Back pain is one of the most common medical complications, affecting 8 out of 10 individuals at some point during their lives. Many people report feeling back pain symptoms after a poor night’s rest, a common occurrence where the pain and discomfort generally resolves on its own. But, when the symptoms continue over a longer period of time, it may be best to properly diagnose the cause of the individual’s back pain, especially if you are an athlete. Finding back pain relief after a sports injury may at times seem frustrating, however, with proper treatment by a qualified sports fitness chiropractor time off training can be restored quickly.

Back Pain in Athletes

Athletes are at a higher risk of suffering a back injury due to the intense physical activity they participate in. Whether the sport is gymnastics, basketball, football, weight training, or simply all around physical fitness, the spine experiences greater amounts of pressure and stress, twisting, flexion, extension and even bodily impact than an individual whom does not engage in strenuous physical activities. The demanding training and exercises of athletes can place significant amounts of force on the spine which may cause damage or injury to even the best and most fit athletes.

Although the entire spine is used during a majority of sports, it is estimated that a considerable amount of athletic injuries are associated with the lumbar spine, or low back. The prevalent rate of low back pain in athletes range from 1 percent to 40 percent. Back injuries in younger athletes are a common circumstance, resulting in 10 percent to 15 percent of individuals.

Back pain in athletes can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain. Acute back pain is characterized by unexpected symptoms which usually last from several days to several weeks. Chronic back pain is identified when the symptoms last for more than three months.

Chiropractic for Athletes with Back Pain

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options available for athletes experiencing back pain and discomfort. A recent study researched numerous alternative treatments, including chiropractic care, to determine the efficiency of each when treating back symptoms. According to the study, chiropractic treatment showed the most promising results.

 

Chiropractic care offers many benefits for athletes than just treating an existing back injury or complication. After diagnosing the source of the individual’s back pain, a chiropractor may use spinal adjustments and manual manipulations to carefully treat an athlete. Spinal misalignments, which can occur after trauma from an injury, can be gradually corrected through chiropractic, slowly restoring the individuals natural, spinal alignment. Chiropractic adjustments will also help reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae as well as help strengthen the surrounding muscles and tissues, improve the body’s natural flexibility and range of motion and increase blood flow, ultimately increasing athletic performance.

After a series of spinal manipulations, a chiropractor may recommend a set of stretches and exercises to speed up the rehabilitation process and ensure athletes return to their specific sport as quickly as possible. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment can also be used to prevent injuries in the future. Because the strength and flexibility of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues of the body increase through chiropractic care, a variety of sports injuries caused by stiff muscles can be avoided.
