Sports Injury Rehabilitation Treatment
Chiropractor in Salem, OR: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting the body through rigorous activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a Dr. Whitmire can help patients to heal faster when they have suffered sports injuries and can also help patients to prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity they are doing or what sport they are playing in. As an active person, it is important for the athlete to take precautionary measures, however, sometimes injuries happen and they are often the result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Dr. Whitmire sees a lot of children and teens that tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if these injuries are left untreated, they can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and decrease in athletic abilities.
