What Causes Sports and Accident Related Injuries
Even though such injuries occur when we least expect them, they can be traced back to a few common causes.
You are most at risk if you do not warm up enough; if you engage in heavy contact sports; or if you have not been active for a long time.
Younger children who do not have experience in guarding against such injuries may be more vulnerable.
On the flip side, older people who choose to engage in higher-risk activities must also be cautious as their bodies are more fragile.
Symptoms of Sports and Accident Related Injuries
Symptoms of sports and accident related injuries vary depending on the severity of the condition you may have and these can include:
Sudden and Sharp Pain
Bone or Joint Visibly Out of Place
General Weakness and Tenderness
How can Chiropractic help?
Diagnose the right condition for a personalised treatment
Our chiropractors will assess the cause and severity of your condition with a physical assessment during the consultation. In addition to the physical exam, we'll look into your past medical history and any recent X-ray results available to pinpoint the cause of the pain. Determining the source of the pain is essential to recommend the right method of treatment and rehabilitation. Treatment will be customised to your condition and these options can include:
To improve joint function and alleviate the stress on your affected body parts.
Increases blood flow and reduces inflammation while promoting healing in tears, sprains, and strains.
Relaxes contracted muscles and releases the fascia that covers the muscle.
Electrotherapy (TENS machine)
TENS help to block the transmission of pain signals along the nerves and also release the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins.
Holds muscles and bone together, reduces pain, and aids recovery.
Active Release Therapy
Usually applied for patients with chronic pain issues to treat the soft injury tissue by breaking the adhesions.
Providing long-term care as your healthcare partner
Whole-Body Treatment Approach
Our chiropractors adopt a whole-body treatment approach to evaluate your pain areas as a whole because other regions of the neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and low back (lumbar) may be affected as well. We aim to treat the “whole person,” not just to treat your specific symptoms.
Advice on Posture, Exercises, Diet and Nutrition
In order to treat the root of chronic pains that are recurring over time, our chiropractors seek to understand your lifestyle and work demands so as to provide personalised patient-centric care and advice over a longer time horizon as your healthcare partner.
