Sports Injuries Q&A

What causes sports injuries?

Sports injuries can occur for many reasons, including direct impact with equipment or surfaces and indirect forces like torquing, overextension and strain. Most injuries that occur during sports activities involve the musculoskeletal system or nervous system, including soft tissue injuries that involve the muscles, ligaments and tendons, and injuries that can cause compression of the nerves in the spine and elsewhere. Because so many components and structures can involve in a sports injury, a whole-patient, customized approach to care is essential in order to achieve the best possible results.

Can chiropractic care be used as a routine part of care for athletes?

Yes, just as routine chiropractic adjustment can be used to help all types of patients avoid injuries and pain, sports medicine techniques can be used to help athletes perform at their peak while avoiding injuries in the future. Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to treatment that takes the entire patient into account. That means treatment can be custom-tailored for the specific needs and objectives of each patient, including athletes.

How does a chiropractor treat sports injuries?

Chiropractic care is ideally suited to the treatment of sports injuries because it addresses the entire musculoskeletal system by releasing tension, reducing inflammation and promoting circulation for better healing. Plus, chiropractic care includes a broad array of treatment options so it can be customized for the patient and the activity. Depending on the issue being treated, options can include spinal adjustments, therapeutic massage and deep tissue manipulation, cold laser therapy, physical therapy and other techniques. Before any treatment begins, a chiropractor can perform a hands-on evaluation of injuries and symptoms to ensure the most effective technique or a combination of techniques is used. Imaging techniques like x-rays or CT scans may also be ordered as needed to ensure the best approach is implemented for optimal healing and a quick return to physical activity.
