Athletes understand the demands of participating in their given sport. They put their bodies through rigorous activities day after day to excel at their sport. Although a good portion of sports chiropractic is to assist athletes in their recovery from injuries sustained from overuse and overworking, sports chiropractic also focuses on improving athletic performance. It is also important to take precautionary measures in order to prevent injuries from happening in the future.
Dr. Jeff Davis assists professional and amateur athletes as well as weekend warriors. Dr. Davis has been practicing sports chiropractic for over four and a half decades. In the words of Dr. Davis: “The best part is that I continue to love it and enjoy the challenges of each new patient.”
Common Sports Injuries
Whether you are a professional athlete, competing at the high school or collegiate level or take part in recreational sports, your body is susceptible to the same kinds of aches and pains. Some of the most common symptoms seen by our Woodcliff Lake chiropractor are:
- Back pain or neck pain
- Sprains, strains or tears to the shoulder, hamstring, calf, thigh, groin, knee, ankle and hip
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Tennis/golfers elbow
- Chronic headaches
- Swelling and inflammation
- Joint and muscle pain
- Muscle spasms
- Burning, dull pain in different areas of the body
Dr. Davis will work with you to prevent these types of injuries from occurring and create plans to mend those who already experience any of these injuries.
Sports Injuries Can Cause Further Injuries If Left Untreated
Sports injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Oftentimes, these conditions are a result of injuries suffered weeks, months or years ago that never properly healed. Children and teens tend to ignore what they think are small injuries because they do not want to stop playing their sport. Ignoring these small injuries, however, can eventually lead to long term pain. Many sports injuries are treated insufficiently or aren’t given the proper time to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
