Many sports require sharp movements such as strong acceleration and deceleration, cutting left and right, agility, jumping, and bending in a lose. These put a person at risk for lower limb injury,
more commonly, hamstring injuries. These are the most common injury in Australian football, affecting 16 percent of players and averaging out to 3.4 missed matches per injury. Our 07081 chiropractic expert is going to show you some research to back up this claim.
A study was done in 2010 where researchers took 57 male Australian football players and assigned them to two groups. The control group was given the best medical, sports, and science management. The intervention group was given that same care along with a sports Chiropractic manual therapy injury prevention program which consisted of manipulation, mobilization, and soft tissue therapies to the spine. The treatment was given to both groups a minimum of one treatment per week for six weeks, one treatment every two weeks for three months, and one treatment per month for what remained of the season.
After the season ended. The researchers concluded that the intervention group who received chiropractic injury intervention reported much less lower limb muscle strains and weeks missed due to no contact knee injury than the other group. Although lower limb injury prevention was the focus of the research, the players in the Chiropractic group also had less back pain.
If you have dysfunction in one area of the body, stress can be added elsewhere. This is the reason that it’s important to do a full body examination to identify any hidden problem areas or other issues that may be causing the patients chief complaint. Preventative care that is focused on maintaining proper motion in the joints in the whole body leads to a reduced risk for any sort of injury, which 07081 Chiropractic showed you through this study.
