You do not need to be a professional athlete to suffer a legitimate sports injury.

In fact, many individuals, adult, and children, suffer from sports-related injuries, whether it be from their little league teams, intramural teams, or even recreational games.

These injuries can be caused by an acute trauma or repetitive stress. The area injured can differ depending on how you hurt it, and of course, what sport was being played at the time of injury.

Below is an explanation of the potential ways a sports injuries can occur, the most common injuries our local Denver, CO chiropractors have treated, and how a chiropractic doctor is the best choice after a sports injury.

How Can Sports Injuries Occur?  

There are typically two types of sports injuries, caused by two very different stressors.

The first type of injury is an acute trauma.  

An acute trauma is a one-time event that causes an injury. This single incident is responsible for causing an immediate injury that was not previously there, even in a less severe form, prior to the accident occurring.

An example of an acute sports injury would be a concussion, fracture, or torn ligament. Some impact, fall, or extreme stress was placed on a part of the body that caused this injury to occur instantaneously, requiring immediate medical attention.

The second example of a sports injury, which is very common, is repetitive stress.

This is the type of injury that results from athletes repeating the same movement very often, causing damage to a specific area.

This is seen in tennis or pitchers elbow, runners knee, or tendonitis.

All of these injuries are caused by athletes repeatedly performing the same motion to the point that they cause damage to their body.

The Primary Sources of Sports Injuries

Sport-related injuries can be caused by any different number of things, but our chiropractors most commonly treat damage caused by an acute or chronic soft-tissue injury. Our chiropractors specialize in treating soft-tissue damage, reducing inflammation, and relieving pain and soreness in the area. Below are three common soft-tissues that become injured most often.

Muscles typically become damaged due to a sudden trauma, or acute injury. They can also be damaged due to over-use, which happens slowly over a longer period of time.

Ligaments connect bone to other bones in the spinal column. They help stabilize, move, and control the spine, so when they become damaged, serious injuries and pain can occur from excess movement.

Tendons connect muscle to bone in the spinal column. Tendons are made up of fibrous bands of tissue that allow movement between the muscles and the bones in your spine.
