Get Relief From Sports Injury Pain
Chiropractic treatment will keep a body in optimal condition, which can prevent injuries of the shoulders, back, ankles, hips, and neck. When the spine is aligned, this means the nervous system is working properly. Additionally, regular maintenance visits can keep an athlete in top form. But even with regular treatment, injuries can still happen.
Athletes commonly sustain repetitive injuries. For example, a runner who wears shoes that don’t provide adequate support may suffer from shin splints, or a golfer who repeatedly stresses the muscles in their forearms may develop tennis elbow.
At Deep Roots Chiropractic Health Center, our chiropractors will perform a full physical assessment to get to the underlying cause of your pain and construct a personal treatment plan that will have you back out there doing what you love and feeling your best.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Sports Injuries
Sports injuries are incredibly inconvenient for the athlete’s active lifestyle. At Deep Roots Chiropractic Health Center, our focus is on providing patients with the best care. We work closely with our patients to learn their medical history, assess their pain, and administer the correct therapies that can help them to overcome their injuries. If you sustained a sports injury, we will help you gain back the strength needed to help you return to the sport you love, better and stronger than ever.
Our goal is to relieve pain, enhance and restore joint function, resolve joint inflammation, and teach you how to prevent this type of injury in the future.
What to Expect at Your Chiropractic Appointment
Our chiropractors do not provide treatment or prescribe medication that will mask the symptoms of a sports injury. Instead, they’re trained to identify and treat the root cause.
At your first appointment with us, you’ll begin by filling out paperwork that will teach us about your medical history, current issues, pain level, and other health concerns. The next step is the physical assessment.
A chiropractor will perform a thorough exam of the area and your entire body to create a treatment plan that can speed up the healing process, eliminate your pain, and strengthen your body to prevent injuries in the future.
During your appointment, your chiropractor will use manipulation to restore joint mobility. This is done by manually applying force to restricted joints. This treatment can alleviate muscle tightness, muscle spasms, and pain, allowing injured tissues to heal.
Before you’re given the green light to participate in sports, you’ll need to see a chiropractor for a follow-up appointment. You will have another physical assessment to determine whether your injury healed properly and if you’re strong enough to participate in sports and other types of strenuous activities. Additionally, your chiropractor will want to continue to see you to keep your body in optimal playing condition and ensure you don’t take any unnecessary risks that can result in another injury.
