Common Sports Injuries Treated by a Chiropractor

Athletes most commonly suffer from soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, sprains, pulled muscles, and joint problems like runner’s knee. Quick movements, forceful impacts, over-training, repetitive motions, and failing to warm up or stretch before athletic activity can all cause sports injuries such as those mentioned. All of these injuries and more can be successfully treated by a chiropractor.

Common Chiropractic Treatments for Sports Injuries

Chiropractors are skilled in manually manipulating the spine. This manipulation ensures that the bones of the spine are properly aligned and balanced which relieves tension within one’s body. This, in turn, allows the body to become less vulnerable to injury and generally function better.

Helpful treatments used by chiropractors to treat sports injuries include the Graston Technique, Kinesio Taping Therapy, and Active Release Therapy, among others.

Graston Technique

This type of manual therapy is a mobilization of the soft-tissues with the assistance of instruments. It employs the use of specialized instruments to gently scrape or massage the skin. It is used to help the chiropractor break up scar tissue and locate areas of restriction.

Kinesio Taping

This is a unique method of applying a textured tape in a specifically designed way. It is a form of compression therapy that corrects the movement patterns of lymphatic fluids, improve one’s posture, and change muscle tone.

Active Release Technique

Another treatment to break up scar tissue, Active Release is a kind of soft tissue manipulation that a chiropractor can use to help treat sports injuries. It is known to help improve range of motion, lower pain, prevent injuries, improve recovery time, and promote flexibility.

Other Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor for Athletes

In addition to treating a sports injury after it happens, a chiropractor can help athletes avoid injury, to begin with and generally enjoy better all-around health. Regular care at the hands of a skilled chiropractor like Dr. Forrest Watts has been proven to promote better balance and overall performance.

Before any new sport or exercise regimen, it is advisable to first be evaluated by a trained chiropractor. We can check your spine and muscles for any imbalance and release any pent-up tension. This release makes you less likely to injure yourself and allows the body to perform naturally.
