Preventing and Treating Common Summer Sports Injuries in Calgary

Treatment for sport injury

Summertime in Calgary is a time to take advantage of numerous sports that can't be played during our cold winters. Unfortunately, this increases your chances for sports injuries. Here are some common injuries caused by popular summer sports, as well as information on how they can be prevented and treated:

Baseball and Tennis Injuries
Baseball and tennis usually result in similar overuse injuries to the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. These sorts of injuries can be prevented by performing arm stretches before playing and by practicing good mechanics and control during the game instead of swinging or throwing wildly. Make sure that you never play with pain and sit out if something starts to hurt.

Soccer Injuries
As soccer is all about running and kicking, ankle strains and knee strains make up the bulk of injuries that occur on the field. Warm down stretches, cool down stretches, and proper hydration is crucial for making sure that your body can take the impact of the sport. Proper equipment can also significantly prevent injury.

Cycling Injuries
The most common injury caused by cycling is Achilles tendinitis. The best way to avoid Achilles tendinitis is to slowly increase the duration and intensity of your cycling regime rather than ramping up the difficulty all at once. Make sure that you choose the proper footwear, and avoid tough cycling routs if you are feeling some discomfort.

Swimming Injuries
Shoulder pain is the number one injury keeping swimmers out of the water. As it is generally caused by a combination of overuse and misuse, shoulder pain when swimming can be prevented by mixing up your swimming style and by making sure that you are practicing a good stroke technique. Land exercises focused on core strengthening can also help prevent shoulder injury by taking strain off the shoulder joint.

Speeding Up the Healing Process for Sports Injuries
Don't let a sports injury keep you inactive for the rest of the summer. Making an appointment with a chiropractor at Alberta Back and Neck Rehab & Sports Injuries Clinic can ensure that you get the proper treatment. Whether you are suffering from elbow pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, or Achilles tendinitis, seeking chiropractic treatment in Calgary can help speed up the healing process and get you out and enjoying your favourite activities again.
