Sports Injury FAQ

Whether it’s a strained back, pulled muscle, or sore joints, the experts at Woodgrove Pines Clinic can help you get back on your feet. We use modern techniques to relieve your pain quickly and efficiently
What are some common sports-related injuries?
Broken bones and muscle strains are the most common sports-related injuries. Some other related injures include compressed nerves, soft tissue injuries, and inflamed joints.
How can a chiropractor help me recover from a sports-related back injury?
It all depends on the severity of the injury. For a strained back muscle, a chiropractor can perform chiropractic adjustments to relieve the tension and stress on your back. Back pain can also be caused by an injury to another part of your body, so make sure to tell your chiropractor about any other pain.
Can I just ice my injury?
While icing your injury is great for reducing inflammation and swelling, your injury may still require chiropractic treatment. After icing your injury, if your pain and swelling don’t go away after a few days, schedule an appointment with a chiropractor so we can evaluate the severity of the injury.
Can I recover from an injury after only one treatment?
While it’s possible, most injuries, such as pulled or strained muscles, compressed nerves, and sprained ankles take time to recover from and may require multiple adjustments for you to return to normal. We can speed up the recovery of your injured joints by stabilizing the area.
What can I do to prevent sports-related injuries?
It’s very important that you stretch properly before a game. Improper stretching can lead to pulled muscles and stiff joints which may result in a severe injury. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids as dehydration can lead to cramps and muscle spasms. Severe headaches brought on by dehydration can cause loss of focus, which can cause you to fall and injure yourself. Warm-up exercises before a game are important as well so your body can be ready when it’s game time.
