Athletes and those who participate in sports can be more vulnerable to injuries. While some sports can be more dangerous than others, any athlete is at risk for injury. Even athletes who don’t participate in sports like football and soccer can be injured. Runners, for example, can experience muscle and joint injuries. They can also fall and injure themselves on runs. People who participates in sports and athletic activities know they are at risk for injuries, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Problems with untreated injuries
Without proper treatment some injuries will linger for years
While some athletic and sports injuries can be treated at home, such as with extra rest and over-the-counter pain medication, other injuries need medical attention for treatment and proper healing. Even injuries that seem minor can cause long-term problems if left untreated. Some things that can happen if you don’t get proper treatment include:
- ongoing pain and discomfort
- worsening of symptoms
- long-term mobility complications
- more invasive treatments later on
Old injuries can also flare up as you age. That means if you had an injury you thought was minor that didn’t get treated properly, you may experience health problems and pain many years after you thought it was healed.
It may be that your sports injury is minor and can be treated at home. However, it’s best to have a health care professional evaluate the injury and make a recommendation for the best treatment plan.
Benefits of chiropractic care
Let Wolke Chiropractic create a custom care plan for you
Chiropractic care is a good way to get treatment for athletic and sports injuries. These types of injuries occur because of the movement of the body, and the injury prevents the body from working the way it is meant to. Chiropractic care uses knowledge of the spine and the way the body moves to restore healing and alignment for optimum spinal health.
Your chiropractic treatment will be tailored to your unique body and injury. Every spine is different, so it is necessary to ensure that the treatment you receive addresses your needs, especially as it relates to your injury. Other treatment methods are generally one-size-fits-all with minor adjustments. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, is personalized at every stage.
Along with helping you heal from your sports injury, chiropractic treatment can help promote overall good health. This can help you prevent further injuries in the future. Keeping your spine in good alignment will help keep your athletic movement properly aligned so you can be at your best.
You don’t have to avoid sports activities to avoid sports injuries. Instead, knowing the risks, especially of untreated injuries, can help you protect against them. If you do experience an injury, seeking chiropractic care early can help ensure you get the effective treatment you need to treat the injury and prevent further health problems in the future.
If you’ve experienced a sports injury or want to maximize your spinal health through chiropractic care to prevent future injuries, Wolke Chiropractic is here to help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to start getting you back to your best athletic health.
