Chiropractic treatment for sports injuries in the Reno, NV area

Sports injuries are common, and chiropractic is an essential part of care that professional athletes receive. Natural pain remedies such as chiropractic are popular forms of treatment among professional and Olympic athletes. If that doesn’t tell you that chiropractic is an effective treatment for sports injuries, we don’t know what will.

Chiropractic care is a natural and effective treatment that athletes of all kinds can benefit from. Sports injuries are most commonly caused by improper stretching and lack of treating an already existing injury. Many times, athletes will keep quiet about an injury, and assure themselves that “it will pass” so that they don’t have to sit the bench. However, this can ultimately lead to chronic problems if not treated.

Dr. Curtis Potts is an experienced chiropractor in sports injuries and can advise you and treat your sports injury effectively with chiropractic care. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with your Reno chiropractor, Dr. Curtis Potts, so that you can improve your health and performance as soon as possible.

Common sports injuries and chiropractic solutions

There are two basic types of sports injuries: trauma and overuse. A trauma injury may be the result of a trauma inflicted by a collision, a slip or a fall. An overuse injury occurs when the repetitive use of a muscle group or joint in the same area causes inflammation or injury.

Dr. Curtis Potts, our lead chiropractor, is trained and educated to treat sports injuries effectively. When consulting with you about your injury, we can determine whether a chiropractic service would benefit you. We will determine the best way to heal you and relieve pain that you may be experiencing. Chiropractic treatment for sports injuries can range from massage therapy to joint manipulation, to special exercises that target the problem areas and help build strength.

The intense nature of sports is a breeding ground for injuries and problems. There are very natural ways we can fix these problems without having to resort to pain medicine and/or surgeries. Sometimes our bodies just need some therapy and special treatment so that we can function at our best. Allow us to introduce you to these natural and most effective healing experiences.

Some tips from your top local chiropractor

We’re sure if you have a sports coach or a personal trainer to coach you through your fit and athletic life. However, if you’re training on your own, you should certainly take caution and pay attention to your body. Too often, athletes discount the importance of some of the simplest standards. Something that you may think is very simple could turn into a real problem if you choose to ignore it. So here are some tips from your local Reno Chiropractor:

  • Always precede a sporting activity with a warm-up session
  • Stretch thoroughly before and after your athletic session
  • Don’t over-stretch yourself
  • Increase the frequency or duration of workouts slowly and progressively
  • Be attentive to your stress and fatigue levels when working out
  • Consult a coach or trainer when you think you may have an issue (no matter how small)
