Despite doing everything right — stretching beforehand, wearing the proper equipment, or engaging in the appropriate training — sports-related injuries happen to the best of us. Whether you were playing in a championship tournament or weekend pickup game, the most important thing to know when playing sports on any level is that if you get hurt, stop playing as continuing to play can cause more harm than good.

From the slightest sprain to a major dislocation, sports injuries are serious and almost always require some form of treatment. The most common sports injuries include:

  • Knee injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Strains and sprains
  • Swollen muscles
  • Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
  • Joint injuries
  • Rotator cuff and shoulder injuries
  • And more

The first step in treating your injury is being evaluated by an experienced professional like our chiropractor’s. The treatment of your sports injury vary on the severity of your pain and the extent of the injury itself, and usually starts with rest, compression and elevation of the affected area. Treatments that may be recommended by our chiropractor’s at Anchor Holistic Health include chiropractic adjustments, various soft tissue therapies, rehabilitation exercises, or even surgery.
