Sports Injury and Treatment
Updated: Jan 15
Before any sports activities, it is always good to warm up and stretch your body. Be as flexible as possible during the event, so you are not causing harm to the muscles by overstretching or causing tears to the muscles and joints.
It isn’t wise to push through the pain of an injury and that is why athletes consult with a Chiropractor to improve muscle and joint conditions, which have a direct effect on athletic performance.
Common types of sports injuries include:
Sprains or strains
Injuries to the knees
Fractures or broken bones
Rotator cuff injury.
You can effectively treat many minor sports injuries at home using the RICE method of rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Using this method for sports injuries can help to reduce any swelling or pain.
Regular chiropractic treatment can reduce the risk of injury and improve performance.
Physiotherapists can assess your limitations and strengths and design a tailored training program to take your physical prowess to the next level.
