Santa Rosa Chiropractor Discusses Chiropractic Care to Treat and Prevent Sports Injuries
A sports injury can take you out of the game for days or even weeks. Even if you do not play sports, having a sprain, strain or back pain can prevent you from going to work, taking care of your family, or engaging in your favorite hobby. Fortunately, our Santa Rosa chiropractor at Dr. Kyle Chiropractic Center provides sports injury treatment.
There are many types of sports injuries. Runner’s knee develops when running damages the cartilage under your kneecap. Tennis elbow causes pain to the outside of your elbow when the tissue connecting your forearm muscle to your elbow becomes irritated. Inflamed tissue on the bottom of your foot causes plantar fasciitis.
Many of these conditions develop as the result of overuse, poor training, or improper equipment.
Chiropractic Care for Sports Injury Treatment and Prevention
Chiropractic care is an effective approach for sports injury treatment and prevention. Chiropractic care can alleviate pain, stretch taut muscles, and ease spasms associated with sports injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate back and neck pain, for example. Care can include spinal adjustments, nutrition counseling, stretches and exercise, and massage therapy. Lifestyle advice can also help treat the aches and pains associated with sports injuries.
Our chiropractor can also help you lower your risk of developing a sports injury by teaching you how to stretch your muscles before engaging in physical activity, how to use proper body mechanics, and by helping you strengthen important muscle groups. Chiropractic professionals can also help you understand how to buy and use sports equipment properly.
