Sports/Auto Injuries


How Can Chiropractic Care in Charlotte Help Resolve a Traumatic Sports or Car Accident Injury?

Sports injuries refer to the kinds of injury that occur during sports or exercise. Automobile accident injuries refer to the kinds of injuries suffered in auto accidents and can result in broad spectrum of severity. While it is possible to injure any part of the body when playing sports or in an auto accident, the term sports/auto injuries is commonly used to refer to injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Acute injuries usually occur suddenly while participating in sports/exercise or suffering a whiplash type injury in an automobile accident. They may result in sudden and severe pain, the inability to bear weight on a limb, or inability to move the affected part of the body. Chronic injuries usually result from overuse of one area of the body over a period of time. Symptoms of chronic injuries include soreness, dull aching pain, and pain during participation in physical activity.

Possible Causes

The Chiropractic Solution for Sports Injuries

Many professional athletes are utilizing chiropractic care more and more because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Articles continue to appear in major newspapers and magazines citing such stars as Arnold Schwartzeneger, former boxing champ Evander Holyfield, and football stars such as Emmit Smith and Joe Montana proclaiming the benefits that chiropractic has meant for their careers. In the same regard many that have suffered from automobile accidents injury claim that they felt better faster. Chiropractic treatment of whiplash & soft tissue injuries allowed these patients to stay pain-free for a longer period of time when compared to the traditional allopathic approach of pain management. Medication simply addresses the symptoms, where as gentle chiropractic treatment has a better chance of getting to the source of the pain. Doctors at ChiroCarolina feel the whole premise of chiropractic health care is to restore spinal health so that the body has the best opportunity to maximize proper function. Therefore it is not hard to understand why athletes of all levels and motorists enjoy what chiropractic has to offer.

Chiropractic Treatment for Car Accident Injuries

Chiropractic offers a balanced approach to the treatment and the healing of sports and automobile accident injuries. In order to help the injured areas return to normal function doctors at ChiroCarolina use the gentle chiropractic adjustment to return spinal segments and extremity joints to their normal mobility and utilize physiotherapy to help the supportive tissues (muscles, tendons, & ligaments). Combined with some rest to help the healing process, athletes and motorists will find their way back on the court, field, or road. Afterward, better strategies for exercise and stretching will be discussed with the patient to help them stay on the straight and narrow path of optimum biomechanical health.
