Sports injuries are common in today's active society and weekend warrior sport enthusiasts. Due to increases in athletes' size, speed, power and strength, greater stress is placed upon an athlete's muscles, ligaments and tendons. The key to treating a chronic sports injury properly is to identify the complete cause not simply to treat the injured area. If a individual suffers from multiple chronic sports injuries, dehydration must be ruled out. This is found with people who sweat more than average. Increasing water intake is good but not the whole picture. Electrolyte balance is very important because you are also losing sodium, potassium, chloride, and bicarbonate. When the body is dehydrated and imbalanced from an electrolyte standpoint, pulled muscles are very common.

 Chronic sports injuries are often due to overuse syndromes or muscular imbalance. When the bones are misaligned, the muscles around and attached to them are unbalanced. That is where chiropractic can prevent sports injuries. A stable, aligned body resists strains and sprains. Injuries such as tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons) and arthritis (joint inflammation) can be avoided by stable and aligned joints. If playing sports are important to you, then Seaman Chiropractic Center can be your best friend. I can help you avoid future injuries or help you deal with present injuries.
