If you’re an athlete, you want to play your sport at the top of your game. Injuries can leave you needing anything from rest and ice/heat to surgery and rehabilitation. Some of the most common sports injuries include a strained hip flexor, an ACL tear, a groin injury, sciatica, and knee injuries.
If you play tennis, basketball, football, soccer, or another sport, you’re more likely than someone who doesn’t play sports to sustain damage to your body. Take a moment to explore why athletes can benefit so greatly from regular chiropractic care.
Aids healing after an injury Chiropractic care improves blood flow to injured muscles, ligaments, and tendons so more oxygen and other nutrients reach the site of the injury. Chiropractic care also helps tight muscles and tendons relax.
If you have an injury that affects your spine, the vertebrae may compress against each other, causing a disc to rupture, leaving a herniated disc and/or sciatica.
Spinal manipulation, performed either with gentle movement of your Modern Concepts chiropractor’s hands or using a medical device, relieves pressure on the spinal nerve by creating space between discs that have been abnormally compressed.
If your injury results in a herniated disc, your chiropractor uses a machine that opens up the space between the discs.
Relieves pain caused by strenuous athletic activityAthletes play to win. Whether it’s an intramural game, a neighborhood team, or a national competition, you play competitively, and it’s hard on your body. Playing sports, especially at a competitive level, engages your body in rapid twists, turns, and bends that often strains muscles, tendons, and ligaments beyond their normal range.
When they’re strained and overworked, your muscles may tighten up and become shorter, causing pain. When you try to exercise, these muscles can’t extend properly, increasing your risk for more muscle damage and joint pain. Ultrasound and massage loosen tight muscles and help them extend properly as you move, relieving your pain.
All of the twisting and turning can also move your spine out of alignment. Proper spinal alignment is critical to your health. Your body frame has a perfect alignment, and your spine is central to that alignment.
Sports moves and injuries can knock your spine out of alignment, causing back pain as well as pain in your extremities. You may have hip and leg pain from irritated nerves that can result in muscle spasms.
You don’t have to live with chronic back pain or other musculoskeletal pain. Your Modern Concepts chiropractor uses the most advanced spinal manipulation techniques to move your spine into proper alignment.
Your chiropractor will examine your posture and structure, ligaments, joints, and more, gathering useful information for prescribing treatment.
Helps prevent injury Your Modern Concepts chiropractor ensures that your body mechanics are working properly so every part of your body is in structural alignment. Improving your posture as well as regular stretching and proper exercise can improve your coordination and balance, helping to ward off injury.
Helps heal you without relying on drugs Many Americans have been scarred by the opioid epidemic, which has been fueled by the overprescription of strong, habit-forming drugs. Athletes and other patients are seeking drug-free treatment alternatives.
Chiropractic care helps your body heal without drugs. Restoring proper body mechanics helps repair damaged tissue in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments without drugs, and may help you avoid painful surgery.

I find it amazing to learn that having your spine realigned regularly can help in providing relief for back pain along with helping you loosen your tight muscles. My brother is planning on joining a track and field team next year. I should probably suggest that he visit one of these experts from time to time.

Our bodies withstand a tremendous amount of stress! From the first time we fall off a slide as a child, to auto accidents, and yes...SPORTS, our ligaments progressively lose their range of motion which can have long term implications after our a playing days are over.

I've been working out a lot, so I want to make sure that I take good care of my body. It make sense that I would want to visit a chiropractor every once in a while to ensure that I get the care I need. It's nice that they can help out with more than just your back.

I've been having issues with back pain after I work out. It makes sense that I could benefit from seeing a contractor! Improved blood flow and less back pain would make working out a lot easier.

Braden, you're absolutely right! Back pain can be cause by scar tissue (limited range of motion), disc degeneration (gradual wear and tear in the spine), nerve compression (swelling of the vertebral discs), and muscular tightness as they overcompensate for structural differences.

My uncle has been thinking about getting a chiropractor to help him with his lower back because he has been in a lot of pain. He would really like to get some help from a professional that can manipulate his spine in order to feel a lot better. It was interesting to learn about how they will be able to help his tight muscles relax which will improve the blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the areas..

Thanks for explaining that if an injury affects your spine, you could get a herniated disc. My friend was playing sports with a group of friends last week, and he has been complaining about back pain ever since. I think he might have done something to his spine, so I'll tell him to seek out chiropractic care.

One of my cousins started playing lacrosse recently and has started complaining about a sore back. Her parents are worried for her and were wondering if a chiropractor could help with her situation. Thanks for explaining that more oxygen can get to muscles, ligaments, and tendons with chiropractic care since it improves the blood flow. Maybe I can go online to help her find a chiropractor that is experienced working with people that play sports and exercise regularly to help my cousin get the best care for her situation.

You made an excellent point that it is important to see a chiropractor when we are athletes. It makes sense as they can help ensure that our joints are all aligned. I will definitely look for a trusted chiropractic care.

Keep that spine in line!

It's good to know that a chiropractor can help someone out who has a herniated disc. I figured only doctors could help out. But I am glad that is not the case and that there are other forms of treatment.

Seeing a chiropractor is something every athlete should do. Not only to heal injuries quickly but stop them from returning.

An athlete should see a chiropractor regularly. Because athletes put a lot of pressure on their bodies every time they train and physically intense activities can create problems.

Thank you very much! We're glad you appreciate the content. Best of luck to you in the future as well!
Thanks for helping me understand that a chiropractor would examine the posture and structure, ligaments, and more to prescribe the right treatment. With that in mind, I will see one now that I tripped a little while jogging earlier. I am not an athlete, but I definitely need this to prevent the issue from escalating if neglected.

It got me interested when you said that chiropractors help tight muscles and tendons relax. My husband and I want to relieve muscle pain caused by our work schedule. We are hoping to find a general chiropractor tomorrow morning who can improve our condition and relieve back and neck pain.
