How Safe is Chiropractic Treatment for Sports Injuries?

Athletes who sustain sports injuries are often recommended to professionals such as Morley Chiropractic Clinic for ongoing rehabilitation. Even non-athletes who experience an injury of some form can benefit from chiropractic treatments. Those who may not be familiar with the practice may have questions with regards to the safety of chiropractics. So, in this article, Morley Chiropractic Clinic are going to discuss the safety of chiropractic treatment for sports injuries.

Are the methods safe?

Chiropractics as a practice is a proven method for muscular and joint rehabilitation. Upon a consultation, the professional would examine and identify the root of the issue. All practice is compliant with the Department of Health’s musculoskeletal service framework and European guidelines. We also have access to a diverse team of staff with varying qualifications, specialising in a variety of areas, from pilates to acupuncture.

Will it aggravate the injury?

Whilst there may be some stiffness or a dull ache shortly after receiving treatment, over time this should recede and facilitate movement and flexibility. For professional athletes who have sustained a sports injury, it will be important to speak to your coach or trainer before receiving any treatment to make sure chiropractic treatment is the correct method for you.

How long will it take to heal?

The length of recovery time for sports injuries can really vary depending on the degree of damage caused, and the individual. Joint injuries tend to take longer than injuries to muscle tissue, but the rehabilitation of both can be accelerated through chiropractic treatment.
