It is estimated that approximately one-third of all children who participate in team sports will endure a sports injury at some point. Worse yet, that injury will be severe enough to keep them out of practices and games, reducing their playing time and causing them to miss out on the sport they love most.
However, sports injuries happen to adults too. In fact, young adults (which are defined as individuals who are under 25 years of age) make up almost 33% of patients who end up in the emergency room for sports injuries. Additionally, increases in these types of injuries are being experienced in people over the age of 65 as well. No one is immune.
Some of the most common sports injuries are sprains and strains. These can result from a collision with another player or object, moving the wrong way, constantly engaging in a repetitive motion (such as with tennis players and swimmers), and even overuse. No matter what the cause though, chiropractic care is a viable treatment option.
