Causes of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries fall into two categories—chronic and acute. A long-term chronic injury can be caused by improper or overuse form. Avoid playing through the pain, as it might lead to chronic injuries. An acute injury is due to an accident or incident that results in noticeable signs. For instance, a fall, tackle, collision, or slip can cause acute injuries.
Some accidents are apparent in sports, but others might be avoided by having the proper equipment and playing in safe conditions. For instance, avoid playing soccer on wet leaves as it might lead to slipping and falling.

Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
A sports chiropractor treats the root cause of the pain by providing a long-lasting, non-invasive solution and preventing the injury’s recurrence. We use some of the following natural treatments for sports injuries:
- Stretching exercises: We recommend chiropractic exercises to reduce pain, improve mobility, and strengthen core muscles.
- Laser therapy: It helps stimulate cellular activities that speed up recovery. The treatment is ideal for strains, sprains, plantar fasciitis, etc.
- Spinal manipulation: Your body can be out of balance if you experience misalignments in your spine. Spinal manipulation helps reposition the joints, which can support your body’s self-healing mechanism.
