When you’re regularly pushing your body to the limits of its strength,
flexibility, and endurance, you run the risk of sustaining a sports injury.
Repeated motion, heavy or violent impact, over-exertion, and failure to
prepare your body for intense physical activity in advance are often the
root causes of sports injuries. This is just as true for football and
rugby players as it is for dancers and gymnasts, as well as for athletes
of any class or level of intensity.
The pain and inflammation associated with most sports injuries is enough
to keep athletes from progressing and competing, and they can even prevent
participation in normal activities of daily living. Regardless of how
debilitating or seemingly minor the effects of your sports injury may
be, it is always a good idea to consider how a
Houston sports medicine chiropractor may be able to ease the physical pain of your injury and help facilitate
It is important to note that, while a chiropractor is uniquely qualified
to address issues of the back, neck, and spine, they can still provide
valuable expertise and medical insight, regardless of whether or not you
have sustained a spinal injury. A chiropractor will make a point to assess
your posture, balance, and back, as well as your joints, limbs, and appendages.
They will also try to determine whether any preexisting issues caused
your injury and decide what the best course of action is, regarding your
injury and the underlying causes, in order to prevent a similar injury
from happening in the future.
Chiropractic treatments can relieve tension on your spine and joints, reduce
swelling and inflammation around the site of your injury, or relieve pain
by other non-invasive methods such as alternative treatments involving
heat, cold, or electrical stimulation. Regardless of the nature of your
injury, a sports injury chiropractor at our Houston injury rehab center
will be able to assess your needs and determine a proper course of treatment
to help ensure your speedy recovery and get you back in the game.
