Minimizing Injury As You Return To Pre-Pandemic ActivitiesAs our world gets closer and closer to normal interaction after the pandemic, our favorite activities have become more accessible once again. After nearly three years of shutdowns, postponements, and cancellations, we can once again be active in public settings. Many of us enjoy the activities associated with sports. If you have been unable to play your favorite sports for an extended period of time, you may discover some pain and discomfort following your return. If you are inclined to push your limits, you might discover that you have actually injured yourself. Caron Chiropractic can help you identify the specific ailment or injury you have incurred, and help you recover faster so that you can stay active and even increase your participation in your favorite sport.

Chiropractic Care For Pain Stiffness And Injury

Playing sports is a wonderful way to stay in shape. Participating in our favorite athletic activities is not only good for us physically, but also good for us psychologically. Experiencing a setback as a result of a sports injury can have a negative impact on our emotional well-being. The treatments offered by Caron Chiropractic for sports-related injuries like sprains, strains, and impact injuries can minimize time away from your sport and prevent future injury.

The kind of treatment we provide for you depends on the specific circumstances of your injury. For strains and sprains, we may recommend massage therapy of the affected area, combined with acupuncture. Massage therapy is a good way to relax the muscles in the affected area. It also breaks up lactic acid in the muscle tissue, which leads to the immune system going into action. Acupuncture then works as a means of stimulating the body’s self-healing mechanisms.

In cases involving impact, such as the jumping and running associated with basketball, tennis, and pickleball, and other sports played on hard surfaces, a chiropractic adjustment may be in order. Any sport that involves running means that the body will experience the force of impact each time the feet strike the ground. The repetition of those impacts can have a cumulative effect, requiring chiropractic treatment to realign the vertebrae of the spine.

Chiropractic adjustments can also make the body move more efficiently, resulting in more efficient running, jumping, and other actions specific to your sport. Over time, however, repeated impact means that chiropractic adjustment will likely be needed. This is part of the cycle of health maintenance for those who are active in their favorite sports.
