Common Sports Injuries Seen In Our Maple Grove Clinic
It is easy for people who engage in athletic activities to overexert themselves and cause an injury. Sports-related injuries are especially common for people who are training for competitions and events like marathons for example. Here at Maple Grove Chiropractic, in Maple Grove MN, Dr. Zaker and Dr. Blomdahl address do more than treat sports injuries, our chiropractors work to educate each patient who comes into our facility for the treatment of a sports injury about the nature of their injury and how they can avoid reinjury. Here is some information about some of the most common sports injury cases we see in our facility.
A Pulled Muscle Can Be Serious
A pulled muscle is a very common sports injury found in people who engage in athletics. Several factors can contribute to a person sustaining this type of injury. People can overexert their muscles by not taking the time to rejuvenate between workouts and become more susceptible to pulled muscles. People who fail to warm up properly before exercising are at higher risk of pulling a muscle. It is important for people who sustain a pulled muscle injury to see our chiropractor to help mitigate any permanent damage.
A Sprained Ankle Is A Common Sports Injury
Here at Maple Grove Chiropractic, our chiropractors also see several clients with strained muscles. Many people make the mistake of thinking that sprained ankles will eventually heal on their own with the use of ice and anti-inflammatories. It is also important to understand that the inflammation associated with a sprained ankle can cause other complications if gone untreated. People who suspect they have a sprained ankle should come in to be evaluated by a chiropractor to ensure they get the right diagnosis and treatment.
