Sports Injury FAQs

Sports injuries are an unfortunate byproduct of playing sports. Fortunately, you can get help through chiropractic pain relief treatment. These FAQs compiled by our Nanaimo, BC chiropractor at Woodgrove Pines Clinic explain more about sports injuries and chiropractic sports injury treatment.

What types of injuries can chiropractic treat?

Chiropractic care can be used to treat all kinds of sports injuries dealing with your musculoskeletal system. This includes whiplash, neck, shoulder and back pain, herniated disc, muscle strains, torn ligaments, soft tissue injuries, golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, and more. After a thorough evaluation from our chiropractor, we’ll determine the best course of action for treatment of your sports injury.

What types of therapies are used to treat sports injuries?

At Woodgrove Pines Clinic, we use chiropractic techniques and other holistic therapies to reduce the pain and discomfort caused by sports injuries and help your body heal. Sports collisions can cause spinal bones and joints to shift out of alignment, causing pain, inflammation, and loss of mobility. Chiropractic adjustments are used to restore balance to your system. This reduces pain and helps your body heal.

Soft tissue massage helps circulate blood to your injury to promote quicker healing. It also relieves muscle tension, diminishes scar tissue, and improves flexibility. Kinesio tape is used to support joint stability so you can move about with less pain. Rehab exercises are used for strengthening your core and improving range of motion and mobility.

What tips can you provide for preventing sports injuries?

Although sports injuries can’t be prevented altogether, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of getting injured. Staying in shape will help reduce injuries as your body will be strong and supple when you’re ready to play. Warming up before playing increases flexibility to reduce risk of injury. If your sport calls for protective gear, be sure to use it to safeguard yourself from injury.
