No matter what sport you play, you can be brought down by a bad injury. A fast recovery is important so you can get back on the field as soon as possible. While many doctors prescribe medications to treat the pain, going to a chiropractor can treat the pain and injury naturally and effectively. At Allegheny Physical Medicine, in Bethel Park, PA, your recovery is our priority.
Muscle strains are the most common sports injury and can be easily treated with proper chiropractic care. Your chiropractor can do specific back and neck adjustments and massages to relieve the tension on the affected muscle without using any drugs. Your chiropractor can also teach you specific stretches to avoid any pulled or strained muscles in the future. Stretching is incredibly important when trying to avoid injuries. Simple stretches daily before a game or practice will greatly reduce the chance of injury.
A sprained joint can be very painful, and your first idea may be to rush to a doctor to get painkillers. While painkillers reduce pain, they don’t heal the injury and can cause nasty side effects. Your chiropractor will massage the area to relieve swelling and pain in the area as well as do small adjustments to release anti-inflammatory hormones that will speed up recovery. Depending on the severity, it may take more than one chiropractic treatment to help heal and get back to a tip-top shape. Pain in the knees can be especially painful, so it’s always good to focus on your most vulnerable joints.
Back injuries are very common for people who play golf and baseball. The violent swinging can easily cause you to throw out your back or pull a muscle. Your chiropractor can teach you the proper posture to relieve strains and prevent worse injuries. Besides performing specific adjustments tailored to your injury, your chiropractor can also use ultrasound technology to relieve pressure and tension.
