Back Pain Relief Tulsa for Sports Chiropractic Related Injuries

Marshall Tulsa Chiropractic specializes in the non-drug Tulsa Chiropractic Treatment of musculoskeletal problems, including joint sprains and disk injuries, and administering. To some extent, the chiropractic approach to sports injuries overlaps that of traditional medical care: A chiropractor’s initial patient examination includes standard orthopedic and neurological tests to diagnose whether a particular pain is due to a strain, sprain or disk problem. When needed, chiropractors use x-ray to screen for fractures and other bone disorders, such as osteoporosis. Chiropractic treatment of sports injuries often includes widely used physical therapies such as ice for swelling and inflammation; and heat, ultrasound or electronic muscle stimulation for muscle strains and spasms.

Two contributions chiropractic has made to sports medicine include hands-on adjustment of spinal and other joints (to maintain a full range of motion) and a strong emphasis on the overall structural balance of the body. For example, when a muscle or joint is injured, the body naturally compensates, attempting to maintain balance and protect itself by tightening other muscles and joints. Chiropractic adjustments help restore the natural balance that was present before the injury.

Sports Chiropractic Treatment

To address your problem specifically, the persistent pain in your shoulder could be the result of a direct injury to the shoulder; it could also reflect your body’s compensation for spinal-joint movement restrictions in your neck. Similarly, pain in the hip could come from the hip itself, or be the result of lower back, ankle or knee problems. The key point is that the various parts of the body are interconnected: If a doctor examines and treats only the area of pain, he or she could be dealing with the symptom rather than the cause. For example, I have seen many cases of knee pain that cleared when I administered chiropractic adjustments to the lower back.

Within the past decade a number of studies published in the British Medical Journal have demonstrated the effectiveness of manual manipulation (the majority of which is done by chiropractors) for back, neck and shoulder pain. Interestingly, the treatment for shoulder pain involved not only manipulation of the shoulder itself, but also of nearby areas in the neck and upper back.

Research such as this has contributed to a climate where chiropractic now enjoys far-greater acceptance than in the past. In fact, chiropractic is now part of the sports-medicine program of the U.S. Olympic Committee.

Of course, you don’t have to be an Olympian to benefit from chiropractic care. Each year, 20 million Americans go to the chiropractor, 90 percent of them seeking treatment for musculoskeletal problems like back pain, neck pain, other joint and muscle pains and headaches.

In short, while mild, temporary soreness after exertion is nothing to worry about, persistent aches and pains are a sign that you are overstressing your muscles and joints. It’s important not to push your body to the limit while in pain, because this increases your risk of further injury. If your athletic activities are causing more than temporary pain, a sports injury chiropractor may be able to help

Football Injuries and Chiropractic Care

Most muscles that are injured during physical activity are attached to the bones of the body. If the bones are out of normal alignment then the muscles are more likely to be injured due to excessive stretching and over extension. A sports injury chiropractor can help maintain and re-align the bones of the body which can help speed healing time and possibly prevent problems in the future.

Injury is most common among younger players. Younger people don’t notice pain as much or they have taught themselves to push past the irritation. This can be a mistake as a small irritation could lead to problems down the road. Chiropractor Tulsa services provide a way for players to continue playing and teach them to take care of their body. Make sure that if you feeling any type of pain after a game that you come to see us. Allow our staff to take care of you and make sure that you can get back out on the field.

Chiropractic Care Can Help Athletes Perform Better

When physical activity is performed by the human body many things are at work. Signals are sent from your bodies control center, the brain, to the rest of the body. For example, a signal can be sent from the brain to your leg to tell it to move forward during running. This signal travels from the brain through the spinal cord where it exits through a nerve to the muscle that controls your leg. If there are misalignments in the spine these signals may be weakened or disrupted. Chiropractic checkups will eliminate the problems that can arise from a misaligned spine during physical activity.

Tulsa professional can help is by aligning the muscle groups. What do muscles attach to? They are attached to bones with tendons. If there are two bones misaligned then there is at least one muscle that is pulled or stretched further than it should be. A muscle could also be shortened more than it should be. It is easy to see how this could cause an injury. A pulled hamstring from a misaligned pelvis is one of many examples.

When to Seek a Sports Injury Chiropractor

At the first sign of injury or pain get your spine checked right away. Catching small problems before they turn into big ones! The sooner a problem is dwelt with, the sooner the pain will be gone and normal activity can resume. Take care of your body and keep training hard!
