A Chiropractic Approach To Sports Injury

As men and women are getting involved with recreational and professional sports such as running, basketball, weight lifting, bike riding, etc., they probably suffer from sports related injury at some point of their life. Even participating in aerobic activities such as running, aerobics, etc. can make you suffer from injuries. When you face similar challenges, popping a pain killer or rubbing a pain relief balm is not a total solution. It can alleviate the pain for some time but because the pain is not totally cured, the pain reoccurs.

Chiropractic treatment provides a balanced approach to the treatment and healing of sports injuries. The chiropractors begin treatment in much the same manner as any doctor. First, the patient is examined and evaluated in order to determine specific injuries, such as muscles, ligaments, range of motion, nerve injury, etc. After the initial evaluation, the chiropractor will explain their findings, discuss their treatment plan, and provide them with proper treatment.

Adjustments return joints to their normal position by using manual treatment to help the supportive tissues. Chiropractors help the injured areas to work normally. Therapy involves manual treatment  and is drug free and non-surgical. With proper rest to support the healing process, patients can find their way back to the full activity in many cases. Exercise and stretching techniques are taught to patients to help stay healthy and fit.
