Sprains, Strains and pain. Most injuries involve damage to the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage) as well as the joints and bones of the body. Immediately following an injury the body sends inflammatory cells to the area to initiate healing of the trauma. In the acute stage of healing there is increased sensitivity to pain, increased swelling, and guarded motion.
If untreated this process will lead to increased scar formation, decreased flexibility, and decreased range of motion; resulting in a decrease in performance. This sets up the body increased risk for re-injury and to develop chronic conditions.
Chiropractic care can help speed the transition through the acute stages of healing getting you back to work or on the field quicker.
