Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
Whether you partake in sports for fun or as a profession, a setback from an injury is the last thing you want. Whether minor or severe, any injury keeps you from the game you love. However, you don't have to let a sports injury control your life and prevent you from doing the activities you love. Chiropractic care can help naturally alleviate your pain or discomfort from a sports injury and prevent it from returning. At Dr. Ron Fried Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Rochester Hills, we offer the testing and care our patients need to get back to living healthy and pain-free lives after experiencing sports injuries.
Common Sports Injuries
Leg pain from a sports injury is common, especially when you're running on a court or field. Uneven surfaces are notorious for contributing to falls and other running accidents. We also see patients suffering from pain due to improper or awkward movement that causes strain or other injuries. Other parts of your body that are prone to sports injuries include the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and knees.
The more intense the activity is, the higher your chances are of experiencing an injury. Examples of sports that often cause injuries include football, tennis, swimming, baseball, golf, and running.
How We Can Help
Fortunately, we can treat various conditions at our practice, including hand pain, leg pain, back pain, golfer's elbow, and tennis elbow. First, we gather information about your particular condition. We will ask questions about the incident and your overall health. We ask about any previous injuries you had.
Our chiropractor will want to assess the affected area and your body as a whole for any swelling, bruising, or other signs of an injury. Often, you'll need to demonstrate your range of motion. In some cases, we may need to order imaging to diagnose the problem accurately.
Once we diagnose the problem, we may recommend natural pain relief methods, such as hot and cold therapy. Often, you'll go through an exercise therapy program to help relieve your pain and regain function and flexion in that body part. After your treatment, we can educate you on ways to prevent injuries in the future. Part of our treatment approach also consists of athletic performance enhancement. With athletic performance enhancement, we can improve your overall engagement on the field and ensure you are more resistant to a future injury.
