No matter what sport you play, whether it’s golf, basketball, baseball, or football, you can be brought down by a bad injury. A fast recovery is important so you can get back on the field as soon as possible. While many doctors prescribe medications to treat the pain, going to a chiropractor can treat the pain and the injury at the source. At NORTH MIAMI BEACH Chiropractic in Florida, your speedy recovery is our top priority.
Muscle strains are the most common sports injury and can be easily treated with proper chiropractic care. Your chiropractor can do specific back and neck adjustments and massages to relieve the tension on the affected muscle without using any drugs. Your chiropractor can also teach you specific stretches to avoid any pulled or strained muscles in the future.
A sprained joint can be very painful, and your first thought may be to rush to a doctor to get painkillers. While painkillers may reduce pain, they don’t heal the injury and can cause nasty side effects. Your chiropractor will massage the area to relieve the swelling and reduce pain in the area. The chiropractor can perform small adjustments to release anti-inflammatory hormones that will speed up recovery.
Back injuries are very common for people who play golf and baseball. The violent swinging can easily cause you to throw out your back or pull a muscle. Your chiropractor can teach you the proper posture to relieve strains and prevent worse injuries. Besides performing specific adjustments tailored to your injury, the chiropractor can also use ultrasound technology to relieve pressure and reduce tension.
