Treatment for Sports Injuries
Every year, more than 213 million men, women, and children take part in sports and fitness activities around the country according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For many of these athletes and enthusiasts, injuries are simply a part of playing the game. Sprains, strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, broken bones, and dislocations top the list of what puts athletes on the sidelines.
How a Chiropractor Can Help with a Sports Injury
If you have suffered from a sports injury, there are many ways a chiropractor can be a partner in your journey back to the field, court, or track. At Back Talk Chiropractic in Lexington, Dr. Tolson and her team will work with you to help get you back in the game.
We provide treatment to help with the following:
- Pain management: Chiropractic care is an excellent alternative to medication when it comes to treating the painful symptoms of an injury.
- Treating the cause: While pain management is an important part of treating a sports injury, at Back Talk Chiropractic, we also concentrate on treating the cause itself to help prevent further injury. Our therapies are dependent on the injury itself but may include joint manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and individualized exercises.
- Increased range of motion: Our chiropractor can help with injuries that lead to stiffness, tension, or pain in your joints that is hindering you from performing at your highest level.
- Lifestyle advice: As part of our treatment plan for your overall health and wellness, we will also look at your lifestyle. We will not simply focus on your athletic pursuits. We may offer some recommendations for changes that can improve your performance and health.
Helping Athletes Before They Are Injured
Chiropractors can help athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle even before they are injured. As part of your chiropractic care, our team at Back Talk Chiropractic will examine the alignment of your spine. That is because when your spine is properly aligned it offers a strong foundation of support and protection for your body, which is important when playing sports. Athletes often experience several significant benefits from chiropractic care. Their recovery time from an injury is often shorter and their overall health and wellness are improved.
