Most amateur and professional athletes will experience a sports injury at some point in their lives. Sports injuries can have lifelong effects on your body – especially when left untreated.
How Chiropractors Treat Sports Injuries
Chiropractors specialize in treating sports injuries. Many athletes depend on chiropractors for effective sports injury treatment.
One of the key differences between chiropractors and medical doctors is that chiropractors treat the body as an integrated system. An injury in one part of the body can lead to symptoms elsewhere in the body. Athletes who receive treatment from a doctor may find themselves benched and on the sidelines as they recover from an invasive surgery. Others might find themselves receiving prescriptions for painkillers. These treatments tackle the symptom – but they don’t heal the root cause.
Chiropractors, meanwhile, take a holistic and balanced approach to sports injuries. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments and physical therapy techniques to restore normal function to the patient’s tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Athletes can get on the path to long-term health and wellness. Chiropractors meticulously tend to the needs of the athlete, paying special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. By the end of chiropractic care treatment, the chiropractor will have ensured that all parts of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously in their healthiest, most natural state.
