When a sporting injury occurs it is often a result of a problem that may have been present for some time before the pain appears.
When taking part in sport your body becomes prone to injuries whether you are an amateur or enthusiast. Repeated stresses can result in a decrease in movement in the joints of your spine which can them affect your muscles and nerves. Sporting injuries can be a one off or are often a history of niggles that result in a chronic condition. Common sporting injures we see are:
- Hamstring and calf strains
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Groin and thigh strain/sprain
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder pains
This is just a short list and any one of these can limit your performance or stop it all together.
Chiropractic treatment can speed up your recovery and also improve your performance by making sure your body is functioning to its optimum potential and prevent further problems.
If you have a pain during or related to sport call us today for advice. Do not run through the pain as the pain is there for a reason. Pain means that your body is not working properly and you will continue to overload the injury and potentially make it worse.
We don’t use painkillers; we aim to get you better by treating the cause of pain and then helping you to prevent re-occurrence. This can be done through chiropractic treatment and is often followed by a rehabilitation program that includes stretches and exercises.
