We are also here to help you with some answers to some common sports injury questions that you might have.

How Do I Know I Have a Sports Injury?

You could have one of two types of sports injuries – a chronic one or an acute one. A chronic one is something that happens over the course of time – you might start off running and feel fine at first, but the pain could get worse as the weeks go by. An acute injury happens immediately, and you may see bruising or swelling.

How Long Does a Sports Injury Take to Heal?

It all depends on what type of injury you have and how severe it is. A minor injury can heal quickly, while broken bones and muscle tears need more time to heal. Talk with a chiropractor on our team about what kind of timeline they see for your injury to heal.

How Can I Prevent Sports Injuries?

You can do a variety of exercises and stretches to help strengthen certain muscles and keep them loose while you are out playing. If you are playing something with body contact, know how to take a hit and always follow the proper form. Also, be sure to warm up before hand and use the proper equipment while playing.
