What Is a Sports Injury?
A sports injury is any type of injury that is obtained during playing sports. However, you can also obtain a sports injury if you exercise regularly and practice solo sports. Some sports that can cause a sports injury include running, track and field, swimming, biking, skateboarding, and just about any other sport you can think of.
Unfortunately, these sports can cause common sports injuries which may include:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Shin splints
- Achilles heel injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Little league shoulder
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Knee pain
- Lumbar pain
- Joint pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
Do I Need Sports Injury Treatment?
If you do have a sports injury, it's helpful to see a chiropractor to find out exactly how bad it is so you can begin the process of recovery as soon as possible. If you choose to ignore your injury and continue to play without treatment, your recovery time will increase significantly. In addition, the risk of re-injury to the torn soft tissues increases, making it difficult to fully heal from your injury and play sports effectively.
If your sports injury leads to acute pain or chronic pain that doesn't seem to get better, even if you practice resting, icing, elevating, and compressing the injury, you should contact our chiropractor for help.
