Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Jobstown, NJ: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent them.

Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:

The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.

Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.

Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:

  • Swelling
  • Burning, dull pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pains
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle Spasms

Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:

Chiropractic care keeps the body working at its peak. Having the body in balance helps prevent injuries of the back, neck, shoulders, hips, and ankles. A spine that is aligned means a nervous system that works properly. This means that muscles, organs, and bodily functions can work without interference. Preventive care keeps athletes in top form. However, injuries do occur and with chiropractic care there is corrective healing and the healing process is quicker and it will hold.

Repetitive injuries are very common. Tennis players who repeatedly stress their forearm muscles may develop tennis elbow; runners whose shoes aren’t supportive enough may be plagued by shin splints or runner’s knee; baseball players who don’t work to strengthen their shoulder may find themselves with a shoulder impingement. Running is an essential element of many sports and it involves every muscle from the foot to the neck, putting particular strain on the legs and this leads to the most injuries.

At Springfield Family Chiropractic, the doctors will perform a full evaluation. They will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.

Kinesio Tape

Sports Injury Rehab in Jobstown, NJThere are a number of benefits to Kinesio taping that far outweigh traditional taping methods of the past.  These include:

  • Muscle Support: Kinesio tape supports the muscle’s ability to contract. This can relieve any pain or fatigue felt in the muscle and prevents cramping.
  • Joint Corrections: Using the tape properly will increase the range of motion in your joints and loosen your muscles.
  • Self-Healing: There is no medicine or drugs in Kinesio tape. It instead works by allowing your body to heal itself.
  • Allowing flow of body fluids: Kinesio tape promotes and improves blood and lymphatic circulation. This will reduce inflammation in your body’s tissue.
