Common Sports injuries Seen by Our Lake Charles Chiropractors

Various parts of the body can get hurt during a sport, whether it's out on a playing field or in your favorite corner of the gym. Our Lake Charles chiropractors work with individuals to recover from various injuries:

  • Rotator cuff strains and tears
  • Labrum and ligament tears and ruptures
  • Whiplash, concussion, and post-concussive syndrome
  • Biceps, patellar, or Achilles tendonitis
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome aka runner's knee
  • Medial epicondylitis aka golfer's elbow
  • Lateral epicondylitis aka tennis elbow
  • Bursitis at the shoulder, hip, or knee
  • Joint dislocations or subluxations
  • Nerve impingement (sciatica, cervical radiculopathy, or peripheral nerve entrapments like median, ulnar, and peroneal nerves)
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome aka shin splints
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Generalized joint and muscle aches and pains

These injuries can present themselves in a wide variety of ways, and can easily devolve into chronic issues if left unaddressed or simply masked by pain medication. Areas of past injury can also be relatively weak when healed, further increasing a person's risk for re-injury or new injuries elsewhere in the chain. 

Why Sports Injuries and Chiropractic Care Go Hand in Hand

Sports injuries respond exceptionally well to chiropractic care? Why? 

  • Our services are drug-free and non-invasive, so you have minimal downtime and no worries about accidentally testing positive for banned substances. 
  • Our skilled chiropractors look at the whole patient to identify the root causes of an injury—nutrition, training and recovery habits, sleep, posture and spinal alignment, muscle imbalances, movement mechanics, etc.—in order to facilitate symptomatic resolution, prevent recurring problems, and even increase a person's ability to participate and excel in their desired sport. 
  • We offer techniques such as spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, laser therapy, whole body vibration, and massage to facilitate healing at both the cellular and tissue level, reduce your pain, and improve your mobility, strength, stamina, neuromuscular efficiency, and power.
