Sports injuries can occur by accident or from overuse of joints, tendons and muscles. In organized sports, over 50% of these injuries occur during practice sessions, rather than actual games. Sports that rank among the highest of reported sports injuries are football, soccer, basketball and hockey. The injuries sustained from participating in these sports are often referred to as acute.
It’s always best to seek the advice of a healthcare professional who is knowledgeable in both the prevention and treatment of sports injuries. A chiropractor can diagnose, assess and prescribe rehabilitative treatment for an array of sports-related injuries, especially those that involve sprains to joints and tendons, muscle strains, and non-paralyzing spinal injuries.
