Sports Injury FAQ

At Idaho Chiropractic Group in Boise, we offer a wide range of chiropractic services, including sports injury treatment. Injuries can happen during any sporting activity, whether during a professional event or while playing in your backyard. At our state-of-the-art facility, we treat sports injuries due to collisions, repetitive strain, or other accidents while playing on the field. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing our patients the care they need to get back to doing the activities they love. Here are a few common questions patients have about sports injuries and how chiropractic care can help.

Why do sports injuries occur? 

There are different types of sports injuries. We see injuries due to a specific incident or a series of repetitive or overuse activities. Repetitive stress sports injuries can happen if you are repeatedly doing a certain action for a long time. These actions are mostly done while playing sports but also be sustained while training. We also see patients suffering from pain or discomfort due to poor stretching habits before athletic activities.

How does chiropractic care treat sports injuries?

For treatment, our chiropractors will first diagnose the injury to determine the ideal treatment plan. Once the treatment plan has been decided, we will use different techniques, using manual adjustments or instrument-aided methods to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, minimize pain, and help the injury recover faster. Chiropractic techniques can improve joint mobility and flexibility. If the injury is a spinal injury, we have a lot of experience in the alignment of the vertebrae to ease the pressure on the nerves and help alleviate pain.

How does chiropractic care prevent sports injuries?

Our chiropractors will work with you on posture, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle changes for prevention. These actions will ensure your body can protect itself from injury. Posture irregularities are common issues when it comes to sports injuries. We can help you correct your posture to ease the stress on your body. Our chiropractors can help improve your posture with non-invasive techniques personalized for your unique needs. This ensures no excessive stress is placed on your body.
