SPORTS INJURIES AND CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
A study shows that almost 20 percent of all sports-related injuries affect the neck, lower back, and knee. Contact sports, such as football and soccer, increase the risk of an injury to the neck and spinal cord.
Did you know that more than one-third of high school and college football players sustain an injury per year? Football and soccer players are known to suffer from mild to severe head traumas, neck injuries, and cervical spine damage.
Symptoms of a Sports-Related Injury
Football and soccer players along with powerlifters and gymnasts describe symptoms such as dizziness, neck or back pain, sensitivity or irritability, and insomnia as early indicators of an underlying injury.
Chiropractic Treatment for Sport Injuries
At South Florida Spine & Joint Center, we provide a variety of treatment options for neck and back injuries, pinch nerves, bulging or herniated discs, muscle strains or tears, and spinal misalignment.
Personalize Treatment Program
To locate the source of the injury and assess the extent of the damage, our experienced chiropractors will perform a physical examination, which may include x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs.
Based on our findings, our team will develop a chiropractic treatment plan unique to each patient, their needs, and recovery goals.
