiropractic Care

Strains and sprains are common sports injuries which tend to happen during sports that involve repetitive stress or overuse of muscles. An example of repetitive stress injuries that strain your muscles is tennis elbow. This injury can be treated by using techniques such as physical therapy or corrective exercises and massage to relax and loosen the muscles and tissues that are affected by the injury.

Tendonitis is a familiar injury that many athletes develop. Tendons connect your muscles to your bones and ensure movement of your body. When tendons become inflamed it causes pain because of the pull on the muscle; this is where tendonitis forms. Tendonitis can cause back pain, neck pain or knee pain. Chiropractic care methods can help alleviate pain caused by this sports injury and assist in healing your tendonitis. By using corrective exercises, ice therapy and massage our chiropractor will isolate the injury and work to heal it as quickly and possible so that you can "get back in the game."

Plantar fasciitis is another frequent sports-related injury. This condition occurs when the area of tissue running from the heel of your foot along the arch becomes inflamed. The injury can produce extreme pain and you may not even start to feel the discomfort until it is too late. Chiropractic care in combination with taping and massage will help relieve pain and promote recovery as well as discourage reoccurrence of this sports injury.
