Chiropractic Care for Young Athletes/ Youth Sports

Sports offer lasting benefits for people of all ages, but they can increase the possibility of an injury. Thankfully, the most common sports injury types can be resolved with chiropractic treatment. read on to learn about the injuries we most often treat for young athletes in Henderson, NC, at Care Chiropractic and Acupuncture Center.


Head and Neck Injuries

Both concussion and whiplash are well-known injuries for players who engage in contact sports. Most people think these two injuries occur while playing football. However, collisions on the soccer field, basketball court, or even in the pool are common sources of neck pain and head injury. 

Tennis Elbow

Also called golf elbow, this sports injury is not caused by trauma or impact, but by repetitive use. Our chiropractor can help ease the pain of this common condition and get you back on the court in a hurry. 

Hamstring Strain

This sports injury can happen to any athlete that runs or moves swiftly. Hamstring strain can cause lasting pain and discomfort, and lead to other injuries, so it is important to address this concern with chiropractic treatment. 

Back Injuries

From the searing pain of sciatica to strains and sprains, your athletic routine or the sports you engage in can injure your back. This is one of the most common concerns we see at our practice and one that is often treated successfully with chiropractic care.

Knee Injuries

Getting hit at a wrong angle or an accidental twisting could end with a painful, swollen knee joint. Knee strains and sprains that make it tough to get around are frequent occurrences to gymnasts, anyone playing a sport that requires pivoting and evasive moves, and even dancers, making this a concern for our chiropractic clients.
