What Is Sports Injury Chiropractic Care?
If you’re an athlete, the numerous demands of participating in sports such as football, basketball, track and field, baseball and other activities can put significant strain on your body’s musculoskeletal systems. These activities can result in painful muscle tears, sprains, and strains. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain and injuries or help prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.
Our experienced sports chiropractors at Dominguez Injury Centers treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees, and ankles. We specialize in adjustments of the spine, ensuring proper alignment while relieving tension in the body. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
Our chiropractic techniques can also restore or enhance joint function while resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Our hands-on therapy is often used to treat neck or back injuries while relieving joint and muscle pain throughout the body.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help with Sports Injuries?
Forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training, and failure to warm up properly are all potential reasons an athlete may suffer a sports injury. Our chiropractors can provide preventative adjustments and guidance to help prevent those types of injuries from occurring. They can also help athletes by relieving their pain and accelerating the healing process after an injury. Regular visits to an Atlanta chiropractor will promote quicker recovery after games and training as well as better balance and overall performance.
To begin, our chiropractors will ask you questions about your health and perform a structural exam of your posture, spine, and balance. We will also examine your back, extremities, tendons, ligaments, and joints. We can use our findings to map out a treatment plan, which may include techniques like spinal manipulation or spinal mobilization, to maximize your athletic performance.
