Summer means getting outside, enjoying the warm temperatures and participating in all kinds of outdoor and indoor activities, including playing sports. Unfortunately, if you are improperly conditioned, take a hard fall or accidentally overwork yourself, you could experience a sports injury.
Common Sports Injuries in Boca Raton
Here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center in Boca Raton, we treat acute and chronic sports injuries, including back pain, muscle spasms, tennis elbow and runner’s knee. We also treat all types of sprains and strains as well as tendonitis.
Sprains and strains tend to be sudden injuries. The pain is instant and swelling, bruising and loss of range of motion are immediately noticeable.
Tennis elbow, runner’s knee and tendonitis tend to be chronic injuries. The pain of these injuries worsens with time and is more pronounced when you use the injured part of your body.
Back pain can be sudden or occur over a period of time with worsening symptoms. If you experience any pain while participating in sports or other physical activities, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for a complete evaluation.
Sports Chiropractic Treatment with our Chiropractor
If you experience sudden pain while participating in sports or exercising, you should immediately stop the activity and apply ice to slow any swelling or bruising that might occur. You should not resume your activity until your pain has dissipated and range of motion has been restored. Our chiropractor can help facilitate the healing process by utilizing sports chiropractic care. These treatments are designed to reduce pain and inflammation while healing your injury and restoring your range of motion.
We offer chiropractic care and massage therapy to help heal all types of musculoskeletal sports injuries. Chiropractic care is used to heal injuries of the joints and soft tissues by restoring range of motion and reducing inflammation. Massage therapy helps promote total body healing by increasing circulation, helping the muscle release lactic acid and by relaxing your body and mind, which reduces the levels of stress hormones in your body.
