Sports and exercise are great ways to keep fit and stay active, but there are often risks involved. Usually, excessive training, inappropriate training methods, or perilous exercise equipment can be a cause of sports injury, but structural abnormalities and muscle imbalances/weakness can also be culprits leading to injury, including the ankles, knees, elbows, shoulder, or spine.
Chiropractors are professionals trained to diagnose, access, and manage sports-related injuries as part of their core competencies. In fact, through a comprehensive history and physical examination, chiropractors can help determine the cause of pain and dysfunction as well as recommend an appropriate management and treatment plan.
Here are three benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment in preventing Sports Injuries:
1- Detecting Muscle Imbalances:
When you’re imbalanced, your body distributes physical pressure across your body. Which causes breaks, sprains, bruises, and sometimes worst injuries.
In situations like this, Chiropractors can tell when certain areas are too tight or tense. Which indicates a muscle imbalance. Those imbalances need adjustments. And once made, each muscle will be able to operate as it should and this will prevent Sports Injury.
2 Preventing Spinal Misalignment:
When muscles are overworked and grow, tension builds up between the bones. Common areas where tension builds is the pelvis. The spine ends at the pelvis. If the pelvis is not in alignment, “wear, tear, and … strain” is put on different parts of the body. Chiropractors are medical professionals that specialize in both the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, including the spine.
Spinal Manipulation or Adjustment is one of the most common and effective Chiropractic treatments for sports injuries. They will have you lie down, and then physically adjust your joints and tissues to reduce pain and inflammation. They may also use a hand-held device called an activator.
You are most likely to notice improvements in your spine alignment after undergoing chiropractic adjustments at regular intervals over a long period of time.
3- Ensures Better Health:
Factors like Over-training, ineffective warm-up, and forceful impacts are part of the reasons why Athletes suffer from Sports Injury. Chiropractors reduce the pain from these injuries by manipulating the spine to promote quick recovery.
Chiropractic treatment is as important as a cast or physical therapy. After all, making sure your body heals will help you avoid later injuries.
Sports Injury prevention is key. Before starting a new exercise program or sport, visit your chiropractor to determine what measures can be taken to prevent injury and enhance performance.
