Chiropractic Care and Sports Injuries

For some people, their sport is their life or their avenue to a better one. For others, sports are a fun way to stay healthy or an enjoyable pastime. Regardless of your reason for playing sports, an injury can be life-altering, but a sports injury chiropractor can help. Learn how in the guide below from Dr. Rozich, Dr. Schrickel, and the team at Schrickel Health & Wellness Center in Wintersville, OH.


The Basics of Sports Injuries

No matter your chosen sport or activity, related injuries typically occur to a part of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Some of the most common include:

  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Misalignment
  • Herniated discs
  • Strains and sprains
  • Ankle injuries

These injuries often create other injuries, impacting performance and – at times – preventing you from participating at all.

For example, a shoulder injury can keep you from throwing and swinging well. Additionally, as the back works to overcompensate, it can lead to tension and misalignment, which means an even lengthier recovery period.

Many musculoskeletal injuries also impact the nerves. As the nerves are responsible for muscle function, organ function, and much more, it can impact your general health and wellness.


How a Sports Chiropractor Can Help

Chiropractors aren’t just interested in providing surface-level relief. They are committed to helping you heal, from the inside out. This begins with a full assessment of the entire musculoskeletal system to identify all troubled areas.

You’ll then receive a customized treatment plan that utilizes a combination of natural, non-invasive techniques. These can include but are not limited to the following.

  • Adjustments: Restoring alignment is crucial for optimal healing.
  • Spinal decompression: When issues like herniated discs and nerve compression are at play, decompression therapy is utilized to stretch the spine and relieve pressure from these components.
  • Soft tissue techniques: Electrical stimulation, ultrasound therapy, and more are used to help relieve tension, break up trigger points, release muscle spasms, and increase blood flow to troubled areas.
  • Therapeutic exercise: Targeted stretching and strengthening movements can help enhance healing, prevent future injuries, and restore range of motion.

Your chiropractor will put together the best combination of techniques for your individual needs to help you recover quickly and naturally.
