Sports Injury Treatment with Our Chiropractor in Midwest City, OK
A sports injury can only cause an unwelcome break from your favorite pastime, but it can also put severe constraints on your ability to get through the tasks of everyday life, whether you happen to be a professional athlete or a "weekend warrior." Strains, sprains, joint problems and other issues can stem from an acute impact or occur slowly as a reaction to musculoskeletal imbalances. Whatever the cause of your sports injury, you want to get back in the game of life as quickly and completely as you can -- and our Midwest City chiropractor at Sweeney Chiropractic Clinic can make it possible.
It's not hard to figure out why you're hurting if you've herniated a disc in a painful spill on the pavement or had your neck wrenched by a wrestling move. In such traumatic events, your weight-bearing joints are subjected to severe stresses they would never receive in routine daily life. Jolts to the spinal column can cause more than just neck or back pain; they can create serious misalignments that put pressure on critical nerve roots, which in turn causes pain, numbness, loss of function and other malfunctions to occur throughout your body. Acute soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains can occur at the same time, and if these injuries aren't rehabilitated properly, the tissues may become trapped by collections of scar tissue called adhesions, ruining your ability to move freely without pain.
Other sports injuries are the result, not the cause, of a physical alignment problem. If your body is off balance, then your sports technique may be similarly off balance. The need to overcompensate can place serious strain on specific tissues, causing pain and limiting flexibility. Spinal misalignment may make you more prone to specific repetitive stress disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis or golf elbow, runner's knee and plantar fasciitis.
Natural Sports Injury Treatment from Our Midwest City Chiropractor
The good news is that most any sports injury that causes or is caused by musculoskeletal misalignment is a good candidate for natural, conservative treatment methods such as chiropractic care. Our Midwest City chiropractor, Dr. Sweeney, will evaluate your current symptoms, athletic activity, spinal alignment and any history of sports injury you may have to determine the wisest and most effective approach to treatment.
Chiropractic adjustment to correct alignment problems can be highly effective at treating herniated discs, pinched nerves and other sources of acute pain -- instead of relying on drugs or surgery. It can also resolve chronic aches and pains created by longstanding postural problems while making it easier for you to correct and refine your athletic technique. In addition to chiropractic adjustment, our Midwest City chiropractor may prescribe other conservative techniques to help you heal.These include massage therapy, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and active release technique.
