Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Pittsburgh: If you’re an athlete, you understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help you heal faster when you’ve suffered sports injuries and helps to prevent them.
Sports Injuries Can Limit Your Performance and Cause Pain
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. As an active person, it is important for you to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries happen. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and decrease your athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports Injuries can Cause Further Injuries if Not Treated
Chiropractors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Hurley Chiropractic, our trained staff will perform a full evaluation. We will construct a treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, chiropractors treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles and more. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury. If you’re experiencing pain from a sports injury, consider seeing a chiropractor. You may want to schedule regular check-ups to prevent injuries and to keep your body performing properly.

Went in for a neck injury, my range of motion was about 20/100. I saw major improvement after only my first visit, went back the next day and I have full range of motion and my pain has decreased by 60%!!! The entire staff is welcoming and generous. Definitely a 5 star rating, anything less is plain crazy.
The staff at Hurley Chiropractic are incredible. They have helped me work through current back problems and find healthy ways to prevent issues from coming back. Thank you very much for all your help!
Dr Hurley has been my Chiropractor for 15 yrs. He and his staff have always been professional, educated and provided great service.
Dr. Hurley’s staff and team does a great job. I came in today bent over and in a lot of pain. After the first treatment, I was standing straighter, and I noticed that there was considerable improvement.
Torn/Strained Groin that turned my leg black and blue. Mike and his Staff turned it around in about a week and a half. Now for a few more weeks of therapy to stretch and strengthen it back to 100%. This is not the first injury he’s treated for me, back to 100%. Can’t say enough.
always feel better after some adjustments & therapy!
Very professional and caring staff, great treatment, and an awesome gym all in one. Nothing but good things to say!
