While some think of going to a chiropractor as something that is specifically sought out to relieve back pain, it actually serves a much larger purpose and can help treat and prevent many different types of sports injuries. At Isanti Family Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractor, Dr. Paul Bergley has 25 years of experience providing relief for a variety of ailments, including sports injuries.
When injuries happen in organized sports, such as football, baseball, or golf, athletes are often sent to a sports rehab doctor in order to recover from their injuries more quickly, but in many instances this type of specialist does not work alone.
Sports chiropractic can also play a significant role not only in treating injuries after they occur, but also to help build and maintain strength that will prevent many from happening, or reduce associated discomfort. Sports chiropractic has become a major part of keeping athletes healthy, in fact, a 2002 survey revealed that nearly a third of professional football teams employed their own staff chiropractor to help them deal with smaller instances of aches, pains, and general misalignments before they became bigger problems. Here are few common conditions sports chiropractic can help with:
Close to half of tennis players experience tennis elbow at some point. Sports chiropractic can help treat this type of injury through specific joint manipulation.
Preventative chiropractic treatments help keep many lower limb and hamstring injuries at bay through strength training and maintenance. Baseball and softball players are often susceptible to these injuries.
Team sport athletes aren't the only ones who can benefit from chiropractic care. Many lower back injuries are caused by repetitive twist and pressure that is often experienced by runners. Those who play a lot of golf, even just for fun, may twist their back as they work to perfect their swing. A sports chiropractic specialist can help identify how these types of injuries keep occurring, and can often give these athletes the tools they need in order to prevent them or reduce their frequency.
Being able to run is especially important for many runners, who consider running to be more than what they do, but part of who they are. Runners often use a combination of chiropractic care that reinforces and improves joint mobilization, along with physical therapy, which puts a greater emphasis on strength.Sports chiropractic helps to make sure soft tissue of the muscles are properly supported by evaluating their movement, how the arches of their feet affect their running, and their knee alignment.
If you are an athlete, whether you are facing a specific injury or not, there's a good chance that sports chiropractic can help keep you at the top of your game.
