Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
Athletes place a lot of demands on their bodies due to the extensive running, jumping, throwing, tackling and other actions required by their sport. At Lakeshore Chiropractic in Sarasota, FL, we offer natural sports injury treatments through chiropractic care. Whether you’re suffering from sprains and strains, torn ligaments, a dislocated shoulder, or spinal misalignments, your Sarasota chiropractor can help with pain relief and put you on the road to recovery.
Symptoms of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries vary depending on the sport you play. Contact sports such as football and hockey can lead to injuries such as dislocated shoulders, neck, shoulder, and back pain, and spinal misalignments. In contrast, runners are more prone to runner’s knee, pulled hamstrings, and shin splints. Muscle strains, joint sprains, soft tissue injuries, whiplash, and knee injuries are also quite common among sports players.
Sports injuries can cause symptoms such as swelling joints and muscles, burning pain, headaches, stiffness, soreness, inflammation, muscle spasms, and restricted mobility. You may have to stop playing for some time and may even find it difficult to fulfill home or work obligations due to your injury.
Chiropractic Care for Sports Injury
Working with a qualified chiropractor in Sarasota can help expedite your recovery from sports injuries. At Lakeshore Chiropractic, we’ll treat both your pain and the source of your pain to help you fully recover from your injury.
As many neck, shoulder, and back injuries deal with spinal issues, spinal adjustments are used in many of our treatments. Spinal adjustments are used to correct misalignments in your spine to relieve pain and discomfort and restore range of motion. Adjustments relieve muscle tension and take pressure off of spinal nerves that are causing pain and restricting your movements. Once your system is back in balance, your body can start to heal.
In addition to spinal adjustments, we’ll integrate natural therapies like massage, hot and cold treatments, and rehab exercises into your treatment plan to expedite your healing. The combination of these therapies enables you to get the most from your chiropractic care treatment.
Prevention of Injuries
In addition to sports injury treatment, chiropractic care can be used to prevent painful injuries by maintaining your body in balance and strengthening muscles and joints to make them less susceptible to injury. We’ll teach you exercises you can do at home to strengthen your body and improve your overall health and fitness to avoid future injuries.
