The most common sports injuries are sprains, strains and even fractures. A sprain occurs when the ligament is extended further than its limit. Both ligaments and tendons are like a coil or spring that if they are stretched too far they will become damaged and are sometime referred to as a pulled muscle.
Professional sports teams take their teams’ health very seriously. Virtually every professional sports team currently has a chiropractor on its panel of care providers as chiropractic care can be extremely valuable for daily maintenance, improved stamina & enhanced flexibility. Utah Chiropractic care is also vital for the treatment and faster recovery of sports-related injuries, aches, and pains.
