It’s not often realized that chiropractic care can be used to treat sports injuries, but in fact it can be effective in treating a variety of injuries including overuse, sprains and strains.
If a sports enthusiast or athlete is faced with a knee, ankle, shoulder or elbow sprain a chiropractor can most often adjust these areas and effectively help the person to recover more quickly.
In addition to a manual adjustment, a chiropractor can work with soft tissues, use modalities all throughout the injured area, as well as consult with the patient on exercises and stretches that can be done to help heal the injured area.
Regular chiropractic treatment can also help to prevent future injuries. Book an appointment at the Victoria Chiropractic Centre to help keep you moving freely and without pain.
