Sports Injuries 

 

There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to play your sport, here at Bristol Chiropractic Sports and Family Clinic our chiropractors and massage therapists play a range of sports and can empathise with the need of getting back and competing a.s.a.p!

 

Treating a sports injury sooner rather than later may help speed up recovery and improve your game, with patients commenting on their increased performance through improved balance and coordination.

 

Chiropractic can help with some of your sporting injuries; 

  • Joint Pains, muscle cramps, and spasms. 

  • Back and neck pain

  • Elbow injuries/tennis elbow that is related to the biomechanics of the shoulder, upper back and neck problems. 

  • Rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, impingement are some of the shoulder disorders we can help with. 

  • Acute ankle sprains/strains 

  • Acute plantar fascitis

 

Your chiropractor during the initial consultation, we take a full medical history, investigate lifestyle, posture etc they may want to refer you for an x-ray if they feel this will help with your diagnosis and treatment plan. 

 

What therapy is commonly used? 

The treatment, depending on severity and site of injury, along with diagnosis can include ultrasound, massage, manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue massage, cross friction, and athletic stretching. 

Most importantly we build progressive resistant exercises, core exercises, and rehabilitation into your programme to strengthen the area ready for your up and coming match.

 

Advice is also crucial in the rehabilitation process, advice will be given regarding immediate pain relief, using ice and heat, orthotics, braces, and supports, all dependent on your injury.
