Sports Injury

Sports Injury occurs when an athlete’s participation in a specific sport or physical activity leads to an injury or causes an underlying condition. Frequent sports injuries include sprains and strains, knee injuries, shoulder injuries, Achilles tendonitis, and bone fractures. But most of all, chiropractic can also help with injury prevention

Athletes from all sports can benefit from chiropractic treatment. Adjustments can help treat injuries from high-impact sports, i.e., wrestling, football, and hockey. Athletes that get routine adjustments may notice improved athletic performance, improved range of motion along with flexibility, and increased blood flow.  

Because spinal adjustments will reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, the healing time from minor injuries can be shortened, which improves performance. Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments.  For high-impact athletes, increase performance and flexibility and lower the risk for injury for low-impact athletes, i.e., tennis players, bowlers, and golfers.  

Chiropractic is a natural way to treat and prevent different injuries and conditions that impact athletes. According to Dr. Jimenez, excessive training or improper gear, among other factors, are common causes of injury. Dr. Jimenez summarizes the various causes and effects of sports injuries on the athlete and explains the types of treatments and rehabilitation methods that can help improve an athlete’s condition.
