SPORTS INJURIES

Whether you are an amateur sports enthusiast or a professional athlete, sitting on the side line with an injury can be emotionally and physically draining. A sudden sprain or ongoing strain can make your goals seem that much harder to achieve.

Often, patients turn to chiropractic care to relieve symptoms of discomfort when it has occurred through sports. Applying cold compresses and using medication only provide temporary relief for pain and inflammation. Chiropractic care may help speed up the recovery process and get you back to your competitive best sooner.

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF SPORTS INJURIES

  • Sudden or shooting pains
  • Dull or burning pains
  • Headaches
  • Swelling and discomfort
  • Inability to place weight on legs or feet

COMMON SPORTS INJURIES

When people talk about a sports injury, they often think about sudden trauma. But sports injuries can also occur from underlying problems and develop over time.

Common sports injuries that are seen in chiropractic care include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Hamstring and calf strains
  • Groin strains
  • Thigh sprains
  • Tennis or golfers’ elbow
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Hip pain
  • Joint pain

All of these injuries can affect your quality of life and prevent you from playing sport at the best of your ability. Yet, they are sports injuries that could be supported with a holistic approach such as chiropractic care. It does not have to involve taking pain medication with side effects or permanently giving up your favourite sports and active pursuits.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPORTS INJURIES

Chiropractor care has been used for a long time to support sports-related injuries.

Chiropractic care is not only for inflammation and pain. It is also used as a tool by athletes and sporting professionals to increase performance and mobility. It can be more than just restoring normal function after an injury. Chiropractic care may help improve sports performance in the long term.

Chiropractic care involves attending an initial consultation to assess the injury and discuss the best course of action. Dr Adam understands that everyone has unique health concerns and will respond differently to each individual. All care plans are created with a personalised approach designed to meet the needs of the individual.

Education and support is often helpful after chiropractic appointments to ensure your lifestyle does not further affect your injury. This includes guidance on exercises you can practice outside of the clinic, nutrition tips for long-term health and injury prevention strategies for the future.
