Can A Chiropractor Help With A Sports Injury?

What a summer of sport we’ve had so far. For many sitting it out and watching is enough but for many participating in a sporting activity is a way of life. However, there are not too many people who participate in sports who have not at some time suffer an injury.¬† It doesn’t matter if it is a contact sport like rugby or a non contact sport like tennis, injuries occur regardless of whether you are weekend warrior or a professional.

However, sports injuries don’t need to hold you back or stop you in your tracks. Most injuries with the right treatment and rehabilitation can be overcome. Seeking treatment in a timely manner can help you get back in action sooner, in most cases.

Chiropractors are trained to assess, diagnose, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, and muscles). Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.

Our chiropractors at City Chiropractic in Stoke on Trent treat patients suffering from sports injuries. When you visit our clinic, one of our chiropractors will carry out a full examination and ask questions about your sporting life, posture, medical history and lifestyle, to discover the cause of your pain and make a diagnosis. If chiropractic treatment is appropriate, your treatment will begin. Treatment will normally be followed by a rehabilitation plan which may help to strengthen the affected area, improve your flexibility and assist in preventing future flare-ups.
