Sports Injury Prevention
Many sports injuries can be prevented when an athlete fully understands the dynamic relationship between their bones, muscles and nerves, and other related anatomy. Musculoskeletal adjustments from a chiropractor are recommended to athletes for injury prevention while exercising. Spinal alignment is beneficial to increase flexibility and to optimize the range of motion for the athlete. Working with a chiropractor as a sports therapist for injury prevention is an advisable approach to minimize the potential for injury.
Athleticism comes with the risk of injury. Sprains and strains are the most common injuries suffered by athletes. Overuse and repetitive motion, sudden stretching of muscles, sudden twisting or pivoting and sudden stopping during an activity can jolt the body into a tumultuous cycle of injury that may lead to an acute stage of pain or worse, to long-term chronic pain. Different levels of pain and injury will lead to several stages of rehabilitation that a chiropractor can help you with. Chiropractic medicine can treat sports injuries ranging from shoulder and neck injuries, back, wrist, hand and elbow injuries, and hip, knee, foot, and ankle pain.
Stages of Rehabilitation
The first stage of sports injury is, of course, prevention. However, if you suffer from an acute injury you will need medical attention. Acute pain should be addressed by an emergency physician. Following emergency treatment, a consultation with a chiropractic sports rehabilitation therapist will help with your recovery and rehabilitation.
Spinal adjustments and alignment will help your body recover from any level of sports injury. Post-injury health with chiropractic care is vital to maintain musculoskeletal health. Massage therapy can increase strength, mobility and flexibility by improving the circulation of oxygen and nutrients through the bloodstream to necessary organs and tissues in the body.
