Chiropractic care is an option for most people who enjoy sports as a means to exercise and as a form of competition, as all sports usually present risks of injury. It is even more ideal for professional athletes who run the risk of injury every day as their sport of choice is their means of livelihood.

The risks associated with sports

Chiropractic specialists say that there are a lot of risks that come with sports, ranging from minor discomfort to serious injuries and finally to life-threatening conditions. Some of the problems encountered in sports include muscle sprains and strains, Achilles’ tendon injury, shin splints, fractures, dislocations, and so on.

Chiropractic Care in Charlotte and the treatment of sport injuries

Chiropractic Care is usually the farthest thing from an athlete’s mind when a sports injury occurs, however it has been proven to be very effective in reducing the pain and having a quicker recovery than other treatment options like surgery. For example, in the case of plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation of the ligament that connects the heel to the front of the door supporting the arch, chiropractic care which involves stretching techniques has been found to be useful in the treatment of this condition.

Another common sports injury termed shin splints which is usually the throbbing, aching, or stabbing pain on the insides of the lower leg can also be relieved with the said procedure, specifically with stretching techniques.

Chiropractic care is also useful for low back pain which can arise as a result of overuse, for example, playing too many rounds of golf or lifting heavyweights. Chiropractic care helps the patient to know and use proper form when exercising which in turn helps to protect the back.

There are many testimonies of people who through chiropractic care have made a quick comeback after experiencing a sports injury. Some of them are recorded below:

“During mountain bike riding, he pulled his lower back, but after sessions of chiropractic care which involved stretches and carefully placed adjustments, it drastically improved his condition”
