Sports Injuries

What is a sports injury?

A sports injury is any injury that occurs during a fitness-related activity. Mustang Chiropractic routinely sees patients with injuries sustained during youth sports, especially football, but a sports injury can occur in any athletic situation, like weightlifting, running, or even just stretching.

There’s a common and dangerous misunderstanding that only professional athletes need to worry about getting treatment for their sports injuries. No matter where you suffer your sports injury, be it in a professional athletics league or jogging around your neighborhood, your body benefits from professional treatment during the rehabilitation process. 

What are some types of sports injuries?

Some of the sports injuries that occur most frequently include:

  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Rotator cuff damage
  • Swollen muscles
  • Stress fracture
  • Knee injuries
  • Dislocations
  • Shin splints
  • Sprains
  • Strains

Sports injuries can happen anywhere on your body, but Mustang Chiropractic tends to see them more frequently in the neck, lower back, and extremities.

If you’re suffering from any of these conditions, schedule a visit with Mustang Chiropractic immediately so you can begin treatment. Seeking professional help when you injured can help improve your body's functioning and alleviate discomfort. 

How do you diagnose sports injuries?

The team at Mustang Chiropractic uses a few different diagnostic tools to assess the extent and nature of your sports injury. They might perform a physical exam by gently manipulating the soft tissues and joints in your damaged area, and they’ll also likely ask you questions about your injury and your health history.

Mustang Chiropractic is also the only chiropractic practice in Mustang that uses digital X-rays to help diagnose your condition. Digital X-rays give the team a more detailed look at your injury, which can enable them to treat it with more precision.
