Chiropractic care can not only help resolve the initial injury but also identify the underlying cause of non traumatic injuries. Once identified, help can be provided to reduce the chances of repeat episodes.
Sporting injuries can affect everyone. There are generally two types of injury from sporting activity: the traumatic event (a bad tackle) or secondly, a sprain/strain injury caused by going beyond the functional capability of the body. At any level of activity this is always possible. Chiropractic care can help deal with most sports injuries, Tennis elbow for example.
The focus of chiropractic care for sporting injuries is to resolve the initial injury sustained, then identify the underlying cause if appropriate. Providing good focused neuro-musculoskeletal care helps to speed recovery.
Rehabilitation is included in the treatment plan and this can help anybody recover and then achieve performance optimisation of the musculoskeletal system.
It has been shown that restoration of the mobility of the spine and joints through chiropractic manipulation integrated with soft tissue techniques provide an effective treatment protocol for sportsmen and women.In essence the care provided helps damaged tissues repair and then resolve the underlying functional imbalance. Until the body is functionally balanced, full recovery can be delayed or prevented.
By offering gait, functional and postural analysis to all, we can identify, treat or rehabilitate the underlying functional imbalances, helping to return people back to their sporting activities, or, if needed make changes to bio-mechanical function before injury occurs. This kind of analysis is a vital tool for all.
Of course you don’t need to be an Olympian to seek this kind of help from a chiropractor. Chiropractic can work for everyone, from the weekend warrior to the elite athlete. It can provide effective therapeutic interventions, enhance rehabilitation and provide effective athletic health maintenanc
