Low back pain is one of the most common sources of pain in athletes. Back injuries in athletes can range from strained muscles to more long-term, chronic lumbar pain. By helping the muscle relax and improve blood circulation, chiropractic treatment can help athletes recover properly without the use of drugs or invasive surgeries. Regular visits to your chiropractor can enhance muscle relaxation, increase overall strength and reduce pain. As a result, not only can chiropractic care treat sports-related injuries, but seeking care can also help prevent future injuries.
At Johns Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, we incorporate a holistic healing approach to your traditional chiropractic care. Athletes feeling physical back pains may find the use of Wintergreen essential oils beneficial. After a long day, take some time to relax, and pamper yourself with a Wintergreen bath. Add one to two drops of Wintergreen oil to warm bath water and enjoy the soothing sensations of Wintergreen essential oil. The Wintergreen oil will help to soothe the body, and its aroma will have a positive and uplifting effect on the mind.
Though the back pain of athletes can be easily attributed to their workouts and sporting events, it’s important chiropractors do not generalize diagnoses and are able to identify the unique causes of pain for each individual. A proper examination and the appropriate tests can help your chiropractor determine the best plan for your condition.
