There are two main types of injuries associated with sports: acute and overuse. Acute injuries have an immediate onset of symptoms and, typically, a clear cause of injury. For example, a player twists their ankle while making a sudden change in direction. Overuse injuries are caused by repetitive microtrauma that eventually results in an injury with no clear cause. In the world of sports overuse injuries are extremely common.
Think of the top athletes and common injuries seen:
– The basketball player who goes up to grab a rebound and their knee just buckles and they tear their ligaments.
– The football player who day after day does similar drills and then on one cut to the side their ankle or knee gives out.
– The softball or baseball player who throws one too many times and now struggles to even go through that motion.
– The golfer who is constantly twisting in one direction as they work on their swing and their back locks up
The list could go on and on. At Grantsville Back Pain Relief Chiropractic we commonly treat athletes who participate in many different sports. We focus on both helping athletes recover from injuries as well as reducing the risk of injury in the first place.
