Sports Injuries

Whether you are an amateur, professional or just a weekend athlete, you understand the demand your body is under when participating in a sport. While these sports are enjoyable for everyone involved, they can also put a lot of stress on your body that can eventually result in sprains, strains or even painful tears.

Through routine chiropractic care Dr. Dykes can help you find relief from your sports injury, heal faster after an injury, and can even help you prevent them!  Athletes receiving routine chiropractic care will experience a release in tension once your bones are in proper alignment. By ensuring you have your spine and other joints in their correct alignment, your body will be able to function better and be less likely to experience another injury.

Here at Health Is Hope we understand that the reason many athletes suffer from sports-related injuries is because their bodies experience repetitive motions, forceful impacts, are over-trained or haven’t been warmed up properly. This is why we strongly recommend all athletes schedule regular spinal checkups to prevent future injuries and keep your body performing properly.

These injuries can often be painful and sometimes even debilitating. If your body has become injured from playing in sports or intense training workouts, symptoms you may experience are:

  • Burning
  • Dull Pain
  • Headaches
  • Swelling
  • Muscle Pains
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle Spasms

It’s no secret that professional athletes utilize chiropractors all the time to ensure they are at the top of their game and to prevent potential injury. As a chiropractic office in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, it is important you understand your body was designed to move! While it can be extremely rewarding to participate in sports and other recreational activities, it is also important to remember that unexpected injuries can occur.
