Types of Sports Injuries Vary. These Are the Most Common:

A sports injury can range from mild to severe and potentially career-ending, although even mild injuries can disrupt a person's daily life and athletic performance. Common sports injuries we diagnose and treat at our clinic include:

  • muscle strains
  • tendonitis
  • shoulder labrum tears
  • golfer's elbow and tennis elbow
  • runner's knee and other types of knee pain
  • shin splints
  • plantar fasciitis
  • facet joint pain
  • shoulder pain
  • hip pain
  • sciatica and other kinds of nerve compression
  • generalized back pain and neck pain

Risk Factors for Sports Injury

Anyone who participates in physical activities can experience a sports injury, whether a beginner or advanced athlete, and whether high-impact or low-impact sports. Of course, contact and high-impact sports are inherently more prone to injury, but other risk factors include:

  • poor sleep and nutrition
  • ineffective training program (e.g., doing too much too soon or not resting enough)
  • playing surface
  • equipment (e.g., ill-fitting, broken, worn)
  • accidents
  • repetitive movement (e.g., throwing, jumping)

Even age and gender of the athlete may influence sports injury risk. For example, we tend to see stress fractures in the feet and ACL injuries in the knee more often in young female athletes.

Why Chiropractic Care Can Help You Recover from Sports Injuries

Chiropractic care is an excellent resource for injured athletes. We use completely drug-free and non-invasive interventions that can minimize your downtime and increase your rate of tissue healing. Spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, and even lifestyle and nutritional guidance will set your body up for optimal recovery and can help you avoid recurring or future problems. 

Chiropractors can clue you into underlying movement patterns or range of motion limitations that could be abnormally stressing certain tissues or joints in your body. And by improving the overall function of your nervous system, chiropractic care can even help you improve your coordination, balance, and skills development.
