Sports Injury

What is Sports Injury?

Most people suffer from sports injuries because they over use their muscles and joints and don’t have the proper strength and your ability to sustain their chosen sport. Other people become injured from direct impact or when a force is applied to their body that the structure cannot sustain. Usually sports injuries include bruises, sprains, strains or joint injuries. Is important to be checked by a primary healthcare physician such as a Chiropractor to make sure that your injury will not have more severe consequences in the future.

There are two general types of sports injury, the first one being acute injury that has occurred recently, this would include things like ankle sprain, concussion, hamstring strain, groin strain, knees ligament injuries and stress fractures. Chronic or long-term injuries are more common in people with poor technique or particular changes in their body that don’t suit their particular sport very well.

The treatment of sports injury by our Chiropractors depends on what type of injury has occurred and the severity of that injury. We also need to determine why the injury occurred in the first place so that we can set up a management program to avoid injury in the future.

In order to prevent sporting injuries it is recommended that athletes perform a warm up routine, wear appropriate footwear (for their shoes to maintain grip), strap or tape joints that are susceptible to injury, maintain good overall fitness in the months where you are not playing sport, train and improve your endurance, maintain proper form and technique, be regularly checked by a health professional and perform gentle stretches and cool down after your sporting activity.

Our Chiropractors provide expert care for athletes, ensuring a speedy recovery and optimal performance

If you need any assistance with sporting injuries our Chiropractors are more than happy to help. We can provide reassurance, strategies and advice for you to take to back to your sporting club or physiotherapist to get you a better result.

Sports injuries are a common occurrence in the world of athletics, with athletes of all ages and skill levels suffering from them. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 8.6 million sportsrelated injuries occur each year in the United States. This number includes both amateur and professional athletes. The most common type of sports injury is a strain or sprain, accounting for nearly half of all sportsrelated injuries. Strains and sprains affect the muscles and ligaments, and are caused by overstretching or tearing.

Other common injuries include fractures, dislocations, and concussions. In terms of severity, the most serious type of sports injury is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the CDC, TBIs account for approximately 8.9% of all sportsrelated injuries and are most often caused by contact sports such as football, hockey, and boxing. TBIs can have longlasting and potentially lifethreatening consequences, including impaired thinking and difficulty with balance and coordination.

Prevention is key when it comes to avoiding sports injuries. The CDC recommends that athletes engage in regular stretching and warmup exercises before playing. Additionally, athletes should always wear the appropriate protective gear and ensure that their equipment is in good condition. By following these simple tips, athletes can reduce their risk of injury and help ensure that they remain safe and healthy while participating in their favorite sport.

I’m quite new to Innate Connection, but have received network chiropractic treatment at various stages of my life since I was a child. The team at Innate Connection have been wonderfully warm and welcoming. Dr Gretchen Balas has been providing wholistic support for my injury and it has been great to see that even after many years, my body still remembers how to move and breathe and gradually heal itself.
