Spinal Adjustments to Help Treat Sports Injuries


Injuries can happen in any sport. Young athletes may suffer from cumulative damage both from rigorous training and from playing sports. This can lead to lingering pain and immobility. At Active Life Team Chiropractic, we have provided residents of Sacramento, CA, with sports injury treatment for many years.

Which Sports Injuries Can a Chiropractor Treat?

Minor injuries like bruising will heal on their own. However, more serious injuries may require more care to recover from. Common injuries treated by our chiropractor include:

  • Concussions
  • Pain in the upper, middle, and lower back
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Torn ligaments including the ACL
  • Tendonitis
  • Bone fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Dislocated joints such as the knees
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Chiropractic Treatment

Your chiropractor can track down injuries or conditions that are affecting an athlete's musculoskeletal system and soft tissues. Depending on the injuries, our chiropractor may realign their spines or use other chiropractic techniques to restore the body’s natural alignment. Other therapies may be needed as well, such as sports massage to reduce painful inflammation, and stretches to restore flexibility and mobility. Finally, our chiropractor will discuss a very important part of the process with you and your children: the recovery plan for home.

How You Can Help Your Child after a Sports Injury

Get them to care from experienced professionals as soon as possible. Many athletic kids and teens have a lot of energy, but jumping back into the sport too soon can aggravate injuries. Support their health with hydration, nutrition, and plenty of sleep. Their bodies need lots of fluids, vitamins, and minerals to heal. Sleep is also essential, and boosts alertness and coordination, along with speeding the healing process. For more serious injuries, the rehabilitation process may be long, frustrating, and uncomfortable. Help them stick to the rehab schedule so they’ll come out the other side stronger than ever.
