Sports injuries can come in all kinds of variations. Sports injuries can result from impact or repetitive use. Hyper extending joints or stretching tendons can also result in an injury. Mainstream medicine, unfortunately, will often only address the most obvious symptom of an injury which is pain. Using prescribed pain killers can often result in harsh side effects as well as addiction. Many people are looking for safer and more natural ways to deal with pain resulting from a sports injury. Chiropractic care can help you address these pain issues without harmful drugs.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
A chiropractor will look at the root cause of your sports injury pain. When the root cause of an injury is addressed, you can better achieve long-term healing. In many cases, a muscle, tendon, or joint that is affected during a sports injury needs physical therapy to return to full functionality. A chiropractor will be able to work you through physical therapy to help build muscle strength and flexibility.
Tendons that have been injured will often need extensive stretching to regain their natural flexibility. A chiropractor can safely guide you through the necessary exercises to achieve this. Massage therapy is also a helpful form of treatment that you can receive at the chiropractor's office. Massage therapy can help loosen tightened muscles and work out knots and tension.
Hot cold therapy is also helpful in treating sports injuries. Cold laser therapy is also often used. Remember it is important to seek out a sports injury chiropractor for your sports injury treatment as soon as possible.
