Sports Injuries

There are many sports injuries that people suffer from. While some of these injuries may be more severe than others, they all can sideline athletes and prevent them from performing at their best. We at Sorell-Iversen Chiropractic Clinic serving Manhattan, KS, offer services to help with a wide variety of injuries, including extremity adjustments. Here are some of the most common sports injuries and how our chiropractic care can help.

Sports Injuries

Knee Pain

One of the most common injuries that people experience is knee pain. This can be caused by various things, including overuse, poor form, and lack of stretching. Knee pain can make it challenging to participate in activities and may even require you to take time off from your sport. Chiropractic care can help reduce pain in the knee by providing joint and muscle support. This can help you stay active and pain-free.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is another common injury, especially among people participating in overhead activities such as baseball or tennis. A leading cause of this pain is instability in the joint. This can be caused by repetitive motions or trauma to the area. To treat shoulder pain, our chiropractors may use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and extremity adjustments. This can help reduce pain and restore the normal range of motion. Also, we can focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles around the shoulder joint.

Back Pain

As anyone who has suffered from back pain can attest, it can make even the simplest daily activities difficult. Back pain is often caused by muscle imbalances or poor posture. It can also be the result of an injury or overuse. This pain can be difficult to treat on your own, but chiropractic care can help. A chiropractic professional on our team will focus on realigning the spine and providing support to the muscles and ligaments. This can help reduce pain and improve your overall function.

Neck Pain

With all the stress we put on our necks every day, it’s no wonder that many people suffer from neck pain. Poor posture, sitting at a desk all day, and carrying heavy bags can all lead to neck pain. Chiropractic care can help relieve neck pain by providing support and alignment to the neck and spine. In addition, exercises and stretches that focus on the neck and shoulders can help prevent future pain. Regular chiropractic adjustments can also help to improve your posture and reduce the risk of injury.

Muscle Pain

Muscle pain can be frustrating whether you’re dealing with a pulled muscle or just general soreness. It is often caused by overuse, poor form, or lack of stretching. To treat muscle pain, focusing on the muscles and the nervous system is important. Chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. In addition, exercises that stretch and strengthen your muscles may assist you in avoiding future injuries.
