Sports Injury Care at Lockport Chiropractic
Most athletes know all too well that pain and injuries are "all part of the game." A variety of musculoskeletal mishaps can plague athletes at all skill levels, from school sports to professional competition. fortunately, these injuries can be dealt with non-surgically -- and in many cases even prevented -- through the conservative health and wellness techniques offered at Lockport Chiropractic in Lockport, IL.
Sports Injuries Experienced at All Skill Levels
Sports injuries can be maddeningly easy to come by. You might expect high-impact sports such as foot ball and wrestling to cause acute sports injuries, and rightly so. Strong bumps or jolts to the body can cause spinal vertebrae and discs to lose their alignment, resulting in whiplash, sciatica, low back pain and other problems. Acute hyperextension can tear muscles or sprain ligaments, causing instant pain, swelling, and stiffness.
But more subtle sports injuries can also occur on a chronic basis due to overuse of one particular part of the body. For example, if you constantly swing a racket or club, the repetitive motion can create tiny tears of soft tissues, leading to the inflammation and pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder bursitis, tennis elbow or golfer's elbow. an untreated spinal misalignment could be throwing your body slightly off-balance, making you prone to injuries in your weight-bearing muscles and joints. These kinds of injuries can occur at any level of sports participation, especially in individuals who don't always look after their physical fitness.
