Why Should You Choose Chiropractic for Sports Injury Treatment?

Written By Chiropractic USA on November 7, 2018

Whether you’re a weekend warrior, professional athlete, or somewhere in between, sports injuries can happen to anyone at any time. 

Even just heading to the Santa Clara gym every day puts your hands, joints, feet, back, neck, and entire musculoskeletal system at risk for some type of injury or stress.

Not only is chiropractic care a safe and effective sports injury treatment, but it can also help keep you in top shape as part of your balanced fitness routine. There’s a reason so many professional athletes trust chiropractors to plan their post-injury recoveries.

Chiropractors Understand Biomechanics

Chiropractors in Santa Clara, CA have to complete between 4,400 and 5,220 hours of education which often includes specialty training in sports injury. 

Even without this specialty training, chiropractors have a thorough understanding of biomechanics and the musculoskeletal system that many physicians lack. 

This knowledge about body movement is crucial for treating a patient’s complicated sports injuries. Let’s face it: all sports injuries are complicated. Chiropractors understand that all injuries are unique because everyone’s biomechanics are different.

In fact, studies show that chiropractic care is more effective than conventional sports injury treatment and prevention for conditions like tennis elbow, bunions, and muscle strain. 

Chiropractors will never suggest invasive surgery as a first resort for your injury. They know that in many cases, pain persists following surgery. Plus, the recovery period from surgery is probably much longer than you’re comfortable with as an athlete.

Chiropractic Care Targets the Underlying Cause

Jogging, weight lifting, plyometrics, tackling, and even just hiking along the California coast all put you at risk for developing specific conditions from muscle imbalances. 

Chiropractors like Dr. Fataneh Hooshdaran take time to listen to the story behind your injury and what kind of athletic activity is part of your routine. They'll examine your spine and musculoskeletal system to determine the best course of action for your sports injury.

Physicians, on the other hand, offer a one-size-fits all solution to every type of injury which doesn’t do much to treat your condition at its source and help your body rebuild itself.

Furthermore, chiropractors can help you stay in optimal shape and avoid injury in the first place with regular adjustments and education about posture, technique, and nutrition.
