CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPORTS INJURY
Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, it’s no fun to experience a sports injury that keeps you from playing your best. While sports injuries are common, they can cause lasting pain if left untreated. At Churn Creek Chiropractic, our chiropractor in Redding is here to help you heal from sports injuries.
Common Sports Injuries
While there are many different sports injuries, some are more common than others. Let’s take a look at some of the most common sports injuries we see in our office.
- Shoulder injury. The shoulder is used much more often than some other joints in the body, and it undergoes a lot of force in many sports. This leaves the shoulder especially susceptible to injury. If you notice a tightness, pinching, or lessened range of motion in your shoulder, it’s important to seek treatment.
- Knee injury. The knee is a complicated joint, and there are many factors at play when a knee injury occurs. The IT band, ACL, kneecap, and other bones, ligaments, and muscle tissues can all become injured.
- Slipped/ herniated disc. The term “throw out your back” usually refers to a slipped or herniated disc in the spine. While common, this condition can be incredibly painful, and take a long time to heal.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
When you come in for your first appointment, our chiropractor will work with you to understand your injury and symptoms. Then we’ll develop a treatment plan specific to you. Your treatment plan may involve spinal adjustment, medical massage, hot/cold therapy, and lifestyle changes to support your healing process.
