Sports Injury in Orinda CA
Many things can go wrong in the world of sports in Orinda CA. A twisted knee, a bad hit or an accidental fall can result in a serious injury.
Fortunately, spinal injuries represent a very small percentage of all sports traumas. But because spinal injuries are rare, too many injured athletes don’t think of seeking chiropractic care when they’re hurt. But most sports-related injuries involve the musculoskeletal system—the bones, muscles and other soft tissues we depend on to stand and move correctly. Chiropractic doctors are specialists in the musculoskeletal system.
Who Gets Sports Injuries?
Children are at greatest risk for long-term complications from sports injuries. Bodies that are still developing are more vulnerable to sprains and bruises that may look minor from the outside. If your child is hurt during an athletic event, seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if it seems like "nothing."
Seasoned athletes may suffer injuries from overuse, commonly referred to as repetitive-motion injury. Adults who are just starting an exercise regimen may injure themselves by pushing to accomplish big improvements in a short amount of time. In other words, almost everyone is at risk for a sports-related injury at sometime during their life.
