Sports Injury Treatment
From high school football to a game of pickup basketball, partaking in sports helps keep your body in shape. It improves your mental mood as well. However, despite the many benefits associated with sports, you do open yourself up to a variety of sports-related injuries. Not all injuries are confined to just broken bones and concussions though. In fact, the majority of injuries won't be detected by your primary healthcare physician.
Many sports-related injuries may occur when the joints become compressed. While not broken, a compressed joint can become incredibly painful. It also may lead to the development of secondary injuries, such as pulled muscles and tendons. Your body is a well-oiled machine so to speak and, as such, needs to be maintained. That is why if you have experienced any level of discomfort or have suffered a sports injury in Fremont or the surrounding communities, you need to schedule a visit with Dalton Chiropractic.
Sports Injuries Can Occur In Any Sport
You might be surprised as to the kind of sports injuries that occur. Injuries during contact sports like football and hockey are common. However, soccer sees its share of sports injuries, especially with the amount of whiplash an individual can sustain while whipping their head toward the ball.
Baseball and softball are other sports where injuries can occur. For catchers, improperly catching a ball can lead to jammed fingers and wrists. It can also occur when diving for a base and the hand slams up against the padded base. A hard foul in basketball might lead to an injury, and even gymnastics can lead to injuries (especially when landing wrong or hitting the equipment).
The Importance Of Fixing The Compressed Injury
It isn't always joint compression that is the main source of the pain. Instead, when the bones are compressed together it causes your muscles to get pulled out of place. This will then increase the chance of muscle strain, tear, or problems with your tendons. You should try to avoid this, which is why it is so important to seek out the help of a chiropractor.
