Sports Chiropractor

We are a healthy active island, where sport and physical activity are part of our identity. Unfortunately, many of us suffer injuries as we get out on the weekend for a game of badminton or when we sign up for a running event.

Knee pain, Shoulder pain and Lower Back pain are common sporting injuries which occur during our favourite past times that Chiropractic can help by relieving pain, restoring movement and speeding up return to play.

Other more intensive activities such as HIIT, dragon boat racing and body combat provide us with great forms of exercise and health benefits. However, they can also leave us in pain if our body is not prepared for the challenge. Chiropractic care can treat these pains and more importantly it can be used by athletes to optimize their performance and help to prevent injuries as they push their bodies to the limit.

When’s the Right Time to Visit a Sports Chiropractor?

Although healthier and stronger, athletes’ bodies often have a lot more toll on them compared to the average person. And while certain muscle groups are in better shape than others, more often than not, an athlete can feel chronic pain in many parts of their body including their back and spine.

In recent years, studies have shown that chiropractic care can help athletes get rid of chronic pain and avoid injuries. But how can you know when to visit a sports chiropractor in Singapore? Should you visit a sports chiropractor at the beginning of the season, throughout or after?

Today, we’re going to answer these questions for you.

Common Performance Problems for Athletes

Injuries happen all the time. However, that’s not the only reason why so many athletes seek chiropractic treatment. After years of training, many athletes find themselves reaching a plateau they can’t seem to escape, no matter how much they train and work on their body, their pain is consistent. In order to avoid this, many turn to chiropractors for help. That’s because a sports chiropractor will work with you to improve your health and function and help you reach your full potential.

Chiropractic Treatments for Sports Injuries

Whether you’re a full-time athlete or just an amateur, your body can’t stay injury-free forever. Stressing one part of your body will eventually result in some kind of injury. The more stress you put on a certain part of your body, the more your muscles and nerves suffer.

Some athletes simply ignore the pain and work through it. However, this can’t be done for long. After a while, the pain will become too unbearable to ignore. Some of the most common injuries sports chiropractors come across are:

  • Groin strains
  • Neck injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Tendon strains
  • Chronic back pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Hamstring strains

A good chiropractor will not only help you heal your injuries and nurture you back to health but also show you how to avoid getting injured again.

When Is the Right Time to Visit a Chiropractor?

Should you wait to strain a tendon to visit a sports chiropractor? Not at all. In fact, you should pay a visit to a chiropractic professional before you start feeling pain or when you’re feeling like you could be close to an injury. As soon as you notice a slight decline in your athletic performance, you should consult a medical professional. That way, you’ll be able to have your body examined before a career-altering injury could happen.
