Whether you play team sports or exercise on your own, sports injuries are never too far away. Suffering from a sports injury is a common occurrence that can affect both children and adults alike. When someone suffers from a sports injury, it may be difficult to heal from pain and get back out on the field without the help of a chiropractor.
At Edison Square Chiropractic Clinic, we want to serve our community members serving Fort Myers, FL, and Cape Coral, FL, by offering treatment for sports injury. Our chiropractor, Dr. Dan, and the rest of his staff will help you during rehabilitation from your sports injury.
What Is a Sports Injury?
A sports injury is any injury obtained during the playing of sports or during exercise. Physical activity can lead to a sports injury, including common ones such as:
- Runner's knee
- Shin splits
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Achilles heel injuries
- Overuse injuries
- Little league elbow
- Muscle tears
- Broken bones
- Dislocated bones
- Shoulder injuries
These are just some of the many common types of sports injuries that can impact your ability to exercise and make it difficult to fully recover.
Getting Help from Our Chiropractor
It's important to seek the help from our chiropractor if your injuries are unable to heal on their own, or if your pain is severe. Mild injuries, such as strains and sprains, might heal on their own without intervention. However, it's never a good idea to ignore a sports injury and continue playing. Doing so can increase the chances of re-injury, weaken the muscle, and lead to complications from your injury.
Our chiropractor will help during the rehabilitation process by offering a wide range of treatment options for your sports injury. This may include:
- Muscle exercises to strengthen the muscle and improve mobility and flexibility
- Spinal and manual adjustments if your spine has now become misaligned due to your injury
- Massage therapy to reduce inflammation and pain in sore and tense muscles
Using these chiropractic treatment methods will ensure you do everything possible to fully recover from your injuries and start playing sports again!
