Are sporting injuries taking too long to heal or is pain keeping you from your sporting activities? Chiropractic care is a great way to not only treat sports injuries but to prevent them from happening in the first place. In this blog post I cover some of the more common sports injuries, how chiropractic helps athletic performance and the 3 P's of sports injury.

Common Sporting Injuries

By working together to prevent and/or manage common sporting injuries, we create a healthier, more active community while assisting in reducing obesity and minimising lifestyle diseases. Common sporting injuries include:

  • back, hip and leg pain
  • disc injury

How does Chiropractic help Sports Injury?

When treating sports injury, the focus of chiropractic is on the neuromusculoskeletal system in relation to rehabilitation and performance optimisation of athletes. Have you even wondered why most professional sporting clubs have a resident chiropractor or physiotherapist on hand? Chiropractic, when combined with other treatments in a sports setting, provides a strong multi-disciplinary injury care environment to fully support each athlete.

Remember the 3 P's

If you want to improve your sports performance, consider chiropractic. Chiropractic works to reduce pain, improve posture and boost performance: otherwise known as the 3 P's. Let me explain this in more detail.

  • Reduce Pain – Chiropractors are spine health care experts and are known for managing feelings of pain and discomfort, especially along the spinal column.
  • Improve Posture – Your posture, consisting of your form and influencing your function, determines how well your body performs. A strong posture with a natural alignment will have better biomechanics than a weaker posture with misalignments.
  • Boost Performance – By improving biomechanics and optimising posture, athletes can boost their sporting performance.

How might chiropractic help you?

Successful treatment of sporting injuries often combines one or more treatment approaches that may include:

  • chiropractic adjustments
  • soft tissue therapies
  • electrotherapy
  • rehabilitation and other movement/exercise therapies
  • specific stretching
  • ice/heat therapy
  • nutritional advice
  • strapping and bracing

Here at Lyons Road Family Chiropractic, we offer some of these treatment options - it depends on your case and our diagnosis. These approaches may be used for both acute and chronic injury and for addressing the 3 P's - reducing pain, improving posture and boosting athletic performance. Our team may advice you on your case and may recommend treatment options if required. If you're looking for care close to Drummoyne and Five Dock, we can help.
