When it comes to treating sports injuries, chiropractic treatment can and should be a valuable part of the plan. Injuries are a part of sports, regardless of whether one is a professional athlete or a weekend warrior. Chiropractic can help get an injured athlete back on his or her feet again, ready for the next game. Many chiropractors are now choosing to specialize in this field of chiropractic and are accredited as sports chiropractors. Although they are called sports injuries, it does not always require a strenuous game of touch football to cause one. Simply twisting wrong while unloading the dishwasher or lifting a box at work can cause an overuse syndrome to occur, and one usually does not think about stretching or warming up prior to doing household chores.
Chiropractic adjustment realigns the spine and helps return the vertebrae to their normal range of motion, allowing the injured person to return to daily activity quicker. Many chiropractors also offer massage as part of their treatment protocol, a soothing option which also helps relieve stress. Chiropractic treatment can also help a patient avoid long-term treatment with pain killers, which can be hard on the liver and kidneys and, in some cases, quite addictive.
