If you’ve taken up the challenge of amateur or professional sports, you should be prepared for an occasional injury. Even if you take precautions for safe play, there’s always the risk of injury. Fortunately, you can rely on ChiroCare in North Greenbush, NY, to help with sports injury treatment. These FAQs compiled by Dr. Stone explain more about sports injuries and the benefits of chiropractic care.
How do sports injuries occur?
If you skip your warmup or fail to use appropriate safety gear for your sport, you increase your risk of suffering a sports injury. Walking, stretching, or exercising before your game will warm up your muscles before you play to protect you against muscle strain. Pushing yourself too hard can also result in injury. Injuries also occur from sports collisions on the field. A collision can cause neck or back pain, subluxations, sprains and strains, and misaligned bones or joints.
