When the body becomes injured because of sports or training, symptoms that can occur are:
Depending on what type of sport you play, injuries will differ. Common injuries can include:
Neck Injuries- Neck injuries, such as whiplash, occur when the neck is quickly and forcefully pushed forwards or backwards in a whipping motion. Contact sports should be approached carefully simply because there is a higher risk for whiplash. Damage to the spine around the neck region can cause inflammation, which can result in pain and limited range of motion. Your Houston Chiropractors use gentle and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore the neck back to its proper form.
Pinched Nerves- Pinched nerve due to spine injury sustained from sporting activities can be painful. Advanced Chiropractic Relief has decades of experience providing chiropractic adjustment of the spine to relieve pressure on the nerve, which alleviates pain and allows the body to function better. and What is surprising is that many patients suffer with the pain for a prolonged periods of time, when instead they could consult a chiropractor and be on the road to a pain free and active life again.
When engaging in sports or physical activities, keep in mind your body’s abilities, and the fact that it is designed to move. And do not waste time (and great weather) struggling with the sports injuries. Call us today!
