Did you know that there are over 3.5 million sports-related injuries every year in the United States? That number might be even higher due to some injuries not being reported and many people simply choosing to live with chronic or acute pain caused by sports injuries.
At Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center, Dr. Duben and Dr. Erickson, along with the rest of their staff at Westlake Village, CA, want our community to get the help they need for sports injuries. Through sports rehabilitation, we can help you or a loved one improve your quality of life, naturally heal past sports injuries, and gain your strength so you can continue to do what you love out on the field or in the stadium. Through care from a chiropractor, you can feel relief from pain from sports injuries and gain your strength back after an injury.
What Are Some Common Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries can affect children, teens, and young adults any time, anywhere. These injuries can range from mild to moderate to severe and can occur due to an accident or simply from overuse over many years of playing sports.
Some common sports injuries include:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Ligament tears
- Little-league elbow
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Torn ACL
- Back pain
- Shin splints
These are just some of the many injuries that can occur due to sports, and it's important to understand just how serious they can be. Untreated sports injuries can lead to muscle fusion, loss of mobility, flexibility, and strength in the muscles, and a high chance of re-injury even if your injury looks or feels better.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Only a trained chiropractor can determine the extent of your sports injuries and then help create a treatment plan that works for you. Some other invasive treatments for sports injuries only mask the symptoms of pain without treating the injury itself.
A chiropractor can help aid you through sports rehabilitation and provide treatment including:
- Muscle stretches and exercises to improve flexibility and mobility
- Muscle massages to improve circulation and reduce inflammation
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Spinal adjustments
- Trigger point therapy
- Class IV Cold Laser
Through these treatments, you can speed up the recovery process from sports injuries and ensure you're at your best when going back into playing your favorite sport.
