Sports Medicine Q & A

by Bradley Mouroux, DC, CCSP, CPAK

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is an area of medicine that’s focused on the special needs of athletes, including the treatment of injuries sustained during sports or training as well as non-sports injuries that have an impact on an athlete’s ability to compete or train. It also focuses on helping athletes become stronger and learn how to train and perform better so they can avoid injuries in the future. Chiropractors are trained in musculoskeletal injuries and the techniques necessary to restore normal function in the bones, joints, muscles, and other tissues making them effective partners in helping athletes of all levels – pros, students, and weekend warriors – get back into the “game.”

What kinds of injuries and conditions can be treated with a program of sports medicine?

Sports medicine uses an array of techniques and treatments that can be tailored to suit the needs and treatment goals of the individual patient. Some of the more common injuries that can be treated with sports medicine include:

  • muscle strains and injuries
  • ligament injuries
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • plantar fasciitis
  • tennis elbow and golfer's elbow
  • shin splints
  • hamstring injuries
  • rotator cuff injuries and other shoulder problems
  • knee injuries
  • hip pain
  • back and neck pain and strain
  • other injuries sustained from direct and indirect sports-related injuries

What is included in sports therapy?

Sports therapy is very adaptable and can include many different treatments to help athletes recover following injuries or even after surgery. Some of the most common techniques include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy, and spinal decompression therapy. Before treatment begins, a comprehensive examination and assessment will be performed to evaluate the patient’s overall health as well as the condition being treated to ensure the most effective treatment options are used. Hands-on evaluations, active and passive exercises, diagnostic imaging, and other techniques may be used to evaluate the patient before treatment begins and throughout the course of therapy to ensure therapy remains optimized for the patient.

How can spinal adjustments help with sports-related injuries?

Spinal realignment helps restore the normal position of the vertebrae, relieving inflammation, irritation, and nerve compression that can cause pain and interfere with optimal function and performance. Plus, it helps promote circulation and stimulate natural healing by providing injured tissues with oxygen and other nutrients necessary for healing.
