Almost any activity can lead to issues requiring a chiropractor for sports injuries. You may stop too quickly, twist an ankle, fall, run into an opponent, overextend a joint or otherwise hurt yourself. Even the smallest injury can lead to shoulder and neck pain or other problems due to your body's natural instinct to overcompensate. Common sport injuries include:
- Back and neck pain
- Knee problems
- Muscle strains
- Tennis elbow
Many people get their daily exercise through running, jogging or swimming, and find themselves making a false step that leads to injury. Golf and tennis are popular activities that often lead to issues with joints. If you play soccer, basketball, football or other semicontact sports, you put yourself at risk of injury. Spinal adjustment can help with many of these injuries because it corrects any misalignment that could contribute to pain, weakness and extended rehab requirements.
