Butler Chiropractic treats back pain, neck pain, headaches, arthritis and other musculoskeletal pain that may be caused by sports injuries. There are many types of sports injuries; some of the most common include strains and sprains, tendonitis and stress fractures.

Chiropractic Relief for Athletes and Sports Injuries

Strains and sprains may arise during sports such as: track, baseball, basketball, tennis and football. Twisting and overextension of a joint can lead to tears in the muscles which produce strains. Sprains are caused by mild to severe tears in your ligaments. Ankle and knee sprains are familiar sports injuries. They generally involve tears of one of more ligaments on the outside of the ankle and knee. Back sprains typically involve the intervertebral disc which is a ligament between the vertebrae in your spine that works as a “shock absorber.” When your ligament is torn it may result in bulging or herniated discs.

Tendinitis is a normal occurrence when you play sports with repetitive motions. Tendinitis in the shoulder is caused from your rotator cuff becoming inflamed. Tennis elbow is a form of tendinitis that occurs along the outside of the elbow from repetitively using it to hit the tennis ball. Golfing in another sport where the elbow can become inflamed and develop tendinitis.

Stress fractures take place when an abnormal amount of stress is placed on your bone. A runner who suddenly increases his distance without gradually progressing to a long distance may develop a stress fracture. Shin splints are microfractures in the shin bones which are a type of stress fracture.

Our chiropractor will design a unique rehabilitation program for your individual injury. Many sports related injuries cause the spinal column to slip out of alignment. Chiropractic adjustments help realign your spine and relieve stress from nerves and muscles in your neck and back. Physical therapy such as electrical stimulation and cold therapies will help with injuries especially sprains and strains where inflammation transpires. 

Therapeutic exercises assist with building stamina and endurance while conditioning injured muscles, ligaments and tendons. Sports massage and acupuncture focuses on treating soft tissues injuries as well as aches and pains typically associated with recreational activities. Massage will improve relaxation by reducing your heart rate and reduce muscle stiffness to speed up the healing process.

Treating and eliminating pain whether it is from a sports injury or other source is our number one goal. We will work to relieve your back pain, neck pain, joint pain from arthritis and other muscular pain by utilizing chiropractic techniques, physical therapy, acupuncture and physiotherapy to get you on the road to full recovery.
