Causes and Symptoms of Sports Injuries
When playing a sport, it is important to know the rules of the game and wear protective gear in order to prevent severe injuries. However, that is not always the case. No matter how much we might protect ourselves, injuries can still happen. These can include:
• Neck and back pain
• Shin splints
• Pulled or strained muscles
• Tennis elbow
• Runner’s knee
Symptoms can be acute or chronic, depending how badly injured you are. You may experience the following:
• Tenderness or stiffness in the joints
• Soft tissue swelling
• Weakness in the muscles or tendons
• Nerve irritation that can radiate to certain parts of the body
Chiropractic Care and Rehabilitation
Restoring spinal alignment takes care of aches and pains all over your body. By correcting a misalignment, which tends to be the source of most problems, symptoms can ease. Chiropractic care and rehabilitation exercises work together when treating your pain because they both help improve mobility and muscle strength, speeds up the natural healing process, and decrease the risk of re-injury.
Sports Injury Treatment with Physiotherapy
While chiropractic care and rehabilitation exercises are great in their own way, many physiotherapy techniques can also strengthen the injured soft tissues. Our chiropractors may suggest ultrasound, heat or ice therapy, cold laser therapy, or acupuncture in your treatment plan. Ultrasound improves the healing process by increasing blood circulation and removing toxins from the injured tissues. Heat and cold therapy reduces any inflammation you might have, and cold laser therapy uses light wavelengths to penetrate through the skin to reduce the swelling and pain. Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that can restore balance to your Qi, or life force energy. Mobility and function can be restored with this technique.
