Sports Rehabilitation for Back Pain

While anyone with back pain should seek treatment, for athletes, sports rehabilitation may mean the difference between being an all-star and finding yourself sitting on the bench with an ice pack and a broken dream. At Rivano Chiropractic and Health Center in Florham Park, NJ, our goal is to use all of the remedies we need to get you back in the game as quickly as possible.

Common Sports Injuries that Cause Back Pain

While every sport and every athlete is different, there are some injuries that bring patients into our office in search of sports rehabilitation more often. These include neck injuries that occur due to a hit or blow that creates a whiplash effect (such as what you typically see in sports like football and hockey) and upper back injuries that are created when you engage in a twisting movement (which is often the case in sports such as skiing, wrestling, and tennis, amongst several others).

Sports-related lower back injuries can create back pain as well, and activities like running and golf can contribute to these types of hurts. Essentially, any sport has the capability of putting you in pain, which means that you’ll need to engage in treatment if you want to be able to enjoy it – whether as a hobby or as your livelihood. Luckily, a few visits with your chiropractor can often do the trick!
