At Bond Thomas Chiropractic, we have seen it all and treated it all, so we have the experience needed to properly diagnose and treat all of your athletic ailments.

Common Sports Injuries We Treat

Exercise is usually great for the body, been when something goes wrong, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further complicating the problem. There are a wide range of issues we treat, but there are a few that we see from patients frequently:

  • Strains and Sprains: We often see athletes who have overextended or twisted their joints, leading to tears of the muscles, tendons, or ligaments. In fact, common ankle sprains often involve some tearing of the ligaments along the joint. A local St. Petersburg chiropractic physician can help minimize the pain from sports injuries and treat the problem by performing palpitations of the affected area once the swelling has been reduced.
  • Tendonitis: Overuse of joints, often due to intense training schedules, can result in the condition known as tendonitis, where the tendons become inflamed. Oftentimes this condition is present in golfers and tennis players who tend to repeat the same range of motion frequently and intensely. This condition usually results in a stinging pain in the affected joint area. Trigger point therapy and stretching and strengthening therapies are a few common treatments for this condition.
  • Stress Fractures: When muscles become fatigued, either from overuse or lack of sufficient warm up, they fail to absorb shock as they are intended to do. Instead, the shock is transferred to the bone, causing small stress fractures. Those who regularly engage in tennis, track and field activities, gymnastics, and basketball are the most vulnerable to these sports injuries. Rest and stabilization are commonly recommended, but joint manipulation and other therapies may also be recommended by your St. Petersburg chiropractor.

The main reasons athletes tend to hurt themselves is because they have not warmed up properly before their workouts, they have suffered from a forceful impact trauma, or they regularly engage in activities that repeat the same types of motions frequently. Being conscious of the way you train can prevent some of these sports injuries from occurring. In addition, you can also schedule regular treatments and adjustments Bond Thomas Chiropractic, your trusted St. Petersburg chiropractic care office, in order to prevent frequent ailments.
