Sports Injury Chiropractic

Sports Injury Chiropractic

You injure your shoulder at baseball practice or land on your ankle wrong while dancing. Unfortunately, sprains, strains, and injuries are common for athletes of all kinds. That’s why about 90% of all world-class athletes see a chiropractor to help treat and prevent sports injury. If you’re an athlete in Greenbelt, MD or the surrounding areas, visit Greenbelt Wellness and Physical Therapy for an examination today. We’ll do a full evaluation and create a course of treatment catered to your specific needs.

One common sports injury is whiplash. Whiplash can make your neck sore, tender, stiff and hard to move. It can also cause headaches, dizziness and radiating pain throughout your arms, back and shoulders. Luckily, chiropractic care can treat all of these symptoms and shorten your recovery time.

Aside from the neck, it’s also common for athletes to injure their knees, hamstrings, ankles, shoulders, back, hips, elbows and more. If this sounds like you, visit a chiropractor as soon as you can. When it comes to sports injuries, it’s critical to get treatment so that you can get back to doing what you love.
