Sport Injury

Anyone that's physically active can benefit from chiropractic care, but chiropractic treatments can be especially helpful for people with sports injuries. Working with a chiropractor could potentially reduce your recovery time and may help you avoid long-term complications. If you need sports injury treatment, visit us at Universal Chiropractic P.C. in West Seneca, NY.


Common Sports Injuries

Being physically active can help you build muscle strength and increase flexibility, but it can also put stress on your body. Falls, muscle overuse, and physical blows can all lead to injury. Many types of sports injuries can be treated with chiropractic care, including:

  • Runner's knee
  • Meniscal tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer's elbow
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Slipped discs
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Shoulder instability
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sciatica 

Many injuries have similar symptoms, so it can be helpful to have your injury diagnosed by a chiropractor. Once a chiropractor on our team has identified and determined the extent of your injuries, we will be able to better help you recover. 

What to Do if You Have a Sports Injury

If you have a sports injury, seek treatment. In the meantime, you should avoid doing anything that could make your injury worse. It might be best to rest so that your body has the chance to recover. 

After you start treatment, a chiropractor on our chiropractic team may show you therapeutic stretches that can help you during your recovery. Make sure you follow the chiropractor's guidance when it comes to physical activity so that you don't jeopardize your recovery.

Sports Injury Treatment

When you visit a sports injury chiropractor on our team, you can receive care that's personalized to suit your needs. While you can get pain relief during your sessions, a main goal of chiropractic care is to promote health and wellness in the body. A chiropractor on our chiropractic team can provide treatments that can help you recover and alleviate the symptoms causing you discomfort. 

If you've been injured, you might have joints or vertebrae that are out of alignment. A chiropractor on our team can help correct these issues with manual adjustments. These adjustments can also be used to help treat joint restrictions, potentially helping you to regain any mobility that you've lost.  

Not only can a chiropractor on our team help you to heal and return to your favorite sports, but we can also reduce the risk of future injuries and improve your athletic performance. Poor balance and weak muscles can make you more prone to injury. Chiropractic care can help correct these issues and improve your well-being.
