After spending the last several months in various degrees of social isolation and in various levels of stress, active people have begun venturing out into public spaces once again. Runners are running, people who like to fish are fishing, campers are camping, and golfers are golfing. To most, engaging in the activities they love feels great. But it is also possible that spending months primarily indoors and separate from their chosen sporting activity has caused some people to dive back into their favorite sport with a bit too much enthusiasm and a bit too little preparation. If you find yourself in this situation, we are here to help.
Relieving Pain After a Sports Injury
If you are one of those people who jumped back into a sport and felt the pain from overworked muscles, sprained ankles, or even bone fractures, Caron Chiropractic can help you. It is very common for injuries to happen after a period of rest from one’s favorite sport. In most cases, the injury is temporary and will improve with treatment. But injuries of a more severe nature can become more problematic over the long term if they are not treated correctly from the start. Some injuries may seem minor because the pain level associated with them is relatively low. However, these injuries can become more chronic if they are not given the attention necessary to help you heal thoroughly.
Our team understands your desire to be active, and we also understand that much of the benefit of playing the sports you love comes from pushing your limits and challenging yourself to achieve new goals. It is in the acts associated with pushing and challenging that athletic people often find themselves injured. The culture of our country involves a combination of pushing through pain or treating it with over-the-counter medication. While there is bound to be the occasional need to push through pain and to use medication to provide short-term relief from pain, we recommend solutions that address the underlying concerns rather than simply treating the symptoms.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options For a Sports Injury
A unique combination of chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, and/or acupuncture can be a powerful means of not only relieving pain, but of helping the body heal more completely. The chiropractic care offered by Caron Chiropractic offers our clients the best possible chance of recovering from sports-related injury and getting back into it in the shortest possible time frame. If you are experiencing pain after exercise or have injured yourself after getting back to the sport you love, give us a call at (651) 255-9999 to schedule an appointment.
