Chiropractor Cares for Injured Athletes
There are many kinds of injuries caused by sports. One common sport injury is a pulled hamstring; football and soccer players often suffer from hamstring problems because of the impact on the body when they come into contact with other players. A bulging disc is another sports injury that occurs with athletes. When the spine is out of alignment it can cause neck pain and back pain, even a slight misalignment can produce pain in your back and numbness in your legs or arms.
Tendonitis is another injury many athletes have to endure. The tendons become irritated and inflamed from constantly moving and causing them to stretch beyond their normal range. Injury to the shoulder is another effect of certain sports. A dislocated shoulder causes pain, swelling and ligament damage.
