Common Sports Injuries
Most people consider sports a fun way to compete and exercise. Unfortunately, sports often present risks for injuries, which can prevent you from participating from your favorite sport. Luckily, chiropractic care can help you recover quickly and get you back to doing what you love. At Amazing Spine Care in Jacksonville, FL, we can help. Our chiropractor can diagnose your injury with X-rays and other tests and create a treatment plan for you. Here are some of the most common sports injuries.
For many athletes, knee injuries are very common. You might experience pain around the knee or knee cap, and you may even suffer from tendinitis. Severe accidents can cause bone bruising or damage to ligaments and cartilages. Our chiropractor may use spinal manipulation or physiotherapy and exercise rehabilitation to help heal knee injuries.
Sprains and Strains
When ligaments are torn or strained too much, sprains may occur. Ligaments connect bones, and therefore strains and sprains normally occur in the joints. Ankle and wrist strains are the most common sprains. We offer rehabilitation and cold laser therapy to help with strains.
When you’ve got swollen muscles, a tough membrane known as fascia tightens up. This puts pressure on the blood vessels and nerves, causing muscle pain. We offer massage therapy, exercises, and cold laser therapy to alleviate sore muscles. Massage therapy can improve blood flow and reduce inflammation.
This condition is generally characterized by pain along the tibia or shin-bone. Shin splints are often experienced by runners. They usually occur when a runner fails to stretch or warm-up. They may also happen if you have unsupportive shoes or flat feet. Our chiropractor offers rehabilitation exercises and physiotherapy to help with shin splints.
High-impact and contact sports may lead to dislocations, which occur when the bones that make a joint are separated. If a joint is dislocated, the athlete will experience intense pain. The joint must be put back in its original position, and you may need a sling till the swelling diminishes. We offer chiropractic adjustments and cold laser therapy to help with the pain.
