Common Sports-Related Injuries Managed With Chiropractic Care

Athletes are susceptible to a variety of injuries. This is partly because people who regularly participate in physical exercise are inherently more at risk for activity-related injury. It's also worth remembering that many of us active folks--whether weekend warriors or pros--have hidden imbalances within their posture that may be putting us at an increased risk of injury, including:

  • Neck Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Whiplash (especially in contact sports)
  • Sciatica 
  • Shoulder Pain

Without realizing it, some of us may also be performing our sports-related duties with poor technique, improper equipment, and insufficient training or preparatory skills that may further be increasing our injury risk. Fortunately, all the above injuries are noted to respond positively to skilled care from a sports chiropractor like Dr. Kristie McLean. 

Top 3 Benefits Of Chiropractic Adjustment & Other Chiropractic Techniques For Boston Area Athletes

Are you a member of a local gym? Do you regularly run around the famed Boston streets or hit up the Esplanade? Whether you're a seasoned athletic pro or simply a humble fitness fan, you can benefit from chiropractic care. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. A chiropractic adjustment can help realign your spinal bones and reduce back pain caused by a joint subluxation. Adjustments can also improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and firing of your nervous system. This enhances the brain-body connection--critical for agility, reflexes, balance, and eye-hand coordination, among other physical tasks. 
  2. Chiropractic care provides non-invasive and drug-free treatments that can relieve your symptoms and accelerate your healing. So there's need to worry about accidentally taking any banned substances or ingesting medications with potentially harmful side effects.
  3. A sports injury chiropractor can identify and address the root cause of your symptoms--whether it's poor body mechanics, impaired flexibility, poor neuromuscular activation, or muscular imbalance--to prevent you from re-injuring yourself or developing a chronic problem.
