How Can a Chiropractor Help After a Sports Injury?

If you’re an athlete, you understand the stress and demands we put on our bodies when we run, jump, lift, roll or swing for our sports.

Putting your body through years of athletics can result in tears, strains, and sprains, and even minor wear and tear that can be damaging and painful over time.

If you have pain because of a lingering sports injury, or if you’ve recently gotten hurt, you know how frustrating it can be to try to go through rehabilitation, especially if you’re anxious to get back on the field, the court, or into the gym.

Have you considered chiropractic care as an addition to your rehab? Chiropractors can treat and help prevent injuries in the neck, back, shoulders, knees, and ankles. Manual adjustments of the spine also ensures that bones are balanced, which helps relieve tension and promotes healing.

If you want relief for aches and pains due to an active lifestyle, chiropractic care could be your solution!

Here are the main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries:

1) Forceful impacts
2) Repetitive motions
3) Over training
4) Failure to warm up properly

If you want pain relief and want to heal faster, a chiropractor can help. Regular visits promote quicker recovery after games and training. That can and will lead to better performance.

Not an Athlete but Still Active? We Can Help You Too

Chiropractic care can also be beneficial to former athletes, or just those of us who are more active – avid walkers, runners, cyclists, and people who work out regularly.

Exercises performed with proper technique should not cause pain, even if you feel a little bit sore after working out. However, poor form or technique could cause an injury, or cause an old one to flare up.

If you’re prone to injuries due to working out, weight lifting, or CrossFit, we can help you too!

Let’s face it, if you injured your back, neck or any other part of your body in the gym, you have a lot of options when it comes to treatment. Everything from over-the-counter medications and massage to foam rolling and stretching. Chiropractic care is a great way to improve recovery time too, as it will diagnose any musculoskeletal system issues that could cause blockages in your nervous system.

These blockages reduce nervous system communication, but research shows they can cause other health problems as well. Secondary conditions like headaches, neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling, sciatica and even digestive and breathing problems may result from blockages in the nervous system. Specific Correction chiropractic care will help any active person whether it be the weekend warrior training for a 5k or the seasoned weight lifter performing at the competitive level.

As a Specific Structural Corrective Chiropractor, Dr. Gessert is dedicated to diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause of your condition.
