Sports Injury

No matter what sport you play, you can be brought down by a bad injury. A fast recovery is important so you can get back on the field/court as soon as possible. While many doctors prescribe medications to treat the pain, going to a chiropractor can treat the pain and injury naturally and effectively. At West Monroe Chiropractic Spine & Injury Center, your recovery is our priority.

Muscle Strains

Muscle strains are the most common sports injury and can be easily treated with proper chiropractic care. Your chiropractor can do specific back and neck adjustments as well as a variety of manual therapies to relieve the tension on the affected muscle without using any drugs. Your chiropractor can also teach you specific stretches and exercises to manage and prevent the risk of any pulled or strained muscles in the future. Flexibility and mobility is incredibly important when trying to avoid injuries. Simple stretches daily and warming muscles up before a game or practice will greatly reduce the chance of injury.

Sprained Joints/Ankles

A sprained joint can be very painful, and your first idea may be to rush to a doctor to get painkillers. While painkillers reduce pain, they don’t heal the injury and can cause nasty side effects. Your chiropractor will treat the mechanical issues of the affected area to relieve swelling and pain as well as to release anti-inflammatory hormones that will speed up recovery. Depending on the severity, it may take more than one chiropractic treatment to help heal and repair the affected ligaments and get you back to a tip-top shape. Injuries in the knees are common and can be especially painful. It’s always good to have a trauma trained chiropractor triage and evaluate your most vulnerable joints to make sure you receive the most appropriate care for your injury.  

Back Strain

Back injuries are very common for people who play golf and baseball. The violent swinging can easily cause you to throw out your back or pull a muscle. Your chiropractor can teach you the proper posture to relieve strains and prevent worse injuries. Besides performing specific adjustments tailored to your injury, your trauma trained chiropractor can also use a wide variety of treatments and therapy technology to relieve pressure and tension and speed up your recovery.
