A sports injury is any injury that happens during a sport or leisure activity. Here’s a closer look at some of the most common types of sports injuries.
Back pain often results from using incorrect form or technique. Big body movements and jarring landings are common in any sports that demand jumping, sharp turns, and sprint starts. But doing them wrong can get you hurt, which is why coaches stress using proper form in your sport.
Your knees can easily tear, twist, or bend in a direction they shouldn’t. They also absorb the impact of running, jumping, and landing, putting tremendous stress on them that can lead to an injury.
You can twist an ankle while doing anything if you misstep or land improperly.
Broken bones frequently happen in sports. A mistimed tackle, a landing gone wrong, or a fall can result in weeks of rehabilitation.
If you’ve suffered a sports injury, PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy can provide tailored patient plans to meet your needs.
Chiropractic care for sports injuries falls into three categories: acute care, ongoing care, and new care for old injuries.
Acute care is for a recent and specific injury. Usually, you can pinpoint exactly when the injury happened and how. You’re usually ready to seek medical help immediately afterward before the damage gets worse.
Ongoing care, or maintenance, is following a regular program of treatment designed to keep you in top condition. Every week or so, you receive spinal adjustments and a recommended course of stretches and exercise from your chiropractor.
This type of care treats injuries that didn’t receive proper treatment and now flare-up months, even years later. In the short-term, your doctor focuses on providing pain relief. Long-term, they work to find the problem’s root cause and treat it.
No matter how you've been injured, the team at PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy works with you to ease the symptoms and treat the problem.
With proper care and attention, you can prevent sports injuries from happening. Always wear protective gear, always warm up and cool down, and remember to drink lots of fluids.
