Sports Injury Community Health and Wellness

No matter what sport you enjoy or your level of expertise, every time you hit the track, field, or court, you run the risk of sustaining a sports-related injury. These injuries can range from minor aches and scrapes to severe injuries like torn ligaments and broken bones. But no matter how minor an injury may seem, ignoring it is the worst thing you can do. 

Most athletes assume that their aches and pains will go away with rest and ice, but taking this approach can lead to serious complications. To keep an injury from worsening, it is important to seek help as soon as possible, and one of the best forms of sports injury treatment is chiropractic care.

Improve Your Game with Chiropractic Care

Perhaps you enjoy a lower impact sport like golf or bowling and think the likelihood of injury is relatively low. The truth is that all athletes are at risk of sports injuries. 

Professional golfers or even weekend golfing enthusiasts are prone to a myriad of back and elbow problems caused by the swinging motion or even lugging around your golf club on the green. Tennis players' knees tend to take excessive punishment on the court, leading to constant inflammation and even a predisposition to osteoarthritis due to rapid degeneration of the cartilage. Bowlers will frequently complain of back pain or even shoulder pain as a result of their rapid twisting motion. 

Chiropractic sports injury treatment can help alleviate these aches and pains and prevent them from progressing to more serious conditions. At Community Health & Wellness, Dr. Howard Dinner and Dr. Russell Ficara can prolong your playing time and help you lead a strong fulfilling life on and off the field.
