Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a pro athlete, any time you’re active, there is a risk of an injury. Sports injuries can easily leave you on the sidelines, and when you don’t get the right kind of care as soon as possible after the injury occurs, you could face having to give up your favorite activities for good.
Don’t try to play through the pain, and don’t rely on medications to mask the symptoms. Instead, treat the injury itself with chiropractic care at First Choice Chiropractic. Athletes of all ages and types rely on chiropractic to get them back in the game after a sports injury, without the need for medications or surgeries.
Here is a closer look at why chiropractic treatment is the right choice when you need relief from a sports injury.
Chiropractic Care 101
Spinal misalignments and structural problems can cause a range of complications for the entire body. When the spine is not in healthy alignment, the vertebrae may irritate the nerves that surround it and run through it, which in turn can trigger a variety of different symptoms.
Chiropractors use gentle spinal manipulation and adjustment techniques that are completely noninvasive to return the spine to a healthy position and ease the pressure on irritated nerves. Frequently, chiropractors integrate other therapies, from nutritional counseling to physiotherapy, to support their spinal adjustments and encourage effective healing.
Chiropractic Care and Sports Injuries
For most athletes, the two most important goals of sports injury treatment are fast results and relief without the risks of medications. Chiropractic treatments deliver on both fronts. Traditional doctors rely on pain medications that may provide relief of symptoms but that do nothing to treat the injury itself. Chiropractic care resolves the injury, so that not only do athletes get relief quickly, but they heal thoroughly, reducing their risk of future injury.
