Sports injuries can happen any time. You can help prevent them with chiropractic. How? A chiropractor evaluates the body as a whole instead of separate parts. This allows to address the true cause of the injury. Sports injuries can be caused by:
- structural misalignment
- lack of flexibility
- faulty biomechanics
- muscular imbalances
What are common sports injuries?
- Ankle sprain. Ankles suffer the most in sports such as football, basketball and soccer. If your ankle, knee or back is not in proper alignment- you will be more prone to ankle sprains.
- Hyperextended knee. Knees suffer the most in sports such as basketball, volleyball and gymnastics. If the muscles surrounding the knees are imbalanced in strength, this injury is more likely to happen. Physical therapy can make sure the muscles surrounding the knee are in the right tone and strength.
- Straining the hip flexor. Sprinting and cycling really work the hip flexors. Lack of flexibility and weakness in the muscles surrounding the hip flexors generally cause the hip flexors to be strained.
- Tendonitis in the rotator cuff. Swimming, tennis and baseball cause this sports injury most frequently. The constant motion of using the arm overhead causes the irritation and inflammation of tendons surrounding the shoulder. Physical therapy addressing the instability of muscles and upper back can help treat this.
- Concussion. High impact sports like football, hockey and soccer most frequently cause concussions. Since the body usually has to sustain a pretty good impact to cause a concussion, whiplash might be a resulting injury. Correct chiropractic attention to whiplash can keep it from worsening or being chronic.
