MINOR SPORTS INJURIES
Almost any part of your body can be injured. Your body is prone to the same kinds of aches and pains, whether you are an amateur sports enthusiast or a professional. Repetitive stresses can have impact on the posture, proper movement of your vertebrae and joints, which in turn, can interfere with the healthy functioning of your muscles and nerves.
Chiropractic is often effective for minor sports injuries. We often see patients with problems of the neck, shoulder, elbow, back, hip, knee and ankle, which may arise from sports injury.
Chiropractic in the sports arena specialises in the care of musculoskeletal injuries, including prevention, and aims at keeping your body in its peak condition. Spinal adjustments have been an integral part of many sportspersons’ lifestyles due to the long-term benefits of chiropractic care.
