Sports Chiropractic in Holland
No matter the age or level, if you lead an active lifestyle, then you know sports injuries are part of the game. Treating sports injuries is one of the many services of our practice. Sports injuries in particular, often require prompt treatment and ongoing therapy, depending on the severity of the injury.
Each sport and fitness activity presents its own particular type of sports injury due to the kind of field or court and the physical motions of the players. Football players often experience concussions, and injuries to knees, ankles, Achilles tendons, and toes, as well as fingers and wrists because of the direct contact inherent to the sport.
Basketball players most commonly suffer injuries to ankles, knees, and their lower and upper backs because they often shift direction quickly and play on hardwood floors. Soccer players and runners often suffer similar types of injuries, such as groin strains, and injuries to their legs (shin splints, hamstring strains), ankles, and Achilles tendons because of the endurance required for these activities. Swimmers most often experience injuries to their shoulders because of the repetitive nature of the various types of strokes.
