Chiropractic Help for Your Sports Injuries
Playing sports is not only fun, it is a great way to maintain your fitness and stay healthy. But all active sports come with the risk of injury, especially if you regularly train and push yourself to your limits.
As a leading chiropractor in Hong Kong, SPINEfirst focuses on harnessing the body’s self-adjusting and recuperative abilities to help with sports injuries. Booking a session with us can help you with both alleviating symptoms like aches and pains as well as correcting the root cause.
What are some common sports injuries that a chiropractor can help with?
Sport injuries can be from an accident or from repeated, long-term strain of your body. As one of the most delicate and intricate parts of the human body, your spine is one of the easiest places to injure. Whether it be your lower back, upper back, neck, a chiropractor can help you recover from your sports injury quickly and efficiently.
Lower back injuries can be particularly painful and are often caused by sports that include twisting motions, repetitive impact, or lifting heavy weights. Be mindful of lower back injuries if you play sports like golf, regularly go for long-distance running, or frequent the gym to lift weights. Upper back injuries are less common but can be just as troublesome as lower back injuries. They are often caused by more strenuous sports like football. Lastly, injuries to your neck are particularly common amongst sports with more physical contact.
How does it work?
Our chiropractic work can help you recover from a wide range of spinal injuries related to sports. Many of these injuries involve what is called a “vertebral subluxation”. You can read more about this here, but it is essentially when the vertebrae in your spine are misaligned thanks to an injury. Your doctor will then administer a series of high velocity but controlled sudden movements onto the spine. These movements work together to alleviate symptomatic pain and remedy the injury, allowing you to get back to playing sports unhindered and without pain.
One of the benefits of chiropractic care is that it involves treatment without the need for medication or surgery. For many, this is a huge benefit and allows them to combine chiropractic treatment with other solutions for a speedier recovery.
