The kinds of sports injury we see most often at our Lithonia chiropractic clinic are classified as either acute or chronic. Importantly, many acute sports injuries can turn into chronic issues if left unaddressed and chronic injuries can increase your risk for an acute sports injury in the future!
These sports injuries include:
Depending on the nature and place of your sports injury, symptoms may include swelling, redness, pain, and instability. Chronic injuries might not be as intensely painful but can give rise to impaired range of motion, weakness, and improper movement mechanics.
Preventing a sports injury begins with understanding and avoiding known risk factors. Training too much or beyond your current ability level without allowing yourself enough rest and recovery is a major risk factor for injury. Additional factors include:
In addition to understanding and avoiding known risk factors, being proactive with your health will also reduce your risk of sports injury. For many active people, this includes regular chiropractic care!
Chiropractic services like spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, and non-invasive modalities like ultrasound and electrical stimulation reduce symptoms of injury and promote healing.
But chiropractic care goes beyond sports injury treatment. It can boost athletic potential by teaching you better movement mechanics, improving breath and core stability, and resolving old areas of scarring or movement limitations.
