Relief From Sports Injury
I'm an athlete. Do many athletes use chiropractic care?
Yes. Many amateur and professional athletes use chiropractic treatment as part of their overall health care, fitness and maintenance program. Chiropractic is often used to improve muscle and joint conditions, which have a direct effect on athletic performance.
What to Do If You Are Injured
Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t wise to push through the pain of an injury. Seek medical treatment if you meet any of the following conditions:
You are experiencing severe pain, swelling, or numbness.
You can’t put any weight on the affected area.
You are experiencing increased pain, swelling, and instability in a previously injured area.
That being said, you can effectively treat many minor sports injuries at home using the RICE method of rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
An experienced chiropractor is also able to help in a number of ways. Sports massages can alleviate the pain and swelling incurred in an injury. They can also serve to optimize performance by stimulating healthy blood flow and warming up muscles.
Regular chiropractic treatment can reduce the risk of injury and improve performance. Contact us today for an appointment, and we’ll help you get back in the game.
