Sports Medicine Q & A

What Causes Sports Injuries?

Sports injuries can be roughly divided into two types: those that occur as a result of a direct impact or direct contact with another object including another player; and injuries that occur from indirect forces, such as overuse or repetitive use injuries. Because sports and other strenuous physical activities subject the musculoskeletal and nervous system to high levels of stress, injuries can involve different structures and tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. To be successful, treatment of sports injuries must focus on all these effects while also helping the athlete return to their sport and avoid similar injuries in the future. Sports medicine is a special area of medicine devoted to the special needs of athletes of all levels, from amateur athletes to professionals. Chiropractors who specialize in sports medicine treat injuries arising from sports as well as other types of injuries like car accidents that could have an effect on an athlete’s ability to perform their sport.

What Are Some of the Most Common Causes of Sports Injuries?

Sports injuries often affect joints like the knees, hips, and shoulders, as well as soft tissues and nerves. Twisting and pivoting motions are some of the most common causes of sports injuries, often involving the back or neck. Repetitive motion injuries are common in the knees and elbows. Many injuries cause inflammation and irritation that can interfere with normal circulation and impede healing. All these issues must be addressed in order for healing to occur as quickly and completely as possible.

How Does a Chiropractor Treat Sports Injuries?

Chiropractors use a holistic approach in treating sports injuries and other injuries occurring in athletes to help promote natural healing and restore tissue health. At Dynamic Integrative Health, the doctors and staff begin with a complete assessment of the patient to determine the underlying causes of injury as well as the overall effects to establish a customized plan of care based on each person’s individual needs. In addition to treating the injury itself, chiropractors can also provide important guidance to help athletes stay healthy and avoid future injuries, as well as to help them achieve peak performance levels.
