What Is a Sports Injury?

Sports injuries can be almost any type of injury that occurs while a person is participating in athletics. Sports injuries normally involve injury to the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, this is an injury to the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

What Are Some Different Types of Sports Injuries?

The following are general types of sports injuries.

  • Chronic Injury - Chronic sports injuries are also referred to as overuse injuries. These happen because of wear and tear on certain areas of the body. Repetitive motions can cause injuries such as tennis elbow or shin splints.
  • Traumatic Injury - This type of injury occurs suddenly, usually from falling or getting hit. This could include a joint that becomes dislocated or even a broken bone.
  • Strains and Sprains - Sprains occur when ligaments are stretched too far or torn. Strains are injuries to the muscles and tendons. Strains and sprains might be acute or chronic.

How Are Sports Injuries Prevented?

One of the best ways to prevent a sports injury is to make sure you're correctly stretching your muscles before beginning any physical activity. Coaches, athletic trainers, and sports chiropractors all provide extensive advice for the best ways to warm up and cool down when participating in athletics. Wearing the appropriate safety gear and eating a nutritious diet can also help prevent injuries.

How Does a Sports Chiropractor Treat Injuries?

Chiropractic care offers non-invasive treatment without the use of drugs or surgery. There are several ways a sports chiropractor might treat an athletic injury. Chiropractic care often includes spinal adjustments. Other treatment options may involve different types of massage, soft tissue therapy, or laser therapy. Our chiropractor will complete a thorough evaluation before deciding on the best treatment options.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."
    Jennifer D.
  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless tha"
