While sports injuries aren't always preventable, there are several steps athletes can take to minimize the chances of getting hurt. Our chiropractors offer services that help patients avoid muscle strain and maintain good nutrition.
Effective Pain Relief Before Your Appointment
Sometimes, you may not be able to get to a chiropractor right away. But not to worry—you can get immediate relief from sports injuries using a few strategies. Whether you’re caring for yourself or your child, we recommend taking these steps:
- Rest the injury and avoid additional stress
- Stay hydrated
- Ice the injury for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off
- Wrap the injured area to minimize swelling
- Elevate the injury when possible
