Pregnancy Sports Injuries Chiropractor Hallandale Broward Amunategui II. Many athletes are sidelined with injuries that could have been avoided, or because their injuries do not respond to traditional medical care. In the first case, chiropractic care prior to the sports activity might have prevented the injury, and second, chiropractic care can solve problems that traditional medical care often cannot
Some injured athletes continue to play, but at less than peak efficiency because their structural system is not balanced. More and more, coaches and athletes are turning away from pain-killing drugs, because they recognize that such drugs just mask the pain, and do not address the cause of the pain. Such a strategy often worsens the injury, possibly making full recovery impossible.
Therapeutic exercise, massage, and nutritional support are part of patient care for injuries such as ankle sprains, muscles strains, tendinitis (tennis elbow, for example). Bursitis of the shoulder, and joint problems involving the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot can also be treated very effectively with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Pregnancy Care. During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes to accommodate a growing baby. “When you’re pregnant, the hormone relaxin is released, which relaxes the joints and eases labor and delivery,” but sometimes, the ligaments get so loose that they become structurally unstable, and it creates pain.”
Other factors that can lead to spine misalignment and pain during pregnancy:
- You’re typically carrying 25 to 30 extra pounds.
- The abdominal muscles weaken.
- The curve in your lower back becomes accentuated.
Chiropractic care keeps the spine aligned, so it can be helpful for pregnant women who are in discomfort. Sometimes, midwives and obstetricians recommend chiropractic care to their patients.
