Playing sports and exercising regularly is a great way to spend your time. As a busy chiropractor in North London I see a lot of patients come in with sporting injuries. They ask if a chiropractor can help and of course the answer is yes.
Sporting injuries can cause people a lot of pain and issues in later life and it is therefore important we look after ourselves in this regard. There are a few things we can do to help us look after ourselves and the most important one is to reduce the chance of a sporting injury. As a chiropractor in North London, I believe by staying fit, stretching/warming up and knowing your limits we can avoid a lot of injuries.
Prevention is all well and good but sometimes there is no avoiding a sporting injury and treatment will be needed.
Broadly speaking, sports injuries can be classified as either traumatic or overuse type injuries. Traumatic injuries are usually caused in contact type sports such as football or rugby.
Overuse injuries are sustained as a result of repetitive actions being undertaken. This type of injury is common amongst runners, cyclists, people who do yoga, as well as those playing sports like golf, tennis or bowling.
The treatment for any sporting injury will depend upon the degree of damage sustained by the patient and the type of injury. We also take into account the patient’s age.
After a visit to my chiropractic clinic in North London we would assess you and start you on a recovery programme using our knowledge and expertise.
If you have any sporting injuries please get in touch with us as we offer a lot of help and advice to get you back up and running as soon as possible. You can contact us at the Muswell Hill Chiropractic clinic on 020 8442 008.
