Taking part in sports and recreational activities is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, injuries during sports are quite common, due to lack of proper equipment, lack of stretching or warming up before the activity, overuse of a body part, or acute trauma to a part of the body. Sports injuries can include bruises, muscle and ligament strains, sprains and tears, contusions, and fractures.
The chiropractic physician’s goals with all treatment are to reduce pain, restore normal joint function and improve muscle function. Chiropractic care helps the body to heal itself and prevent future injury.
