Common Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can come in all different shapes and sizes, but take a look at the most common ones out there:
Sprains and Strains
Most of us have had a ligament sprain or muscle strain before. Whether you moved the affected part of the body the wrong way, such as twisting your ankle while playing soccer, lifted something too heavy at the gym, or whiplash from an auto accident, these injuries are extremely common. The joints and muscles are a very complex part of the body, and they can be moved in a lot of ways they shouldn’t. If you’re experiencing pain from a sprain or strain, our Chiropractors can help.
Sciatica is a condition where pain can extend from the lower back down the leg to your feet. Numbness, burning, and tingling are feelings that are also associated with this condition. Sciatica is most common for cyclists, golfers, tennis players, and those who are constantly rotating their bodies. It can by caused by a lumbar spine disc injury, spinal subluxation or pinched nerve. For effective treatment for sciatica, many people turn to a Chiropractor for help.
