MN Chiropractic Care Service | Sports Injuries

There are good reasons why the athlete should seek sports chiropractic for the treatment and rehabilitation of a sport injury. Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Most physicians have not had special training in sports medicine or rehabilitation. So even, outstanding physicians who treat athletes regularly don’t often make mistakes in the diagnosis and treatment of athletes’ neuromusculoskeletal problems.

The primary treatment of the Doctor of Chiropractic is manipulation (an Adjustment) to those areas of the spine or surrounding joints which are slightly displaced and fail to function normally. The adjustment will restore proper alignment and function to your body, therefore restoring the normal nerve transmission and healing potential to the vital structure of the body.

Chiropractic Treatment Can Prevent Future Injuries!

While our extremities transmit and motion at a distance, they also favor musculoskeletal injuries by amplifying forces acting on the body’s neuromusculoskeletal system. The sheer volume of time put into training by professional athletes is often quite remarkable. For instance, runners may compete and train over 200 miles per week, swimmers may spend four to five hours in the water, and the acquisition of skills for an event such as a pentathlon may utilize even longer periods per day. Therefore, the exploitation of athletic prowess can easily be disruption by major and minor injury tribulations.

Chiropractic offers a balance approach to the treatment and the healing to restoring the body. So your body has the best opportunity to maximize proper function. Therapeutic exercise, massage, and nutritional support are part of patients care when appropriate. Injuries like sprains (ankle), strains (eg. Pulled muscles), tendinitis and bursitis (eg. shoulder pain) and joint problems in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, and foot can all be treated effectively with chiropractic care. These are all good reasons to seek chiropractic care. However, the beauty of chiropractic is not only drug-free and surgery free care, but also preventative and performance enhancing care. Maintaining proper alignment will allow athletes to be prepared for their sport. Many of the greatest athletes in the world are adjusted before completion as a “boost” in an effort to place their bodies in a state of peak efficiency. Following competition, they are adjusted to enhance the recuperative process after the stress of their particular occasion.

Many professional athletes are utilizing Chiropractic treatments more and more because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Not only do they treat all types of sport injuries, they can also help to minimize the risk of getting one.
