Learn more about chiropractic sports injury treatments in the guide below from Dr. Sheridan and the team at Bonney Lake Chiropractic and Massage in Bonney Lake, WA.

Common Sports Injuries

Chiropractors often treat neck and back pain, but they can also be effective in treating other injuries and symptoms. These include but are not limited to:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Strains and sprains
  • Dislocations
  • Shin splints
  • Groin injuries
  • Runner’s knee
  • Ankle injuries
  • Wrist injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Golfer’s or tennis elbow

All of these injuries lie within the musculoskeletal system, which is what chiropractors specialize in.

Why Choose Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries?

As these injuries can also be treated by other specialists, you might wonder why you should visit a chiropractor instead. Below are some of the key benefits you can gain from this choice.

Chiropractors Use Natural Methods

As an athlete, you don’t want anything to impede your performance and abilities. Unfortunately, many specialists recommend surgical procedures which can do just that. Chiropractors utilize natural, non-invasive methods to empower the body to heal and perform at its best.

Chiropractic Care Gets to the Source

While many specialists can help you find relief, that relief will only be temporary if the source of the pain isn’t addressed. For example, a compressed nerve will only be healed when the pressure is removed from the nerve. Chiropractors focus on getting to the root and eliminating it, helping patients achieve optimal and lasting relief from their injuries.

It’s Holistic

Chiropractors work to address the source of your pain as well as any contributing factors. They also aim to undo any damage that the injury might have done to other musculoskeletal components. To do so, they provide a variety of techniques, including adjustments, spinal decompression, soft tissue therapy, therapeutic exercises, nutritional guidance, and much more.
