Sport Injuries

Sports injuries occur during exercise, athletic activities, or sports activities. There are various things that would increase the risk of sports injuries such as failing to warm up.

A sports injury is a type of injury caused by exercise or sports which involves the musculoskeletal system of our body (muscles, ligaments, joints, bones, and cartilage).

At Healing Hands Chiropractic Singapore, our main goal is to get to the root of the issue and handle it with precise non-invasive techniques that help relieve pain altogether as well as to assist in the quickest, fullest recovery. Remember, you do not have to live in pain as Healing Hands Chiropractic Singapore has the solutions.

Common Causes Of Sport Injuries

Over-training

Over-training

A sports injury can result from excessive fatigue in combination with insufficient recovery time. Insufficient rest before or after high-intensity training would weaken or damage the body, therefore increasing the risk of injury.

Repetitive overuse

Most athletes tend to repeat the same motion over and over. Due to this repetitive movement, certain muscles or joints get overused and gradually become weakened or damaged, resulting in a sports injury

Skipping warm-up

It is important that you get your body prepared before you start any physical activities. A proper warm-up helps to increase body temperature and circulation to the muscles. 20 minutes of stretching and light cardio exercises will improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Poor Posture/technique

Improper posture or techniques put a great burden to the joints and muscles that are used during the workout. Initially, it would start off with minor symptoms such as mild discomfort but over time it can result in a serious injury.

Prevention of Sport Injuries

  1. Ensure you have enough rest and recovery time before the next training.

  2. Prepare your body with a proper warm-up.

  3. Improve/Correct your techniques by having a coach or a professional to monitor.

  4. Use proper clothing gear and equipment for the related sport.

  5. Improve your posture and movement by seeing chiropractors at Healing Hands to ensure proper alignment of your spine

Identifying postural imbalances to detect any differences in weight between the right and the left sides of the body, alignment from our head all the way down to our hips.

Identifying Postural imbalances to detect for any difference in weight between the right and the left sides of the body, alignment from our head all the way down to our hips.

 

Spinal examination uses our advanced Tytron thermographic spinal scan to help measure the muscle temperature.

1-on-1 consultation with our Chiropractors with a detailed review of your health history.

Our Chiropractor will investigate and educate you on the necessary steps forward in reaching your health goals.

Our Chiropractors will perform a series of range of motion tests to determine your current body condition and an adjustment will be administered if deemed clinically safe to do so.

Our Chiropractors will use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled force to the spinal joints.

A “Crack” or “Pop” sound may occur as your spine gets manipulated. Do not be alarmed, as the adjustment releases trapped gasses from your joints.

X-Rays will be prescribed so that we can accurately diagnose your condition before prescribing a customised treatment program.

It is also for your safety and for us to rule out any possible underlying conditions that cannot be treated by Chiropractic.

The review of your X-rays is complimentary at your following visit if you take up the X-rays with our preferred diagnostic partners.
