Sports Injury Care

Sports Injury Rehabilitation Center in San Diego: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent them.

Most injuries incur during practice and from repetitive motion

Athletes can suffer from injuries due to forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.

Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.

Look for the following symptoms:

  • Swelling
  • Burning, dull pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pains
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle Spasms

Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:

Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Ta treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decrease inflammation and allow the nervous system to function optimally.

When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also strengthen the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.

Dr. Ta can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At CK Chiropractic Center, Dr. Ta will perform a full evaluation. Dr. Ta will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
