Getting Chiropractic Care For Sport Injuries

Sports Injury Treatment with Your San Jose Chiropractor

Chiropractors treat a wide range of medical issues that affect the spine, back, neck shoulders and knees. Certain body parts tend to be more susceptible to sports injuries, especially for athletes or people who engage in a lot of physical activity. So what is there to know about sports injuries?

Types of Sports Injuries

Because it involves a lot of range in motion, sports can lead to all sorts of injuries. Wear and tear or repetitive overuse are common causes of sports injuries. Injuries can also happen as a result of falls, slips, accidents or a failure to properly warm up. Common types of sports injuries include:

  • Spine misalignment.
  • Disc rupturing.
  • Tendinitis.
  • Tennis Elbow.
  • Muscle strain.
  • Groin pull.
  • ACL knee tear.
  • Kneecap injury, or patellofemoral syndrome.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Back pain, whether sharp or dull.
  • Neck stiffness.
  • Leg pain.
  • Bruising or discoloration.
  • Swelling.
  • Inflammation or burning.
  • Muscle spasms or muscle tenderness.
  • Arm or leg weakness.
  • Restricted movement.

Treatment Options for Sports Injuries

Injuries can be treated through surgical or non-surgical means. Physical therapy, massage therapy, pain relief medication, injections, lifestyle counseling, and non-invasive tooling are just some of the non-surgical options for injury treatment. A surgical procedure will depend on what kind of injury you have and how severe it is; for instance, if you suffer from damaged cartilage in the knee, then the surgery will focus on repairing the tissue of the knee.

Typically, treatment plans are decided based on factors like the needs of the patient, how comfortable the patient is with certain methods and the best course of option that the doctor recommends for the patient.

When to Seek Help for a Sports Injury

At the very least, a sports injury can be frustrating and mildly discomforting. At the very worst, a sports injury can lead to serious mobility restriction or even permanent disability. People who don’t seek treatment for an injury may find their condition worsening over time. That is why it’s important to seek a chiropractor for treatment. Don’t let an injury negatively impact your quality of life.
