Training too vigorously or improperly can put strain on your muscles and joints, leading to sports injuries. You may see a sports physical therapist to recover from your injury, but chiropractors can actually offer significant pain relief as part of your recovery process, delivering greater mobility to the spine. If you suffer from back pain, shoulder and neck pain, or knee pain due to sports injuries, Callahan Chiropractic in York, NE, can help you find natural, lasting pain relief with their chiropractic services.
Chiropractors can assess and evaluate your sports injury and devise a holistic approach to relieving pain and helping the body heal. These methods may include spinal manipulation, electrotherapy, massage therapy, exercises, and stretches to treat misalignment throughout the body.
Instead of focusing on the local site of the pain, Chiropractors are trained to understand the entire musculoskeletal system and the way movements can affect different parts of the body. For instance, if you have knee pain, it may be caused by the way you run because of a spinal misalignment. By treating the cause of the misalignment, you are eliminating the source of the knee pain.
Creating better alignment in the body can also help prevent future injuries by helping the body to function optimally and decrease strain. Your chiropractor may also recommend back strengthening and core strengthening, which will help prevent back injury and improve your overall athletic performance.
Sports injuries are common, but can be treated and prevented by visiting a chiropractor who understands the role of biomechanics in pain management and prevention. By seeing a chiropractor as part of your sports rehabilitation, you’re healing your injury and taking care of your entire body. For back pain, spinal pain, and more due to sports injuries, call Callahan Chiropractic in York, NE, at (402) 362-3251.
