Common Sports Injuries
Sporting activities are prone to a wide variety of injuries. These include common injuries that lead to shoulder pain, knee pain, and other painful areas of the body. The seven most common sports injuries include injuries in need of pain relief such as ACL tears, shin splints, groin pulls, ankle sprain, patellofemoral syndrome, hamstring strain, and tennis elbow – also known as Tendinitis.
Sports Injury Treatment
Manual spinal manipulation is an essential method used in chiropractic sports injury treatment. It reestablishes arrangement and equalization to the spine, assuaging strain so the body is less helpless against damage. Be that as it may, different techniques must be utilized when sports damage treatment goes past the neck and back.
Sports Taping – Kinesio
Kinesio Taping – also known as sports taping – involves the application of textured tape in a specially designed pattern to form compression bands. The goal is to change muscle tone, correct the flow of lymphatic fluids, and improved posture. The end result is reduced pain, accelerated healing, and prevention of injury.
Sports Massage Therapy & Myofascial Scar Tissue Reduction
All forms of massage therapy can help reduce musculoskeletal injuries due to sports activities. Massage that employs specially designed devices as well as deep tissue, manual massage is useful for myofascial scar tissue reduction which is an ideal sports injury treatment.
These techniques are known to reduce overall recovery time, promote flexibility, lower pain, prevent future injury, and improve range of motion. This is accomplished by their ability to mobilize the soft tissues of the body and break up scar tissue.
To assist with knee pain, shoulder pain, and injuries to the other extremities; chiropractic care utilizes techniques which focus directly on those areas. Known as extremity chiropractic, this involves the use of chiropractic techniques directly on the tissues and joints of the body to help them return to their peak strength and wellness.
