Sports Injuries: How Chiropractic Can Help
Sports aren’t just fun to participate in, but they are an important part of an active healthy lifestyle. One major factor of our health is exercise, without it our cardiovascular system has a higher risk for disease, not to mention we’re just generally out of shape. Whether you’re a couch potato or a triathlon frequenter, you have to agree sports can come with a price. Runners may develop knee problems from bad running techniques, bodybuilders may develop joint problems from too much lifting or yoga enthusiasts may end up a pretzel. Once it happens, you’re going to want to fix it quickly so you can get back on your game.
Common sports injuries are:
- Knee injuries
- Back injuries
- Muscle strain
- Bruises, or contusions
- Tennis elbow
Too much exercise can result in joint degeneration, muscle strain and in some cases, torn ligaments. Symptoms of sports injuries include muscle pain, swelling, dull pain, burning pain, tingling sensations, headache, muscle spasms and inflammation. If you participate in sports, you more than likely have a good relationship with your body and overall health. The usual treatment for sports related injuries can be a simple bottle of prescribed pain relievers such as ibuprofen or Tylenol.
