Chiropractor for Sports Injuries

Chiropractor for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries cover a wide range of injuries that can occur while participating in sporting activities. They are especially common in contact sports such as football, rugby and ice hockey. While sports injuries are generally mild or moderate, they can take weeks or months to heal even with effective treatments. Sports massage therapy at Melbourne Chiro Clinic may be the solution to your pain.

Our sports injury chiropractor at Melbourne Chiro Clinic can provide a range of natural treatments as well as suggest a regime of beneficial exercises that are tailored to accommodate your specific circumstances. Our sports injury chiropractor can also provide education about the best ways to avoid or prevent unnecessary injuries while engaging in sports activities in the future.

Types of Sports Injuries

There are many different types of sports injuries that can be treated by a sports injury chiropractor at Melbourne Chiro Clinic. Some of these include:

  • Ankle sprains – These occur when the foot turns inward, stretching or tearing the relatively weak ligaments on the outside of the ankle.
  • Hamstring strains – The hamstring consists of three muscles in the back of the thigh which can be over-stretched by movements such as hurdling. These injuries can be especially slow to heal.
  • Tennis elbow – This injury is more common in those who play tennis or golf, as these sports involve repetitive movements of the elbow. These movements can cause tiny tears to develop in the tendons of the elbow.

Other sports injuries include knee injuries, shin splints, tendon injuries, and more. Treatments vary from injury to injury, but exercises are often effective. For example, exercises that address ankle sprains can help to prevent loss of strength and flexibility.
