Sports Injury Treatment
Sports provide numerous benefits to people of all ages. Children who play sports will learn about teamwork, commitment, dedication, and perseverance. Adults who continue to participate in competitive athletics will stay in shape, providing a boost to their overall health. Of course, competitive athletics can also lead to serious injuries when people least expect them. Fortunately, with a well-rounded treatment approach, people can expedite their recovery process. This is when the team from Achieve Health and Wellness comes into play!
An Overview of Common Sports Injuries
There are several sports injuries that we commonly see in our office. Some of these include:
Sprains: Without a doubt, sprains are some of the most common injuries that we see. A sprain can occur in any joint in the body; however, some of the most common locations include the ankle, knee, wrist, and shoulder.
Strains: In contrast to sprains which impact the joints, strains impact the muscles. We see strains on a regular basis as well. A strain occurs when a muscle fiber is stretched too far. This can lead to a long recovery process if not treated appropriately.
Overuse Injuries: We also see a lot of overuse injuries in our office. These tend to impact the shoulder, elbow, hips, and knees. Those who suffer from overuse injuries need to know that a well-rounded treatment approach can accelerate their recovery process.
Treatment of Sports Injury
Those who are looking for a well-rounded treatment plan should rely on the help of a Bolingbrook Chiropractor. Some of the treatment plants include:
Adjustments and Manipulations: These are two of the cornerstones of a chiropractic treatment plan. These procedures can be performed on the spine or on the extremities themselves. These are done to ensure that all of the joints and vertebrae are lined up in the appropriate manner.
Physical Therapy: This is also a vital part of someone’s recovery process. Physical therapy is done to improve someone’s strength, flexibility, and range of motion. This is important for providing an injury site with the appropriate support. This will prevent future injuries from happening.
