Repeated stresses can lead to a slight loss of proper movement in the bones of your spine (vertebrae) and joints, which in turn can interfere with the healthy working of your muscles and nerves. Your skeleton is a whole unit, and problems with the pelvis can often affect the knee and in turn affect the ankle. A similar “knock on effect” can be demonstrated by neck problems leading to shoulder, elbow then wrist problems. This is known as a “kinematic chain”. Injuries can become chronic when they are ignored and left untreated.
Examples of common sporting injuries include:
- Hamstring and calf strains
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder pain
- Low back and neck pain
- Knee problems
Your Chiropractic consultation will help to establish the primary cause of your sports injury. Treatment aims to restore normal function to your joints and muscles as well as your nervous system, which aims to increase your control, co-ordination and muscle strength.
