Common Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries in Santa Clara
Sports-related injuries are one of the most common reasons our patients come to see us. Here is a short list of the injuries we help repair and manage on a regular basis.
Sprained Ankle: Rolling, twisting or turning your ankle beyond its normal range of motion will result in damaged ligaments and a sprained ankle. Swelling and intense pain are accompanied by being able to place little to no weight on the foot directly after the injury. Normally the treatment is pain medication and letting the foot rest. However, this overlooks the problem that the bones in the foot and ankle may have become shifted, resulting in longer recovery time and a high possibility of recurrence. A chiropractor can realign the foot so that pressure is evenly distributed, the healing process is hastened and the overall stability of the ankle is increased.
Shin Splint: From running a marathon to chasing your kids around the backyard, there are many reasons shin splints occur. The shin bone is designed largely as a stabilizer and a shock absorber but if it is damaged or misaligned it can become inflamed and/or irritated, resulting in significant pain and discomfort. The chiropractors at Mission Chiropractic can realign the foot so that pressure is more evenly distributed and lessen the possibility of recurring injuries.
Tennis Elbow: Tennis elbow occurs when there is inflammation in the tendons that connect to the elbow which occurs when the muscles are overexerted. The pain is localized around the elbow but it can also move across the forearm and end as far as the back of the middle finger. A chiropractor will be able to see if the muscles and bones have been affected by the strain which lead to the problem. After initial treatment, a rehabilitation plan will be made to the specific needs of our Santa Clara patients.
