Do You Have a Sports Injury? Come and See Our Nashville, TN, Chiropractor for Treatment
In 2017, sports contributed to well over 2 million injuries in the United States alone. While some of these sports injuries required surgery or other invasive treatments, many can be solved through various chiropractic methods. Fortunately, the experts at Bellevue Chiropractic Center in Nashville, TN, have the experience and knowledge to help you heal from a wide range of sports injuries.
Most Common Sports Injuries
Sprained ankles are probably the most common sports injury in the world. That said, the type of injuries that athletes and even exercise-enthusiasts experience vary by activity. For example, basketball players frequently experience ankle sprains, groin pulls, and shin splints. Alternatively, football players are more likely to experience head injuries like concussions, ACL injuries, and broken limbs.
Most mild-to-moderate sports injuries can be treated with chiropractic care. Torn or overextended muscles, joint dislocations, and other injuries that lead to chronic pain of the soft tissues are some of the most common and treatable sports injuries.
What Can a Chiropractor Do For Your Sports Injury?
Chiropractic care works in two distinct ways: prevention and treatment. If you want to prevent sports injuries, we highly recommend visiting our chiropractor before intense sporting events. Regular visits to the chiropractor can lessen the chances of experiencing sports injuries in the future by easing tension in your muscles and other soft tissue.
If you’ve already had a sports-related injury, our chiropractor can help ease the pain and speed up your recovery time. Here are just a few of the ways that chiropractic care can get you back on your feet after a sports injury:
- Spinal adjustment: This technique is most common for lower, middle, and upper back pain. Spinal adjustment can help realign the spinal column and resolve herniated discs.
- Stretching exercises: Stretching out muscles is one of the best ways to prevent injuries and test your range of mobility post-injury.
- Hot and cold therapy: Soft tissue pain can often be lessened or even resolved by alternating heat and cold on the affected area.
