Sports Injuries

Sports injuries occur when an athlete’s participation in a specific sport causes an injury or an underlying condition. Common sports injuries include sprains and strains, knee injuries, shoulder injuries, sciatica and/or piriformis syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, and bone fractures. Chiropractic care can also help prevent injuries or aggravated conditions. Athletes can benefit from chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments and manual manipulations can help treat sports injuries from high-impact sports i.e. wrestling, football, and hockey. Athletes that receive routine chiropractic care may notice improved athletic performance as well as improved range of motion, flexibility, and strength with increased blood flow. Because chiropractic care can reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, such as with sciatica, the healing time can be shortened. Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments and manual manipulations are a natural way to treat different injuries and underlying conditions that impact athletes. According to Dr. Jimenez, excessive training and improper gear, among other factors, are common causes for sports injuries. Dr. Jimenez summarizes the various causes and effects of sports injuries on the athlete as well as explaining the types of treatments and rehabilitation methods that can help improve an athlete’s condition.
