Sports Related Injury Care From Our Downtown Toronto Chiropractor
Engaging in a sports activity provides a healthy way to stay active. The challenge is managing potential injuries that arise from engaging in a sport. Playing a sport increases the risk of facing an injury. At the office of Dr. Brian Dower, Chiropractor, we address the injuries and take measures to prevent future complications.
Common Injuries Related to Sports
Injuries related to sports depend on the specific type of sport you play. Certain risks are obvious, such as tennis elbow caused by the repetitive motion of playing the sport. Other injuries may seem complicated due to the possibility of accidents on the field.
Common injuries that may arise when you play a sport include:
- Ankle sprains, which usually relates to playing a sport like soccer due to the running and the potential contact with other players
- Knee pain, which may relate to any sport from running and the impact of running on your knees
- Shoulder pain, which is common in hockey, tennis and sports that require the use of your shoulders and arms
- Elbow pain, which occurs from repetitive motions in sports like tennis and golf
- Concussions, which occur when you have a head injury from a contact sport like hockey
The injuries depend on your sport and the movements required for the sport; however, many occur from accidents on the field of contact with other players. In the case of non-contact sports like golf, it usually relates to repetitive motions. The injuries limit your mobility and may cause severe discomfort that impacts your normal activities.
Who Needs Sports Injury Treatment?
Sports injury treatment benefits any individual who plays a sport. It helps amateur players and professional athletes who may face injuries from the sport or as a direct result of training for a sport.
At the office of Dr. Brian Dower, Chiropractor, we evaluate the underlying factors contributing to your injuries before developing a personalized treatment strategy. Any athlete who plays a sport may benefit from chiropractic care by addressing injuries or taking measures to reduce the risk of injuries from the sport. The specific advantages depend on the activities and the injuries that impact your health.
