There is a certain amount of general muscle soreness, stiffness and fatigue that comes with participating in many different sports. When that stiffness and tightness turns from soreness to pain, it is time to seek treatment so that you can continue to participate and compete. Over the counter medications may temporarily reduce the inflammation and pain but will mask your symptoms and can even make you vulnerable to further injury. Non-invasive treatment options like chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and acupuncture can be incredibly effective tools for improving your overall range of motion and reducing pain and stiffness. St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center specializes in non-invasive sports medicine injury treatment so that you can get back to the sport you love and prevent future injuries. The most common sports injuries that respond well to chiropractic treatment include:
- Shoulder injuries including rotator cuff injuries
- Hamstring strains
- Lower back pain and injury
- Neck pain and injuries
- Other muscle strain or soft tissue injuries
Sports Injury Treatment and Prevention
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from overuse or you have a specific strain, sprain or soft tissue injury, you may benefit from chiropractic treatment. The team at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center can help evaluate the physical issue that you are struggling with and come up with a treatment plan that will address the underlying injury once and for all, so that you will come back stronger and ready for your next competition or sports activity. Best of all, you will not have to worry about taking pain medications or the idea of a more invasive intervention. Very often we recommend a combination of chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy for the sports injuries that we see. We can also recommend specific exercises that will strengthen the muscles around the inflamed or injured area in order to prevent future injuries.
