Chiropractor Morningside For Common Sports Injuries

Chiropractor Morningside, Edinburgh may be just what you need if you have experienced one of the many different types of injuries that can occur while taking part in sport or exercise. Learning more about the most common forms of injury aids in better understanding why access to a good chiropractor is essential.

Inflammation of the Achilles tendon is a common complaint seen by chiropractors in participants of sports such as road running. The problem arises from tension in the calf muscle pulling on the tendon and causing it to become irritated and inflamed. An Edinburgh chiropractor will not only loosen the calf muscle, but also assess why it is tightening in the first place. By doing this, chiropractors can reduce the risk of further pain. Similar problems are seen by chiropractors in the plantar fascia at the sole of the foot during running and walking. Another very common injury during sports and exercise that is best dealt with by a chiropractor Edinburgh is a muscle tear. Most often, muscle tears are a result of tight muscles and are therefore avoidable. Preventative chiropractic care includes ensuring that the spine is properly aligned, and that there is no joint restriction or imbalance in the muscles. Warming up properly before exercise, and cooling down afterwards, also help to prevent tears. However, there are occasions when the tear is unavoidable as it is the result of an accident during participation in sport. Here, the chiropractor’s role is to provide curative rather than preventative treatment.
