Bloomington Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are treated regularly at Bloomington Neurospinal Chiropractic Clinic.  There are many conditions that can result when you get hurt from playing sports. A variety of muscles, joints and ligaments are used when involved in active play, all of which can be affected by strain from overuse, trauma, or not being properly warmed and cooled down.

Sports injuries are generally in the form of soft tissue injuries, which refers to any damage to the soft tissues of the body, such as ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves, joints and connective tissue.

There are a number of ways in which a soft tissue sports injury can occur:

  • Muscle strain – when the muscle or tendon is pulled too far in one direction
  • Contusions – resulting from a direct blow to the muscle/tissue
  • Tendonitis – resulting from a tendon being overstressed and inflamed
  • Ligament Sprains – occuring when a ligament is stretched beyond its normal range

Dr. Craig Morrow and Dr. Greg Morrow specialise in the non-drug treatment of musculoskeletal problems, including joint sprains and disk injuries. Often, when a muscle or joint is injured, the body naturally compensates, attempting to maintain balance and protect itself by tightening other muscles and joints. For example, the persistent pain in your shoulder could be the result of a direct injury to the shoulder; it could also reflect your body’s compensation for spinal-joint movement restrictions in your neck.

Many athletes are being sidelined with injuries that could be avoided, or sitting out on the bench because their injury is not responding to ordinary treatment. Others still are playing, but at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not balanced. During many sports, body contact, fast stops and starts, and positioning place an unusual amount of strain on the spine and structural system. As a result, chiropractic gives special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves of the athlete. In fact, many high level athletes visit a Chiropractor for a ‘tune-up’ before a game to help prepare joints and muscles and reduce the risk of injury.

What Can Bloomington Chiropractic do?

Chiropractic care and adjustments help restore the natural balance that existed before injury. Treatment of sports injuries at includes widely used physical therapies such as ice for swelling and inflammation and heat and electronic muscle stimulation for muscle strains and sprains. These techniques help athletes return to training and perform at their peak level sooner.
