Whether you enjoy the plethora of outdoor activities the Denver area offers in the summer, such as hiking, biking, or rock climbing, you love hitting the slopes each winter for some skiing or snowboarding, or you are a fan of participating in team sports, like basketball, football, or baseball, few things are worse than getting hurt while doing what you love. Unfortunately, sports injuries are all too common, and they affect athletes of all ages and skill levels.
When participating in any type of physical activity, injury prevention should always be one of your primary concerns. Despite your best efforts, however, accidents can still occur. If you have been sidelined by a sports injury, Denver South Chiropractic can help get you back in the game.
Chiropractic for Sports Injuries
If you have gotten hurt while participating in a sport, it is always best to have your injuries evaluated by a chiropractor. Even seemingly minor injuries can lead to long-term problems when not properly treated. During intense physical activities, seriously injuring a ligament, tendon, or muscle is easier than you may think. You could even cause serious damage to your spine, knee, ankle, or virtually any other part of your body. And in many cases, such injuries do not cause major pain or discomfort right away. For this reason, many athletes choose to “walk off” their injuries rather than seeking prompt medical attention.
When you visit Denver South Chiropractic for your sports medicine needs, we will begin by thoroughly assessing the damage. Our chiropractic team will conduct a complete exam and may order an x-ray, MRI, etc. if diagnostic imaging is required. Once we have a clear picture of exactly what is going on, we will create a treatment and rehabilitation plan that is customized to your needs. Your plan may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, at-home exercises, sports massage, and other treatments intended to treat the underlying issue and prevent future pain or discomfort.
