The sports and activities that we participate in to keep us healthy can, unfortunately, lead to injury in some instances. Participating in sports exerts tremendous stress on the joints and spine.
Chiropractic care for sports injuries can assist you in rehabbing your injury, regaining strength, and avoiding any sign of injury recurrence.
Sports injuries can sideline you from the game you love and keep you from the activities that you enjoy. If an injury isn’t treated properly and healed, you may overcompensate and risk further injury. If you’ve experienced an injury, it’s important to take it seriously and address the issues as quickly as possible so that you don’t aggravate an injury beyond simple repair. We want to help you get back to your sport as quickly as possible, without risking any long-term issues.
If you have experienced a recent sports injury, make sure to call Cornerstone now to see how we can help!
A chiropractor addresses restrictions in the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. They will correct these restrictions in different areas of the body by aligning joints to improve healing, circulation, and range of motion, to restore health and function. Treatment for a sports injury provided by a licensed chiropractor can not only help the athlete recover faster, but can also improve their overall athletic performance.
An athlete’s body faces many physical challenges, especially during training season. These activities can result in strains, sprains, and tears. An injury will often occur when an athlete is new to the sport, overtrains, or doesn’t use the right safety equipment.
While participating in sports can help maintain a person’s health and fitness, injuries are extremely common. Some common symptoms due to sports injuries include:
Speed, balance, strength, and range of motion can all impact an athlete’s performance. An injury can negatively impact all of these factors, permanently or temporarily.
Chiropractic treatment targets joints, providing adjustments that will align each joint of the body. By addressing misaligned joints, range of motion, flexibility, and circulation are improved.
Chiropractic care uses a whole-body philosophy, recognizing that the joints in the human body don’t exist in isolation, and an injury to one joint can impact neighboring joints. This is often true of the lower limb and spinal injuries, as a knee injury can affect the hip and feet as well, due to compensation patterns following the injury.
When it comes to a sports injury, at Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, our chiropractors are specially trained to assess, identify, and manage these injuries, working closely with a patient to create a treatment plan that will help them recover faster and meet their wellness goals. During your first appointment at Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, your chiropractor will assess your current and past medical history and will conduct an exam that may include X-rays.
Your chiropractor will also go over your regular physical routine, address any concerns you may have, and review your goals. If you’re dealing with a decrease in range of motion, a sprain, strain, or severe pain, your chiropractor will be able to identify blockages, misalignments, or injuries that are responsible for your symptoms.
Based on the results of the initial evaluation, the doctor will go over treatment recommendations. The technique we use is gentle and non-invasive, which makes it a great fit for a wide range of patients. There is no twisting, cracking or jerking of the spine. Our technique allows us to provide scientific and specific adjustments to address your injury for long-lasting results!
We also incorporate rehabilitative stretches and strengthening exercises to address any muscular imbalances throughout the body. Our goal is to help our patients achieve optimal results as quickly as possible.
Based on your injury, your chiropractor will create a recovery plan that will encourage you to schedule regular visits for long-term prevention. Regular treatment can help correct any misalignments that can increase your risk of certain injuries, will reduce inflammation and pain, and increase your flexibility and range of motion. Long-term treatment will not only help lower your risk of an injury, but it can also improve your athletic performance.
If you choose to stay physically active, injuries are bound to happen, but don’t let that discourage you from achieving your fitness goals. Just make sure that you seek regular chiropractic care. The treatment you receive at Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center can reduce your risk of future injuries and enhance your body’s natural healing process. If you suffered a sports injury, or you want to lower your risk of sustaining an injury in the future, contact us today at (605) 540-4004 to schedule an appointment, and let us help you achieve optimal health and wellness.Book an Appointment

Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.
