Sports injuries can occur at any level of play ranging from amateur enthusiasts to professional athletes. It doesn’t necessarily take a major impact or sudden motion to source pain. In fact, most of the sports injuries our Fremont chiropractor sees are secondary conditions that result from repetitive motion. The overuse of muscles and tendons can wear down the joints over time, causing them to ache and they can even begin impinging on nearby nerve endings.
If you are looking for a safe, non-invasive and natural approach to getting the relief and healing you need, chiropractic care at Brainard Chiropractic offers alternative solutions for pain medication and surgery that can keep you out of the game. Dr. Brainard and his team of chiropractors and technicians are pleased to offer sports injury service and treatment in Fremont, North Bend, Hooper, Nebraska and Arlington, Nebraska.
Sprains and strains of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons are some of the most common sporting injuries Dr. Brainard diagnoses and treat. We also see a number of stress fractures and pulled muscles when our patients come to us seeking treatment for pain through chiropractic care. Other sports injuries we treat include:
Back Pain: Often caused by herniated, bulging or slipped discs due to a fall or impact, back pain is a common complaint of most athletes at some point during their career. When left untreated, back injuries can source a number of symptoms and secondary conditions including sciatica and radiating pain the neck, shoulders, and appendages.
Neck Pain: Neck pain troubles those even in low impact sports such as golf and tennis, often due to the repeated need to turn the head when swinging or watching the balls. However, it’s often the result of harsh impacts during sports such as hockey and football in cases where a concussion or whiplash result. Those with an ache in the neck are more prone to suffer from headaches and acute or chronic migraines.
Wrist Pain: Overuse, falls and impact injuries can source wrist pain. However, it can also be caused by conditions such as carpal tunnel or tendonitis which involves inflammation, tingling, and numbness in the wrist and hands.
Elbow Pain and Frozen Shoulder: Golf, tennis, basketball and just about any sport that calls for the frequent use of the elbows and shoulders can cause stiffness and loss of motion in the shoulder muscles or the elbow region.
Knee and Foot Related Injuries: Injuries to the knee can be devastating, especially ACL tears and MCL related conditions. These may require surgical intervention, but chiropractic care prior to and after any surgeries can be a huge asset in reducing pain and recovery times. Weak knees put excessive pressure on the shins and can result in a shooting pain between the knees and feet and source shin splints. Heel spurs are common in runners and running sports, and this painful condition is also called plantar fasciitis.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your condition, Dr. Brainard and his team will diligently uncover the source of your aches and pains and recommend an integrated approach to natural techniques to help you heal faster and prevent future injuries. These techniques may include:
