Chiropractic Care to Treat

Common Sports Injuries 

Whether it is intramural, city league, recreational or professional, sports are a vibrant and integral part of our culture.  Even in youth sports the numbers of participants are rising as now nearly 30 million children and adolescents participate in youth sports in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  However, with those who participate in sports, comes the risk of a sports-related injury.

The most common sports injuries are sprains, strains, and fractures.

  1. A sprain occurs when the ligament is extended further than its limit.
  2. A strain happens when a tendon is stretched too far.

Both ligaments and tendons are like a coil or spring that if they are stretched too far they will become damaged and are sometimes referred to as a pulled muscle.

A fracture is a broken bone. On average a person experiences two fractures or broken bones over a lifetime.

Not So Obvious Injuries 

Other Potential Types of Sports Injuries 

In any kind of physical contact sport, collision sport or one with excessive use of exertion, every part of the body is affected. Some of the most common locations where injuries to the body occur are:

Head

Concussion

Neck & Spine

Whiplash, Neck Strain, Overextension

Back & Spine

Slipped Disc, Stress Fracture, Nerve Damage, Muscle Strain
