The two types of sport-related injuries that our Chiropractors treat are acute and chronic.
Serious injuries are sometimes the result of continuous wear and tear that’s applied to the muscles, tendons, and joints you most use when exercising.
Chronic injuries are easier to identify than acute because they are often more severe and can be extremely painful.
Our team of fully-accredited Chiropractors addresses the underlying causes of sports injuries by providing holistic solutions that evaluate and treat your body as one, whole unit.
This type of approach often yields the best possible results for rebuilding your strength and relieving you of any pain.
Common Causes of Sports Injuries
Some of the most common reasons patients visit our office when suffering from sports related injury are:
- Limited flexibility
- Structural Misalignments
- Sensitive biomechanics
- Muscular imbalances.
Most Common Winter Sports Injuries
Of the hundreds of patients who suffer from some sports related injury, here are the most common conditions our doctors treat:
This kind of damage takes place when your knee is forced backward, while already set in some forward motion. This imbalance can force your knee to extend far beyond its normal range of the movement or limitations.
Athletes and patients who participate in indoor volleyball, basketball, and gymnastics are more susceptible to hyperextended knee injuries.
If you have experienced this type of condition, then meeting with one of our Chiropractors can help improve your balance and restore muscle strength to prevent further damage.
Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments within your ankle tear and stretch beyond their usual limitations. People who play indoor soccer, basketball and racquetball have a higher chance of experiencing this type of sprain.
This severe injury is the result of your brain moving within your skull at a violent, rapid rate. Ice hockey and other contact sports carry extremely high statistics around the development of concussions. If experienced, you should take the situation very seriously, as the consequences of not receiving immediate treatment include severe headaches, limited consciousness, and even death.
Hip Flexor Strain
These strains are the result of when your hip flexor muscles are stretched too far or become torn.
Indoor soccer players, indoor track and field participants, and bicyclists are all vulnerable to damaging/straining their hip flexor.
The chances of this condition developing increase for those who are already limited in their flexibility or have a weak core (back, abs, pectorals, shoulders).
