Struggling With a Sports Injury? Chiropractic Care Can Help
Many of us pursue athletic activities with varying degrees of intensity, from the occasional weekend jog to serious professional training and competition. But no matter how much work you put in your favorite sport, a sports injury can put you on the bench, not just in your chosen event but in the everyday game of life. Let’s examine some common types of sports injuries and methods for overcoming them the natural way through the services offered at Allied Physical Medicine.
Sports Injury Treatment at Our Chiropractic Clinic in Lancaster
A sports injury may be either acute or chronic in nature. When you experience an acute injury such as a sprain, strain, joint dislocation or painfully herniated disc, you usually know it right away. High-impact sports are especially notorious for collisions and other dramatic events that can cause severe musculoskeletal alignment problems, pinched nerves, and soft tissue injuries. Another common type of sports injury is the overuse or repetitive motion injury. These injuries are associated with excessive stress on a particular joint or body part. Examples include:
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Runner’s knee
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff injuries and shoulder bursitis
Getting Back in Form Without Drugs or Surgery
Merely masking your symptoms with drugs can allow you to worsen your injury, while surgery can make recovery and rehabilitation even longer, more painful and more complicated. Our experienced Lancaster team can help you get back in form the safe, effective, natural way.
