The neck and lower back are especially prone to injury during sports. Athletes who run or lift weights regularly can easily injure their lower back due to the repetitive movements involved in running and lifting. A chiropractor can perform procedures to adjust the spine so that the vertebrae are lined up correctly. This will ensure that spine is properly aligned and less prone to injury. Visiting a chiropractor can help you if you have suffered any sports injuries and also prevent them in the future. Our sports chiropractor offers specific techniques for athletes as well as tips to avoid injury.
Dr. Allan Ettenson has extensive experience treating sports injuries in Etobicoke and will get you back to performing at your best. Chiropractic treatments can provide rehabilitation from sports injuries and restore proper function to the spine and joints as well as strengthen muscles.
Chiropractic treatment involves very specific spinal or joint adjustments in combination with resistance training and exercise. This will help improve joint health, muscle tone and coordination. Some patients can be helped simply through a variety of exercises that they can complete at home while others require office treatment and the use of specialized equipment.
Running can expose athletes to a wide variety of potential injuries. During a one mile run, a runner’s feet strike the ground an average of 800 to 1200 times with the force of two to three times the runner’s body weight. Because running involves such a repetitive motion, this brings the potential for a number of overuse injuries.
Running injuries most often occur in the foot, lower leg or the knee. Most running injuries are not serious and many can be prevented. It is best to consult with a professional if you experience any type of pain while running as this is most likely a sign of stress. Seeing a chiropractor can prevent future injuries. It is very important to identify the underlying cause of the pain or injury so that proper treatment or preventative measures can be taken.
