If you are an athlete or someone who likes being active, you can significantly benefit from chiropractic care from Holistic Health Clinic, serving Beaverton and the surrounding areas. Chiropractic care not only treats your sports injuries but strengthens your muscles to prevent future injuries.
Why Do Sports Injuries Occur?
During sports, your body usually undergoes immense pressure. Besides overexertion, sports injuries may also occur due to impact with other players, inadequate warm-up, or wearing the wrong sports gear.
Common Sports Injuries
We treat a wide range of sports injuries at our clinic. The most common sports injuries treated by our chiropractors include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Runner’s knee
- Tennis’ elbow
- Shin splints
- Shoulder injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Achilles tendon rupture
How We Treat Sports Injuries
When you have a sports injury, don’t attempt to “play through it” because it will worsen the injury, making it hard to treat. Instead, book an appointment with our chiropractors for effective treatment.
Before creating a treatment plan, the first step is to diagnose your sports injury. This process involves taking your medical history and examining you physically. If necessary, x-ray images and other diagnostic imaging may help pinpoint the exact location of the injury. After a proper diagnosis, we may use one or a combination of treatments:
- Spinal adjustments: Due to high impact, it’s not uncommon for your body to move out of alignment. Chiropractic adjustments align your spinal joints and muscles to reduce pain and improve mobility.
- Massage therapy: While massage therapy relaxes tense muscles, it increases blood circulation to the injured muscles, promoting faster healing.
- Stretching exercises: Chiropractic exercises targeting the injured part improve mobility and reduce pain.
The advantage of chiropractic treatment is that it doesn’t mask your pain with medications. Instead, our chiropractors pinpoint the exact cause of the pain to devise a treatment that solves your injury once and for all. Chiropractic care also does not use invasive procedures, meaning you can get back to the field sooner because you don’t have to undergo any post-surgery recovery.
How to Prevent Sports Injuries
While sports injuries are common, there are steps you can take to reduce severity and frequency. For example, warming up before intense exercise reduces muscle pulls and aches. Plus, wearing the right sports gear and listening to your body can go a long way in preventing sports injuries.
