From spraining an ankle during track and field to suffering from a concussion or head injury in football, sports injuries are practically inevitable. Although many people can recover from a sports injury with little intervention, it's essential to seek professional care regardless of the severity of your injury. Some minor sports injuries can cause serious problems later in life if not properly treated early on.
At Living Well Chiropractic, our chiropractor, Dr. Campbell, and our professional staff are dedicated to helping our patients find natural relief from their sports injuries. Visit our chiropractic clinic in Gilbert to see how we can help you with your recovery.
Types of Common Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can occur during both team sports and individual activities. Some common types of sports injuries we often treat at our clinic include:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- ACL tears
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Bone fractures
- Shin splints
- Achilles heel injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Muscle tears
- Tennis elbow
- Dislocated joints
- Sore muscles
All of these injuries can easily cause chronic pain and other health-related issues. Living with these injuries and not getting the proper treatment can also lead to re-injury. This is why it's crucial to get help from our chiropractor as soon as you can, since re-injury can make it even more challenging to fully heal.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Our chiropractor will determine the root cause of your pain, as well as determine the extent of your sports injury. We will be able to conduct a physical exam, imaging tests, and take down your medical history before prescribing the right chiropractic treatment plan. Chiropractic treatment options for sports injuries often include:
- Trigger point therapy
- Stretching and strengthening exercises
- Spinal decompression
- Lifestyle advice
- Manual and spinal adjustments
- And more!
These treatments will be combined into one program to help encourage blood flow and circulation in injured muscles, promote natural healing, and reduce muscle inflammation. Our chiropractor will also focus on rebuilding and re-strengthening injured muscles to ensure the chances of re-injury are lessened.
