The Role of Chiropractic Care in Sports Injuries

Chiropractic care is an essential component of comprehensive sports injury treatment. It complements traditional medical treatments by focusing on the musculoskeletal system – the muscles, bones, and joints that are often involved in sports injuries.

At Physicians Plus, our chiropractors use a variety of techniques, including manipulation & mobilization, soft tissue therapy and rehabilitative exercises. These methods help to reduce pain, restore mobility, enhance function, and speed up recovery.

Common Sports Injuries

There are several types of sports injuries. Here are some of the most common:

  • Sprains: A sprain occurs when a ligament, which serves as the connecting tissue between bones, is injured. This type of injury is particularly common in areas such as the ankles, knees, and wrists. Sprains can result from a variety of causes—from a misstep during a routine run to a collision on the football field. Despite their commonality, each sprain is unique and may need personalized treatment.
  • Strains: Strains are another type of injury we often see, involving damage to a muscle or tendon. These injuries can occur due to overuse, forceful movements, or stretching beyond the muscle’s capability. For example, a pitcher may experience a strain from the repetitive motion of throwing a baseball, while a dancer might strain a muscle during a particularly strenuous performance.
  • Fractures: A fracture refers to a break in a bone, ranging in severity from minor hairline fractures to more serious breaks. Fractures can happen in various sports activities, including soccer, basketball, and skiing.
  • Concussions: Concussions are traumatic brain injuries caused by a blow to the head or a sudden movement that rattles the brain within the skull. This type of injury is common in contact sports like football or hockey but can occur in any sport. After a concussion, you may experience lingering pain, dizziness and fatigue of varying severity.


No matter what type of injury you sustained, proper rest is important. Physicians Plus utilizes holistic techniques to help reduce your discomfort while you focus on healing.

What Types of Treatments Do You Offer?

Physicians Plus is committed to treating patients using methods that consider your individual physical health. Every person has unique movement patterns that they may not even be aware of, along with their own personal health history. Using this information, our physicians can treat muscle pain, back pain, migraines, sports injuries and more at their root cause.

What Causes Soft Tissue Injuries, and How Are They Treated?

Soft tissue injuries happen when the muscles, tendons or ligaments experience a trauma. Something as simple as a sprain or overusing a certain muscle group can lead to pronounced pain and other symptoms. Whether your pain occurs suddenly or gradually over time, our team can help. At Physicians Plus, we use the Fascial Distortion Model™ to treat soft tissue injuries and accelerate healing. This approach utilizes a full-body strategy to improve your pain while encouraging tissue repair.
