chiropractors aim to get you back in the game.
Some common causes of sporting injuries in athletes are:
- Muscle asymmetry where one side of the body is different from the other
- Loss of mobility and flexibility issues
- Loss of spinal movement causing abnormal muscle tightness and strain
- Muscle spasm and tightness from overuse
- Trauma during sport causing injuries and placing stress on other areas of the body
When your body is injured it will automatically compensate by changing muscle tone and movement patterns both in the region of the injury, and other areas of the body as well, to protect the injured site.
how can chiropractic help an athlete?
Chiropractic care concentrates on restoring the normal movement to your spine, improving your movement range and strengthening your muscular system. These changes may help an athlete improve their performance.
This is not just for professional athletes either, our chiropractors see a varied mix of athletes, including the amateur and weekend sports players.
What Conditions Can Result from a Sports injury?
Playing sport can affect the body in many different ways, both positive and negative. As muscles, joints and ligaments are used throughout all facets of sport; strain, injury and trauma can easily occur.
Spinal injuries can limit your range of motion, affect your overall strength and reduce your performance, not ideal for sportsmen and women at any level.
During the participation in sport, a high degree of strain on the spine and structural system can occur. The lumbar spine (low back) is the most frequently injured area of the spine; not warming up or cooling down properly can be a huge factor when it comes to sports injuries.
Chiropractic care aims to promote and maintain good spinal function and balance. When athletes have sore muscles and joints from training and competing a chiropractor may help with their recovery and performance.
why see chiropractor for sport injuries?
Your body, including all its muscles and ligaments, relies upon proper joint movement for peak sporting performance. Injuries to your body can reduce the range of movement and potentially take you out of your sport indefinitely.
Whether you play soccer, football, golf, cricket, netball or bowls, we believe the most effective treatment for sports injuries is prevention.
