- Tendonitis (often in the biceps, quadriceps, patella, or Achilles tendons)
- Shin splints (also known as medial tibial compression syndrome)
- Nerve Impingement syndromes (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica)
- Whiplash (neck strain, often caused by contact sports or slip and falls)
Why People Get Sports Injuries
You may be starting a brand new sport or exercise program, or you could be an advanced athlete. No matter what your ability level is, an injury can happen to you. The most common risk factors include:
- Over-training and inadequate rest/recovery
- Poor sleep, nutrition, and hydration
- Poor technique and body mechanics
- Weak and dysfunctional core
- Mobility restrictions (often due to old scar tissue from previous injuries)
- High impact or high contact activities
How Our Alpharetta Chiropractor Resolves Sports Injury
Dr. Alex Paulk and his colleagues, including licensed massage therapists and certified personal trainers, work tirelessly to get to the root of every sports injury. The team does this by looking beyond the injury and finding out about the people experiencing them. What are their stress management, nutrition, personal beliefs, training style, movement, and additional characteristics like?
By identifying underlying contributing factors and addressing these as well as the symptoms of sports injury, including pain, stiffness, immobility, swelling, and inflammation, long lasting pain relief is possible. It's done through techniques such as chiropractic adjustments, massage, and corrective exercises, all fully individualized to meet your unique needs and goals.
