Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries in Boston, MA

If you’re an athlete, either amateur or professional, you know that sports can take a toll on your body. Whether you’re clashing with hockey players on the ice, putting your knees through the impact of running long distances, or twisting your body to shoot hoops on the basketball court, sports and exercise have the potential to cause painful injuries or lasting problems.

Chiropractic care offers a way to keep doing what you love while protecting your body and rehabilitating more quickly after an injury. At Charles Street Family Chiropractic in Boston, MA, we provide chiropractic care for sports injuries to help you recover more quickly and more fully. By focusing on spinal alignment, our skilled chiropractors can reduce irritation of nerves, shorten the healing time from minor injuries, and help prevent further injury.

Types of sports injuries treated

There are a wide range of sports injuries we can treat at Charles Street Family Chiropractic, from tennis elbow to muscle strains. Some of the most common sports injuries we see include:

  • Tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow: This pain crops up on the outside part of the elbow near the bone, stemming from a tear or rupture in the tendon. It is colloquially known as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, because those sports tend to put significant strain on the elbow joint, leading to this problem over time.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury that develops in the wrist or elbow. Chiropractic care in the wrist, arm, and spine can help alleviate pain and improve healing.
  • Sprains at the knee, shoulder, or elbow: During sprains, the bones in the joint typically shift out of alignment, making it difficult to recover. Chiropractic care can assist with realigning the joint and improving recovery.
  • Back pain and neck pain: Chiropractic care is most well-known for treating back pain and neck pain. By realigning the spine, we can alleviate pressure on the nerves and help relieve chronic pain or pain from an injury.

At Charles Street Family Chiropractic, we treat all these sports injuries and more. Simply call to set up an initial consultation and treatment.

How chiropractic treats sports injuries

Chiropractic care centers on adjusting and realigning your spine, helping relieve tension in the body and clear the way for faster healing. While some people think that means chiropractic care can only help with back pain, its influence spreads far beyond the spinal area. The spine is key to both the structure of your body and your nervous system. When it is out of alignment, it can affect your entire body, causing symptoms from headaches to shoulder pain to foot problems. Aligning your spine will take pressure off your nervous system and ensure your system is in the optimal position for quick healing.

This alignment process can also help prevent further sports injuries by ensuring your body is in alignment while you jump, run, swim, or cycle. A properly aligned body can better absorb impact and recover from repetitive motions. Routine visits to the chiropractor will help keep your body in alignment as you use it, allowing you to keep doing the things you love.
