Sports activities we participate in for entertainment and team spirit. Sports activities provide us with physical exercise for our bodies, mental skills to aid our minds and release us from stress. Whether professional in nature or simply a quick game of tennis at the courts down the street from our house, sports activities offer tremendous benefits for everyone.
While engaging in these low or high energy activities we aren’t readily thinking of injuries we might incur during the sport itself, instead focusing on the enjoyment of the moment and the energy we expel while performing the sport.
When we do receive an injury from any form of sport, our first thought may be to work or walk it off unless it is severe and debilitating, such as a broken bone. We might ice it and sit down for a moment while assessing how our body really feels. Unless we receive a definite red light form our body that we can’t, under any circumstances, use that sore wrist anymore to finish the tennis match.
Chiropractic care from a Pompano Beach sports chiropractor is an effective means for treating sports injuries of this nature, big or small. From the onset, once the evaluation has been made by a sports chiropractor or a hospital, chiropractic care can aid in the speedy recovery of the area of injury.
Using cold and hot therapy which is what you might already be doing at home as well as the TENS machine, laser therapies and manipulation of adjustments and possibly some physical therapy can have you back to normal in a quicker time frame. The MLS laser is a recent addition to the Pompano Beach sports chiropractic treatments for sports injuries.
Designed to work in conjunction with conventional medicine, the multiple treatments a sports chiropractor offers to a client can potentially prevent these types of injuries from becoming long-lasting and chronic in nature.
If you have a sports injury that hasn’t happened recently, this type of injury can still be treated effectively through Pompano Beach chiropractic care. Depending on how long you have had the injury will determine how much can be done to prevent it from being chronic in nature.
Chiropractic care for treating a sports injury is another link in the chain of aiding your body in recovery. After or during rest, ice, compression and elevating the injured area can speed recovery, getting you back in the game again enjoying life and all that it has to offer you. That should be reason enough to visit a sports chiropractor after a sports injury.
