Sports Injury Care From Our Chiropractor in Greenwood Village
A sports injury can take you out of the game suddenly and dramatically, or it can sneak up on you and put you on the bench after years of chronic strain and musculoskeletal overuse. At times like these, you’ll be glad you can avail yourself of the sports injury treatment services offered by our chiropractor in Greenwood Village. In addition to his extensive chiropractic training, Dr. Johnson also has a Masters in Sports Science Rehabilitation. This additional knowledge and insight are put to good use through our safe, natural treatment and rehabilitation techniques.
Making Sense of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can assume a variety of forms and afflict any part of the musculoskeletal and/or nervous system. Athletes not only put specific joints and muscles under greater strain than the general population, but they can also find themselves in harm’s way on a regular basis. Some of the most common examples include sprains (damage to the tendons or muscles), strains (stretched or ruptured ligaments), tendonitis (tendon inflammation), and subluxation (dislocation within a joint).
Sports injuries may be either acute or chronic in nature. High-impact collisions such as a hard football tackle can knock the spinal column out of alignment, producing pinched nerves, herniated discs, and dislocated spinal joints. Other joints may also be twisted violently enough to cause dislocations, sprains, and strains. Chronic sports injuries are more subtle, usually developing over an extended period of time as the result of continuous overuse of a particular joint. This overuse can cause multiple micro-tears in tendons and muscles, leading to problems such as tennis elbow, golf elbow, and plantar fasciitis. Uncorrected spinal misalignments that keep you off-balance can strain soft tissues, pinch nerves and promote premature joint wear.
