Sports injuries are a common occurance in life. Accidents happen, a bad hit or twisted ankle can result in a serious sports injury. Most sports-related injuries involve the musculoskeletal system—the bones, muscles and other soft tissues we depend on to stand and move efficiently. Anyone is at risk for a sports-related injury at sometime during their life.

Chiropractic doctors are specialists in the musculoskeletal system. Children are at greatest risk for long-term complications from sports injuries. Bodies that are still developing are more vulnerable to sprains and bruises that may look minor from the outside. If your child is hurt during an athletic event, seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if it seems like "nothing." Seasoned athletes may suffer injuries from repetitive-motion injury or "overuse". Those who are just starting an exercise regimen may injure themselves by pushing to accomplish big improvements in a short amount of time.

The National Institutes of Health reports that the most common sports traumas are knee and rotator-cuff injuries, strains and sprains. Chiropractic care is effective for treating these types of injuries because they are all musculoskeletal problems. At Allegheny Physical Medicine, P.C., we help patient’s recover from injury, reduce pain and even prevent future trauma by using a variety of modalities such as spinal manipulation, acupuncture, and massage therapy.

Chiropractic care is so effective for treating and preventing sport-related injury, that most all NFL teams keep a chiropractor on staff to treat players, and more than 85% of NFL trainers have referred players to a chiropractor according to the National Institutes for Health.

At Allegheny Physical Medicine, every patient we see is just as important as a world-class athlete. Sports injuries can be serious for adults and children. If left untreated, they can cause chronic pain and decrease your athletic performance and enjoyment.
