How Can Chiropractic Care Help After A Sports Injury? Answers From Your Phoenix AZ Chiropractor

Chiropractic Phoenix AZ Health Blog

Physical activity is one of the pillars of health, and sports of all kinds are a great option for people looking to stay active. But whether you play on a competitive travel team or simply play pick-up games on the weekends in Phoenix AZ, sports injuries can happen.

Common Sports Injuries Seen By Your Chiropractor In Phoenix AZ

Some of the most common sports injury in Phoenix we see include:

  • Runner's knee (patellofemoral pain syndrome)
  • Back pain
  • Knee or ankle ligament sprain
  • Muscle strain or tear (especially in the rotator cuff, quadriceps, or hamstring)

Treating Sports Injuries In Every Stage Of Recovery

A sports injury requires different treatment throughout different stages of recovery, and our Phoenix AZ chiropractor team is here to help every step of the way using drug-free and non-surgical chiropractic care techniques.

  • In the early stage, we focus on tissue healing, pain reduction, and anti-inflammation.
  • In the later (subacute) stage, we focus on improving your joint mobility and spinal alignment, reducing and minimizing scar tissue, and slowly re-introducing sports-specific movement.
  • In the latest (beyond injury) stage, we focus on maximizing the strength, endurance, and flexibility of important muscles and preventing recurrence or chronic problems.

Depending on the type of injury and stage of recovery you're in, we'll utilize a variety of chiropractic care techniques to help guide your body back to health. Specific treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue mobilization, corrective exercises, postural/neuromuscular re-training, and nutritional guidance. Even if you've never been injured, or if you've just started exercising, visit our Phoenix AZ chiropractor for an injury prevention consultation. Our team can examine and re-train your neuromuscular system, spinal alignment, posture, and core strength to ensure that your body is prepared to meet the demands of sport.
