Sports injuries can be debilitating and prevent you from participating in the activity you love. Luckily, chiropractic care can help. Smith Wellness can provide diagnosis, treatment, and preventative care for sports injuries. We are able to alleviate your pain and help you get back to playing the sport you love.
Here are some commonly asked questions about sports injuries.
What Are Some Common Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries can be caused by repetitive movements, causing conditions such as a stress fracture, or a sudden traumatic injury, such as an ankle sprain or hamstring tear. There are also other types of sports injuries, such as a hernia, joint dislocation, muscle soreness, and more. The type of injury depends on the sport you play and its intensity. Common symptoms of sports injuries include knee pain, back pain, sore muscles, stiffness, and pain in joints, decreased range of motion, and more.
What Are Chiropractic Methods Used for Sports Injuries?
Our chiropractic team is highly experienced in treating all types of sports injuries. The type of chiropractic treatment will vary depending on the type of injury. For example, if the injury has caused the joints or spine to get misaligned, we can perform a manual adjustment of the spine. Our chiropractor also offers spinal decompression to help with herniated discs or other back pain. We may also provide corrective exercises to strengthen your body as it heals.
How Many Chiropractic Sessions Are Needed to Treat a Sports Injury?
The number of sessions or time required will depend on your sports injury and how the injury responds to chiropractic treatment. In the initial assessment of your injury, our chiropractor can guide you on a more specific time frame or the number of sessions expected for your treatment.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe to Treat Sports Injuries?
Chiropractic care is extremely safe, as it does not use any invasive procedures or rely on medications to treat sports injuries. If you are considering surgery or other invasive procedures, you should consider having a consultation with our chiropractor at The Healing Touch Chiropractic. Our treatment methods are non-invasive and drug-free, so you do not need to rely on pain medications, either. Chiropractic care provides a long-term solution for sports injuries.
