When people participate in sporting and exercise activities, they place strenuous demands on their bodies, and they’re sometimes injured. Sports injuries commonly affect the neck, shoulders, back, knees and ankles. Not only do we treat these types of injuries at Twin Cities Chiropractic, but they can help prevent them too.
Hyperextension and Hyperflexion Injuries
With or without trauma, hyperextension and hyperflexion of joints and muscles results in painful injuries and significantly decreased mobility and performance. We’re trained to diagnose, evaluate and treat sports injuries. Common symptoms of these injuries can include:
- Headaches, neck and back pain
- Dull burning pain in the buttocks and legs
- Muscle pains and spasms
- Joint inflammation
By using our traditional chiropractic hands-on approach, we can determine the specific location of joint dysfunction and resulting pain, and then we can make our independent recommendations as to a treatment plan. Depending on the nature, mechanism, and extent of the injury, conservative traditional chiropractic care might consist of:
- Manipulation of joints
- Mobilization of joints
- Soft tissue therapy
- Personalized home exercises
- Lifestyle advise and recommendations
Patients benefit from traditional conservative chiropractic treatment by experiencing reduced inflammation and increased pain relief. Regular traditional chiropractic maintenance promotes a more rapid healing response to joint and muscle injuries as well as enhanced overall performance.
A chiropractor can also help you to prevent sports injuries. If it has been a while since you were on an exercise program or participated in a sport, you should probably be evaluated by Dr. Scot here at Twin Cities Chiropractic. We want your body to work naturally. Your muscles and spine can be evaluated for imbalances that might make you more prone to injury, and then we can tell you what measures you should take to reduce the chance of injury to those parts of the body. For your body as a whole, once traditional chiropractic care and maintenance have enhanced your range of motion, you should notice improved balance and increased mobility and coordination. You can expect your spine, nervous system and muscles to all work better for a maximum personal output with fewer injuries and faster recoveries.
