Sports Injuries Q&A

What injuries do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors can care for patients with various medical conditions and injuries, bringing much-needed relief. These include:

Sports injuries

Professional athletes and frequent sports players can be less likely to get injured than those who occasionally participate, although injuries can happen. Sports-related injuries can result in various adverse effects, ranging from discomfort and pain to swelling, restricted movement, and the inability to perform daily activities.

Some of the most common sports injuries treated by chiropractors include sprains and strains, golfer’s elbow, groin strain, pull in the calf and hamstring muscles, lower back discomfort, neck ache, shoulder pain, rotator cuff injuries, thigh injuries, shin splints, and problems with the Achilles tendon.

Car accidents

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for chronic and acute back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, whiplash, and others common to car accident injuries. Treatments are generally safe, natural, noninvasive, and fantastic for reducing pain and restoring range of motion.

Underlying conditions

In other cases, injury is caused by an underlying condition, such as spine or joint problems like arthritis. These usually develop gradually and are asymptomatic until the underlying issue causes something apparent to appear.

Chiropractic treatment can also be administered for a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, such as joint pain, knee pain, tech neck, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle spasms, headaches, migraines, and even stress.

What are some treatments for sports injuries?

Whether recovering from sports injuries, another type of injury like a fall or car accident, or those stemming from underlying conditions, chiropractic treatment from a skilled professional like your provider at Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center can help you heal faster.

How long does physical rehabilitation for sports injuries take?
