Types of Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are one of two types of injury; acute or chronic. An acute injury is the type of injury that suddenly occurs, such as a strained back, sprained ankle or fractured hand. The symptoms of an acute injury often include swelling, pain, inability to put weight on the foot and/or leg or the joints and bones are visibly out of position. Chronic injuries are injuries that occur over an extended period of time and are generally characterized by intense pain, swelling and dull aching while resting. The most common sports injuries treated by a chiropractor include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Knee injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Shoulder injuries

Therapies/Techniques for Treatment

When suffering with a sports injury, the most important thing is to receive the treatment most effective at relieving your pain. Along with adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy and exercise recommendations, there are a wide range of treatment methods and techniques that your chiropractor in Dallas can provide, including:

  • Graston technique which is a soft tissue myofascial technique, that focuses on breaking up adhesions/connections between the muscles and fascia (connective tissue surrounding muscles). One of the fascia functions is allowing muscles and other structures to smoothly slide over each other. When adhesions occur, the sliding is difficult, causing pain, irritation, inflammation and restrictions in muscle movement. Your chiropractor has specialized tools used to break up the adhesion that is preventing proper movement.
  • Kinesio taping looks like simple, colored bandages, but it is actually specialized tape that is often used to stimulate or relax muscles. Kinesio tape can also help to promote better circulation, reduce inflammation, facilitate healing and prevent injuries. It is often used to treat sports injuries, such as rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, ankle sprains and back strains.
  • Active release technique is the type of soft tissue treatment for sports injuries, such as torn ligament, injured muscles, tendons, and fascia. It is a type of massage that uses precise, directed tension and specific movements to help smooth movement of tissue, restore function and break up scar tissue.
