Sports injuries are a common occurrence for athletes of all levels. While some injuries can be treated at home with rest and ice, others may require the care of a chiropractor. When it comes to sports injuries, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage. At Elite Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, CA, our chiropractors treat all types of sports injuries. We will work with you to create a treatment plan to help you get back to your sport as soon as possible. Here are some of the most common sports injuries we treat:
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the most common knee injuries, particularly in athletes who play contact sports. ACL tears can range from mild to severe and can cause pain, swelling, and instability in the affected knee. Treatment for ACL injuries typically includes chiropractic care, physical therapy, and rehabilitation exercises. In addition, athletes may need to wear a knee brace or other support device to stabilize the knee during healing.
Shin splints are a common overuse injury that affects runners and other athletes who put repetitive stress on their lower legs. Shin splints cause pain and tenderness along the shinbone (tibia) and can often be accompanied by swelling. Shin splints are treated by resting, icing, and chiropractic adjustment. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help stretch and strengthen the muscles and tissues around the shin.
Tennis elbow is a type of injury that results from overuse and manifests as pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow. Repetitive motions often put stress on the muscles and tendons attached to the elbow, causing pain. Treatment for tennis elbow often includes chiropractic care, physical therapy, and rehabilitation exercises. In some cases, an elbow brace will be recommended to support the elbow as it heals.
Plantar fasciitis is a frequent overuse condition that causes discomfort and soreness in the heel and arch of the foot. The pain is usually caused by repetitive stress on the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs from the heel to the toes. Common treatments for plantar fasciitis are chiropractic care, physical therapy, and rehabilitation exercises. A night splint or orthotic shoe insert may help stretch the plantar fascia during healing in some cases.
