Activity is great for the body. But the more physically demanding the activity you choose, the higher the risk of an accident leading to injury. Chiropractic care offers several treatment options for issues that lead to head, neck, and back pain. Our wellness partners can also teach posture, stretches, and exercises to help prevent these pains. The doctors of Chirolife Wellness Center, of Mooresville, NC, would like to offer some insight as to how our office can help you with your sports injury.
Certain postures, stretches, or exercises can reduce the risk of injuries from happening. Our team can coach you in the most reliable techniques to prevent or minimize the different pains that may be common with your sport of choice.
Sports Injury Treatments
Sometimes, injuries still happen. Chiropractors study the musculoskeletal system, which helps them fully understand the moving components of the body. Our wellness partners can use physiotherapy to treat the injured area and improve the function to be as close to the pre-sports injury condition as possible.
By massaging the injured area, circulation and blood flow are improved and tension can be eased in the muscle. Improved circulation helps the injured area to recover by ensuring vital oxygen, hydration, and more are delivered to the areas that need it most. Massage therapy can also reduce headaches, even if the head is not directly massaged.
The vertebrae are optimized to stack neatly upon one another. It does not take much to knock these out of alignment. When this happens, it can result in weight distribution becoming imbalanced and/or the pinching of nerves and discs. Certain back muscles will have to work harder than others to compensate for any load imbalances. Pinched nerves can lead to impaired organ function as signals become blocked. A spinal adjustment is a process of manually placing the vertebrae back into place, relieving the imbalanced loads or pinching between vertebrae.
Chiropractors are an excellent place to turn when you have a sports injury. The specialization, variety of treatment options, and resources that their wellness partners have available make them excellent caregivers to help return the body to its best level.
