Sports Injury Treatment and Prevention at Back to Health Wellness Center
Whatever sport you participate in, at whatever level of competition, you always want to win or at least do your best. Unfortunately, sports injuries can happen at any time to anyone. Sports injuries can take many forms, afflict many parts of the body, and cause a variety of unpleasant and/or debilitating symptoms. The good news is that you have an ally in your quest to return to your chosen sport. The techniques we use at Back to Health Wellness Center can help you recover from your sports injury, and even help you avoid future injuries.
How Sports Injuries Put You on the Bench
Some high-impact sports are about as kind to your musculoskeletal system as a car crash. A football tackle, skiing spill, or other traumatic incident can knock your joints out of alignment, rupture your spinal discs, and cause acute nerve impingement that affects your arms or legs.
Even a relatively sedate sport can cause sports injuries of a more chronic nature. These problems take the form of overuse injuries, the result of repetitive motions that stress the muscles and joints. Golf and tennis players, for instance, frequently suffer from tendon inflammations, such as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow. Any sport that requires a firm grip can induce carpal tunnel syndrome, in which swollen tissues pinch a major nerve serving the hand. Runners may suffer from runner's knee, a chronic kneecap instability also known as patellofemoral syndrome.
A pre-existing musculoskeletal issue may make you especially prone to sports injuries. Even a slight abnormality in your stance, gait, or posture can add stresses and strains to your muscles, joints, and connective tissues.
