Football players are among the most injury prone athletes there are, whether they are playing the sport professionally, or are still on their high school team. Whether it's the knees, ankles, shoulders, neck or back, if you play football, chances are something is going to get hurt before the season is out. In order to limit these injuries as much as possible and speed healing when they do occur, many athletes are turning to chiropractors for care. Our chiropractors at Campion Chiropractic and Sports Injury Clinic in College Station can help you recover from your sports injury and help prevent any future injuries.
No matter what level you are playing football at, there is always a certain amount of pressure to get back out there and play, even after sustaining a sports injury. Among the most common injuries for football players are:
Knee/ACL and cartilage sprain/strains
Shoulder/Elbow/Wrist impingement and ligament injuries
Back,Hip and Disc herniations/protrusions
One of the up sides of treating these injuries with chiropractic care is that with the right conditioning many football injuries can actually be prevented, keep players not only on the field, but healthy too.
If, as a college, high school or even younger football player you are considering chiropractic treatment for sports injuries, you are far from alone. In fact, the NFL is full of players that use chiropractic care on a regular basis to help keep them competitive. NFL teams have their own chiropractors employed by the team, and on average, an NFL team chiropractor will provide at least 30-50 chiropractic treatments each week for the team.
Regardless of whether you are 14 or 40, chiropractic treatments are appealing as they are performed without the use of any drugs or medication. The use of pain killers has led to many problems with addiction, as well as other health problems. With our chiropractors, we plan a comprehensive sports injury treatment for effective rehabilitation.
