REDDING, Calif., March 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many amateur and professional athletes use chiropractic to prevent and treat sports injuries and improve performance. Chiropractic care at Churn Creek Chiropractic offers natural solutions to improve general health, address spinal imbalances and biomechanical functioning. Sports injuries can happen during or after activity and a chiropractor who specializes in sports wellness can help individuals avoid injury and shorten recovery times when sports injury treatment or rehabilitation is necessary. Manual chiropractic manipulations and specialized techniques support the body’s own healing process. Chiropractic is effective for back injuries, joint problems, and herniated or bulging discs.
Many people from a range of backgrounds enjoy an active lifestyle. Those in professional sports rely on the optimal performance of their body and want to increase the career longevity. Amateurs involved in sports, from football, skiing, golfing, running and more need to be aware of how to protect their bodies from injury and take proper measure in the case of a sports-related injury.
Tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, joint problems, along with knee, shoulder and back pain are common sports injuries. Repetitive stress, overuse, and forceful collisions can result in a sports injury. In one survey, it was found that 31 percent of football teams in the NFL had a chiropractor on staff and athletes using chiropractic care frequently reported its effectiveness. Chiropractic is used in professional and college football, hockey, martial arts, tennis, and baseball to address conditions such as a sports hernia or tennis elbow. Without treatment, simple and routine activities such as lifting a heavy box may be the final trigger of a serious injury that has been progressing over time. Regular chiropractic treatments are known to improve an athlete’s flexibility and range of motion. Treatment has also been effective in addressing low-back pain and repetitive stress injuries and shortens recovery periods.
