Sports Injury FAQ

A sports injury can cause a lot of pain. But it's more than just physical. These injuries also produce mental and emotional struggles for athletes. Luckily, Aloha Wellness can alleviate most of these issues. Serving North Central San Antonio, TX, our clinic can get you back into the game. Our experienced chiropractor can also grant you some peace of mind. To help, Aloha Wellness answers four common questions about sports injury treatment.

What causes sports injuries?

Many factors may contribute to a sports injury. Acute injuries result from a single, sudden incident. Examples include sprains or hyperextensions. However, chronic injuries, like stress fractures, develop over time. Chronic injuries are often caused by improper form or overuse.

What can I do to care for my sports injury at home?

Not every sports injury requires special treatment. For minor issues, just add a little "RICE." This method incorporates rest, ice, compression, and elevation to reduce swelling and ease your pain. Yet it's most effective in the first 48 hours only. If symptoms persist, contact our chiropractor immediately.

What types of sports injury treatment can a chiropractor offer?

It starts with an assessment. After diagnosing your issue, Aloha Wellness will build a specialized treatment plan. The most common component is a chiropractic adjustment. This realigns the body's musculoskeletal structure to speed up recovery. A deep tissue massage or physical therapy may also be recommended.

How can I prevent a sports injury?

It's impossible to predict when an injury may occur. Acute injuries are especially difficult. But there are steps you can follow to minimize the risk of damage. Never begin a workout "cold." Stretching and warming up at least 10 minutes before any exercise is key. Then, build the intensity slowly. This limits the threat of pulls, tears, and strains. Finally, wear all protective and safety gear as directed.
