Roanoke Sports Injury

Common Sports Injuries

Our chiropractor recognizes that a variety of injuries occur when engaging in a sport. By knowing the common injuries that may cause physical pain or complications with your health, you take measures to address the discomfort and encourage your body to heal.

Common injuries you may develop from sports activities include:

  • Neck injuries, such as whiplash or strained muscles in the neck
  • Back injuries, which may occur while lifting heavy objects, engaging in a sport or practicing for a sport
  • Concussions, particularly in contact sports like football
  • Shin splints, which may occur in soccer or related sports
  • Knee injuries, which cause physical pain and may impact your ability to walk
  • Tennis or golf elbow, which occurs from repetitive motions
  • Tears in the muscles or ligaments

Dr. Rhodes will provide treatments based on your specific injuries and the optimal combination of techniques to address your condition.

Impact of Treatment

The results of treatment depend on the injuries you sustained. We will focus on your unique needs to provide a personalized course of treatment. Dr. Rhodes may recommend chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation to help with neck and back pain. We may use chiropractic adjustments to address improper spinal alignment. Sports injures could also benefit from decompression therapy, taping to prevent further injuries or orthotics to restore your balance and gate. Treatments for muscle or ligament damage may also utilize soft tissue manipulation, massage, or physical therapy. The key to healing and pain relief is focusing on the injuries and addressing the underlying concerns that cause your discomfort.

Preventing Sports Injuries

Our chiropractor may also consider treatments to prevent further injuries. Dr. Rhodes can teach you stretches and exercises to prevent injuries and strengthen your body. We also focus on helping you retain your flexibility and mobility, even after an injury. By addressing the injuries and encouraging improvements to your movements, you have a lower risk of pain and repeat injuries in the future.
