Physically active people come in all ages shapes and sizes. Some exercise daily while others once a week or two. Many professional athletes see a chiropractor regularly to help them maintain their high level of performance. Sports injuries are usually due to too much too quickly, poor form, and or physical trauma.
The more commonly injured areas of the body are the ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows, and spine. Remember that you should discuss any exercise program with your doctor of chiropractic before undertaking such activities.
Many sports injuries are successfully treated with natural conservative approaches. Treatment will focus initially on helping the pain, but will always include an education to help prevent future occurrences.
