Common Sports Injuries To Get Chiropractic Care
Any sport can pose a potential for spinal injury that would require chiropractic treatment. The areas that chiropractic treatment typically focuses on are the back, neck, hips, shoulders and even ankles. Even sports that you may not associate with being highly physical have the possibility of sending someone to a chiropractic office.
Sports such as football, basketball, hockey and other high impact sports are the most common to require a chiropractor visit or visits. Sports that run a high risk of collision are often the sports that result in dislocated joints and torn muscles. However, your sport doesn’t have to be a high-impact sport to warrant chiropractic care. Golf, for example, uses many of the same motions again and again and a chiropractor can treat wear and tear to pain or injury sustained while golfing.
Professional Athletes And Chiropractic Care
While chiropractic care is beneficial for all bodies, professional athletes who stretch and push their body past the point non-athletes do certainly benefit from regular and preventative chiropractic care. Professional athletes are at a higher risk for injury than the average person exercising a few times a week. It is not uncommon to find that professional football, baseball, basketball teams, along with others, all have a chiropractor on staff and present for games and matches.
Chiropractic care is great for professional athletes after they have sustained an injury as it can provide treatment options that enable the body to heal on its own. It is also a great resource for professional athletes to be proactive about their well-being before an injury occurs. Chiropractic adjustments can help the body stay flexible and able to adapt while performing at the highest levels.
