Sports Injury in Littleton

Chiropractor Littleton CO Sports Injury Relief

Have you suffered a sports injury in Littleton? Have you heard the names Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Aaron Rodgers, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, and Kareem Abdul-Jubbar before? These are some of the elite athletes who attribute a large amount of their success to the chiropractic care they received throughout their careers.

In addition to the success experienced by these world-class athletes, you may have noticed chiropractors along the sidelines of NFL football games and the most recent Olympic events. Both of these organizations have recognized how vital chiropractic is to their teams' success and integrated chiropractic doctors into their sports medicine team.

Not only can chiropractic help world-famous athletes excel, but it has also been shown to provide short and long term benefits for entry-level, high school, and college participants. Amplify Chiropractic has been providing care to local amateur and professional sports teams for years and with this article, will inform you how you can benefit.


Suffering from a Sports Injury in Littleton?

Sports injuries can be knee pain, wrist pain, ankle pain, concussions, tears or strains, among many other issues. These injuries are classified as sports injuries because the issue evolved from a form of physical activity whether it has to do with a competitive sport, going to the gym, or even going for a run.

There are direct sports injuries and indirect sports injuries. An example of a direct sports injury could be shoulder pain after you were body checked into the boards while playing hockey or wrist pain due to using too large of weights in the gym.

An example of an indirect sports injury could be rolling your ankle while running but your knee is what suffers the pain. This occurs when another joint in your body must compensate for an injured joint and take on more than its typical role.

No matter what the situation is, physical activity is an important factor in everyone’s lives as without the ability to move we are unable to do simple things such as walking or writing.


How Can Chiropractic Help Littleton Athletes?

Littleton athletes routinely and continually put their bodies through an extremely high level of physical stress. These stressors are different than what we experience as a result of too much schoolwork

or demands from the boss at work. Sports participation often involves quick starts and stops, explosive jumping or running, collisions, and atypical body postures that put added demands on the body's physical structure. Therefore, whether you are a football player, wrestler, golfer, or runner, chiropractic can provide the assistance your body needs to be able to adapt to these added stresses. Often, these unusual stresses cause the bones in our back to come out of place.

The effects of these changes create a cascade that often leads to loss of motion, flexibility, and speed while increasing the chances of developing headaches or predisposing the body to future athletic-related injuries. For example, many long-distance runners have been shown to develop chronic cases of tendonitis and pain throughout the joints in their legs. Typically, they are prescribed a pain killer to mask the symptoms of pain, providing short term relief. If pain killers were the real solution to the problem, why would they have to be continually taken?

The truth is that many sports-related injuries begin due to nerve interference caused by misalignments in our joints, primarily the spine. Our chiropractors at Amplify Chiropractic in Littleton are specially trained at removing this type of interference. When this nerve interference is removed, the body experiences an increase in blood flow, higher immune system function, proper motor pattern firing, and overall better health. As a result, athletes receiving care at our clinic have noticed increased flexibility, speed, agility, and power during sports participation.

These types of results have been seen at chiropractic clinics all across the country. In fact, a recent study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Research and Investigation showed that as much as 32% of athletes receiving chiropractic care experienced these results and an even higher percentage showed a decrease in the number of injuries sustained during sports participation.


When Should an Athlete See a Chiropractor?

Just as people get a flu shot at the beginning of the year to try to prevent getting sick, athletes of all ranks shouldn’t wait to see a chiropractor until after an injury has occurred. While chiropractic has been proven to be an excellent source for injury rehabilitation and healing, it is an even better resource for preventing the damage from happening. Chiropractors view the body as a whole, taking into account all aspects of health.

Our team at Amplify Chiropractic has the resources to provide adjustive procedures, physical therapy, and soft tissue massage to address the nervous, skeletal, muscular, and ligamentous systems. Through this approach, the body is allowed to function at its optimal level, keeping you off the bench sidelined with injuries throughout the season.
