Can a chiropractor help tackle sports injuries?

We all know that chiropractic treatments can help with back pain, migraines and neck pain, but their effects are often extended to treating sports injuries. In this blog post, we look at how chiropractic treatments can help tackle some of the symptoms commonly associated with sports injuries.

What is a sports injury?

Your body is just as prone to sports injuries as that of a professional athlete. Although pain may be caused when a hamstring is pulled when running or going in for a tackle whilst playing football, it often has a longer-term cause. Some injuries reveal undetected spinal conditions, for example, that have gone undetected for years. Common sports injuries that reveal such issues typically include – but aren’t limited to:

- Hamstring strains

- Achilles tendon injuries

- Golfers (or tennis) elbow

- Groin sprains

- Calf strains

- Sciatica

- Tendonitis

- Thigh sprains

If any of the above injuries are affecting your day to day, it’s worth booking in with a Melville Wellness chiropractor.

How can we help?

At Melville, our professional chiropractors can offer a range of treatment types to help prevent pain by:

Reducing inflammation

Some sports injuries lead to an inflammation of the muscles. To tackle this, chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments can help. This is because our professionals are trained to examine whether or not you have misaligned vertebrae. It’s important to determine this if suffering from inflamed pain as the vertebrae often provoke feelings of pain by causing nerve pressure, which blocks the flow of nutrients. The treatments can help to realign the vertebrae.

Providing manual muscle therapy

A hamstring strain is one of the most common types of sports injuries. To correct the pain caused by this, a chiropractor often uses manual muscle therapy. This involves a kneading type of massage that targets the hamstring. It can help to relieve feelings of pain as it can improve circulation around the body whilst also correcting any instances of structural imbalance.
