Engaging in a sports activity impacts your life and health. Unfortunately, it also increases the risk of facing an injury on the court or field. Depending on the severity of the injury, chiropractic care may offer solutions to help with recovery, healing and regaining your ability to play a sport without discomfort and pain. Let our Murfreesboro chiropractic team at Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic help!
Injuries from a sport depend on the specific type of sport. For example, a full-contact sport has a higher risk of serious injuries like broken or cracked bones, ACL tears and similar injuries. Non-contact sports like tennis or track and field have a risk of sprained or strained ankles, injuries from repetitive motions or injuries to the tendons.
Depending on the specific injury, a treatment plan at Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic focuses on encouraging the natural healing processes. We use chiropractic care and physical therapy to encourage your body to heal without using harsh strategies and medications.
The way a chiropractor encourages healing after a sports injury is through adjustments and decompression therapy. At our clinic, we use spinal and neck adjustments to help with herniated discs, pressure on the nerves in the spine or related injuries. We also use decompression therapy to reduce the amount of pressure on specific points in the body.
For injuries to other locations, like the knees or ankles, we use appropriate tools based on the type of injury. For example, we may use hot and cold therapy to help reduce swelling in a sprained ankle or we may use adjustments and gentle movements to help reduce pain from injuries to the knees, elbows or shoulders.
We always use an x-ray to determine the severity of your injuries and we may recommend medical treatment in certain situations. For example, if we notice a cracked or broken bone on an x-ray, then we may recommend a cast. After the bone heals, we then offer physical therapy to rebuild and improve your physical function. We develop a personalized plan of action based on your injuries.
