Sports Injuries

Has a sports injury kept you from the activity you love? Do you want to help heal and rebuild your strength and get back into the game? Cape Fear Chiropractic can help relieve your pain, heal your injury, and help prevent future injuries.

Sports injuries are one of the most common causes of joint and muscle pain. While exercise helps strengthen your body, relieve stress and help build your musculoskeletal and circulatory systems, injuries can occur due to a variety of reasons. The lack of or misuse of safety equipment, player contact and simply overexertion can lead to injuries of the muscles and joints that can cause lasting pain if not treated properly. From strains and sprains to tendinitis to stress fractures, the chiropractic, therapeutic massage, nutrition, and exercise programs offered at Cape Fear Chiropractic can have you back in the game and pain-free in no time.

Sports Injuries that Benefit from Chiropractic Treatment

Strains and Sprains

Strains and sprains are the most common sports-related injuries. Strains are tears in muscles and/or tendons that attach the muscles to the bones. Sprains are tears in the ligaments, which join bones together. While severe tears may require surgery, less serious sports injuries and those that have been repaired surgically can benefit greatly from chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic adjustment, therapeutic massage, and physiotherapy treatments can relieve pain, increase circulation to injured areas, relieve inflammation and most of all help relieve pain all without medication.

Tennis elbow

Tendinitis, or more commonly called tennis elbow, is caused by overuse or overexertion of the joints. The most common areas where tendinitis can occur are the elbow and the shoulder. Overuse and overexertion can cause tendons to become inflamed causing pain and decreased range of motion. A combination of chiropractic manipulation, physiotherapy techniques, and a personalized exercise regime can help relieve inflammation, decrease pain, and help restore normal use.

Stress or Fatigue Fractures

Stress or fatigue fractures occur when too much stress is placed on a bone especially on hard surfaces. Stress or fatigue fractures can happen due to overexertion, overuse, or simply over time. Chiropractic care can help relieve the pain caused by stress and fatigue fractures, improve the healing process, and help provide sufferers with exercise techniques to help eliminate future issues.

Prevention is the greatest way to avoid sports injuries, but they can occur in even the most highly trained athletes. Cape Fear Chiropractic can help relieve the pain of sport injuries as well as provide a plan to prevent them in the future.
