Sports Injuries Treatment from our North Olmsted and Cleveland Heights Chiropractor
For some athletes, sports injuries can mean the end of a promising athletic career. However, you don’t need to be a professional athlete to run the risk of attaining a sports injury. These types of injuries can occur when one least expects them and can happen to those who only occasionally play sports, or even for people who exercise by simply going out for a walk each day. At Dreas Healthcare Services, our chiropractor helps many patients recovering from sports injuries.
Common Sports Injuries
Many different types of sports injuries can be successfully treated with chiropractic medicine. However, here are some of the most common:
Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
This condition is sometimes referred to as “runner's knee,” and leads to pain and tenderness in the area surrounding the knee when the patella joint is worn down due to the types of repetitive motion that are associated with playing sports.
Rotator cuff injury
Sports that call for repetitive overhead motion can result in a tear or strain of the muscles that are depended upon most to provide stable mobility.
Sometimes referred to as “golfer's elbow,” or “tennis elbow,” this condition manifests with inflammation and irritation of the muscles in the elbow area.
Back pain can have many different causes, from a joint subluxation to a disc herniation or whiplash, the upper and lower back pain and neck can result in numbness, stiffness, weakness in the legs or arms and pain.
The arch of the foot, or plantar fascia, can become irritated, causing pain in the foot or heel.
Chiropractic Treatment for Sports Injuries
Chiropractic medical treatment can help prevent sports injuries to the ankle, neck, knees, shoulders or back using non-invasive treatment modalities. Chiropractors are especially skilled to manually adjust the spine, ensuring that the injured party's bones are correctly aligned and balanced. This enables greater overall bodily function and helps the person being treated to become less susceptible to injury. Most chiropractic treatments are designed to either enhance or restore joint function, while, at the same time resolve inflammation of the joints and reduce pain.
