Sports InjuriesInjuries have become common in sports. Sports injuries can happen to any athlete, regardless of the competition, skill level, and experience. Professional attention is usually required when an injury occurs. If injuries are left untreated, scar tissue may build up in the injured area. Untreated injuries can cause headaches, pain in your back, and pain in your joints. 

Care through chiropractic has gained plenty of popularity in the athletic world. Some people in the sports world once thought injuries would receive little benefits from chiropractic care. Now, it has become common for teams and sports leagues to add chiropractors to their medical and training staffs. Chiropractic doctors can treat several injuries to an athlete’s body, no matter if the athletes are youths or professionals.

Repeated motions in training and activities can cause strains on the soft joints and tissues. This can cause pulling of the tendons, ligaments, and muscles, which can cause the scar tissues.Active release techniques consist of deep tissue therapy which will break up the adhesions or scar tissue. When the active release technique is combined with chiropractic care, an increase in joint range will occur almost immediately. This is an important factor for athletes who need to be placed on the fast track on the recovery road, due to the nature of the sport they participate. When soft tissue and joints are aligned properly, athletes will be prepared for their sports.

Another popular technique is known as Kinesiotaping. Kinesiotape is applied to the areas that will aid in the healing process by pulling skin away from the tissue, allowing for better circulation. When you receive better circulation, the healing process will become faster and more efficient. A weak muscle can be improved or an overused muscle can be inhibited, depending on the method of taping.

Another injury that many athletes need to be treated for is lateral epicondylitis(tennis elbow). Medical Acupuncture can help increase the circulation of blood and reduces inflammation. Acupuncture can help heal the injuries by increasing the immune system while enhancing the healing process. Acupuncture is also helpful for hamstring strains, tightness of the muscles, and lower back pain.

The above techniques are a few of the techniques within chiropractic care that helps athletes perform at their highest peak, and recover quickly from various injuries.
