According to data from the CDC, around 8-10 million sports injuries are sustained every year in the United States, with the vast majority of these injuries occurring in people under the age of 25. At Lott Chiropractic in Lincoln NE, we've worked with many of our own local athletes of every age, and have witnessed firsthand just how exceptional customized chiropractic care can be in the treatment, management, and prevention of such injuries.

Common Types of Sports Injuries & How They Occur

Sports injuries can be either chronic or acute. They often occur as a result of over-training, under-training, poor equipment, poor technique, poor body mechanics, strength, flexibility, and range of motion imbalances, poor nutrition, poor hydration, the relative dangers of the sport itself (especially contact sports), and slips, trips, falls, and other accidents, or a combination of several of these factors.

At our chiropractic clinic in Lincoln, the following sports-related injuries are the ones we see the most often:

  • Rotator cuff strains and tears
  • Labral Tears
  • Muscle spasms
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Joint misalignments (e.g., facet joint locking in the spine)
  • Tendonitis
  • plantar fasciitis
  • Spinal disc bulges and herniations
  • Nerve impingement
  • Concussions and post-concussive syndromes

Signs & Symptoms of a Sports Injury

No two sports injuries are exactly alike, but common signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Joint instability
  • Weakness and muscle wasting
  • Scar tissue formation
  • Numbness, weakness, and/or tingling in the affected area
