When the body becomes injured because of sports or training, common symptoms that can occur are:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Depending on what type of sport you play or activity you do, injuries will vary. Some common injuries can be:
Neck Injuries- Such as whiplash, occur when the neck is quickly and forcefully pushed forwards or backwards in a whipping motion. Contact sports should be approached with as much caution as possible because of the higher risk for whiplash. Damage to the spine around the neck region can cause inflammation, which results in pain with limited range of motion. Dr. Brown uses gentle and effective Chiropractic adjustments to restore the neck back to its proper form.
Pinched Nerves- Pinched nerves are a result of a spine injury sustained from sporting/training activates. Dr. Brown will provide a chiropractic adjustment of the spine to relieve pressure on the nerve, which alleviates pain and allows your body to function better.
When engaging in sports or physical activities, keep in mind your body’s own abilities and limitations. Do not waste time struggling with trying to treat yourself. Call Dr. Brown today to get on proper body maintenance!
