Mooresville chiropractor helps with sports injuries.jpgAn injury of any kind is disruptive, but sports injuries often mean that you cannot play or participate in sports and other physical activities without experiencing pain or difficulty performing. Fortunately, chiropractic treatment can be useful for rehabilitating a sports injury, as well as for manage back and neck pain associated with them. Common sports injuries may include: 

Whiplash - Although it is often associated with car accident injuries, athletes can suffer from whiplash as a result of a forceful impact that causes the upper spine to thrust forward or backward abruptly. The result is often neck pain, stiff muscles and even headaches. Visits to a Mooresville chiropractor can slowly relieve subluxations in the neck, reducing pressure on herniated discs and nerves in the upper spine.

Tennis Elbow - Repetitive and forceful motions involving the wrist can lead to inflammation in the tendons and ligaments surrounding the forearms and outer elbow. Known as tennis elbow, the condition can be very painful if not resolved by a chiropractor. By applying hot and cold therapy, as well as using massage and physical therapy, tennis elbow pain can be resolved in a relatively short period of time. If you visit a Mooresville chiropractor in our office for tennis elbow, we may examine your upper back and neck for subluxations that could be causing the condition to recur. With regular adjustments, we may be able to prevent tennis elbow from recurring in the future.

Misalignment - Many athletes suffer from misalignments throughout the musculoskeletal system that are caused by constant pressure and repetitive motions involving the muscles, bones and nerves. A simple misalignment may show few signs and symptoms at first, but may progress over time, causing back pain and limited motion range. Our chiropractors can diagnose and treat minor subluxations before they become a problem, which reduces the chances of future activity-related back pain and injuries.

Have you ever suffered from a sports injury? Did you seek help from a chiropractor to treat your condition or try to let it subside on its own?
