What Causes Sports Injuries?
Some sports injuries are acute and the cause of the pain is clear. Other sports injuries develop over time, and it can be harder to figure out the root cause of the injury.
Acute injuries are often experienced by athletes who play contact sports. Concussions, sprains, strains, and issues with tendons and ligaments can all happen while playing sports. If you have chronic pain from an injury, it may be due to a pulled muscle, overuse, or even poor form.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective for sports injuries. When you visit us, we'll talk with you about your medical history and learn how the injury occurred. Then, our chiropractor will perform an examination and recommend a treatment plan.

Your care plan may consist of several therapeutic modalities, including chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage, myofascial release, and hot and cold therapy.
Our chiropractor may also teach you specific exercises to do at home between your appointments. These exercises can help strengthen your body and speed up the recovery process.
