Sports Injury and Your Chiropractor
by Broughton Grange & Guilsborough (Kettering) based Chiropractor Fiona MacRae
The most common causes of sports injuries are trauma or repetitive motions.
Injuries may damage any of the body tissues, and repetitive motions can cause tendonitis and muscle damage. Tendons attach muscles to bone and any “soft tissue” injuries however caused can result in the skeleton being put under undue stress. Once the skeleton is misaligned, the soft tissues try to compensate, often leading to further imbalance. Muscular pain and tension caused by injuries can cause postural changes which can quickly worsen the condition.
The McTimoney Chiropractic treatment can help realign and rebalance the body to relieve pain and discomfort and it can help to increase mobility. When the skeleton is correctly aligned, the body is best placed to take its weight, so reducing the likelihood of further strain, pain and injury.
