Running Injuries From Our East Orlando Chiropractor

There is no denying the health benefits of running for exercise – and the more practiced you get at it, the more it also becomes a source of enjoyment, of escape, of setting your day right. That’s why it can be so frustrating when you sustain a running injury. You have to heal before you can run properly again, and you want the process to go as quickly as possible. Fortunately, we can help. As your East Orlando chiropractor, we offer treatments that can help you heal, and get you back to doing what you love as soon as possible.

Common Running Injuries

As many advantages as there are to running, there are definitely disadvantages as well. The longer and more enthusiastically you pound your body on the pavement, burning up miles and calories, the more damage you do to your body. You will eventually sustain injuries if you run regularly and seriously. You can heal from those injuries in most cases, with rest and proper care, but it must be noted that running injuries are a part of the activity.

Some of the most common running injuries we see include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Inner knee pain
  • Outer knee pain
  • IT band syndrome
  • Patella tendon pain

Many runners develop a difference in leg length due to the routes they run, like staying on one side of traffic. Runners also tend to get stronger in certain parts of the body, like their legs, while other parts, like their abs, may not see the same benefit. All of these discrepancies can lead to imbalances that ultimately cause injury, pain, and discomfort.

Treatment from Your Sports Injuries Chiropractor in East Orlando

While we may not be able to completely eliminate the occurrence of injuries from running, our chiropractic team is well-equipped to help you recover from those injuries. Regular chiropractic care can also make it less likely that you will be injured, as we can continue to maintain proper alignment, and treat small problems early – before they become big ones. As your chiropractor in East Orlando, we can offer you a variety of treatments for all your sports injuries.

Our treatments include:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments – Subluxations, also referred to as misalignments, in your spine and other joints can lead to ongoing health issues if they are not corrected. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to correct subluxations, realigning your body to function optimally.
  • Massage Therapy – A massage is a valuable tool that works with chiropractic adjustments to improve your overall health and recovery time. Massage helps break up adhesions, scar tissue and improve circulation.
