Injuries sustained during sports or very strenuous exercises are called sports injuries. Most of these are musculoskeletal injuries though any part of the body can be affected during such impacts. Immediate treatment comes in the form of the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) therapy which can relieve the pain and lower the swelling at the moment. Pain meds are also administered to help players deal with the pain. But none of these are long term solutions and you need advanced chiropractic
treatment for sport injuries if you want to attain comprehensive healing.
Sports injuries can be caused by any number of factors from improper gear, not warming up or stretching enough before exercises, poor training exercises and accidents. They result in sharp and sudden pain which leads to inability to move, to lift weights, and then progress to chronic and dull aching pain which is constant and debilitating. Acute cases also lead to surgeries which again involve quite a bit of post-operative time and care.
