Sports Injury Exeter

Ideally, we want you to come to us the moment you feel pain resulting from a sporting injury. That way we can see if we can help, prevent the problem from becoming worse and hopefully help you to become pain free. However, we know that seeking treatment for a common sports injury in Exeter isn’t something that many of you are comfortable doing and that you may wait until the pain is too intense for you to carry on with your daily life before seeking care.

When Should You Seek Sports Injury Treatment in Exeter?

Often, when an individual has been playing sport and suffers an injury, they’re reluctant to call any kind of health or sports therapy professional, whether that be a GP or chiropractor. Instead, they simply assume that the pain will subside in time, and that seeking any kind of treatment for a common sports injury in Exeter, is unnecessary. However, this may not be the case, and in short, any injury that prevents you from living and working comfortably, free from pain, is an injury that’s worth getting advice and potential treatment for.
They may also worry that the healthcare professional will recommend that they rest and stop participating in sports and other activities until the injury has healed; something they may not want to hear.

Innate Health Chiropractic For Certain Sports Injuries

One issue in particular that can really get a person down is pain that prevents you from getting back to exercise or returning to your athletic pursuits. Over time this can have a truly detrimental effect on a person’s wellbeing, both mentally and physically. If you’ve suffered a sports injury, we recommend seeking help from a qualified chiropractor before any potential further damage is caused and you’re left with an even longer recovery period.
Whatever type of sports injury you’ve suffered, and whether you live in Exeter or any of the surrounding towns and villages such as Exmouth, Crediton or Cullompton, we urge you to seek our help (or that of any healthcare professional) with sports injury treatment in Exeter as soon as possible, especially if you experience any of the following symptoms:

An increase in swelling

Numbness or tingling in the affected area

Pain when weight bearing on the affected area

A shooting pain that radiates throughout your body

Pain that sometimes goes away, but always comes back

Pain that doesn’t go away even after a period of rest

Who Can Help You With Treatment For A Common Sports Injury In Exeter?

While your initial instinct might be to seek help from a primary care provider such as a local GP (and it’s perfectly okay to do so – in fact, it beats doing nothing), in many cases, a doctor who is trained in sports medicine or a chiropractor, may be able to give you a more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan for a sports injury in Exeter.
Getting you back on your feet and ideally back to doing the sport you love, is the primary objective when you get sports injury treatment at Innate Health Chiropractic. If you seek out other therapists, be sure that this is always from a professional, with plenty of experience dealing with sports injuries. If you’re unsure, a quick check online will usually confirm whether the practitioner is credible and fully trained but don’t be afraid to conduct further checks if you’re in any doubt.
Some sports injuries have been shown in research to benefit from chiropractic care, depending on the diagnosis. A list of disorders likely to benefit from chiropractic treatment include:

Elbow pain and tennis elbow arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck

Joint pains such as shoulder, hip and knee issues (dependent on diagnosis)

Generalised aches and joint pains including muscle spasm and cramp

Cervicogenic headache (headache arising from the neck)
