Suffering From a Sports Injury in Batavia?

Chiropractic Batavia IL Sports Injury

There's a chill in the air, and kids are going back to school. This means that fall sports like football, soccer, and cross country are already in full swing. While the benefits of playing sports far outweigh the risk of injury, kids do tend to get hurt, especially when they're getting back into their exercise routine after having the summer off. Chiropractic care in Batavia is a great way for your child to receive the injury care that they need.

At Sharratt Chiropractic, serving St. Charles, Aurora, and Geneva, we believe in treating the root cause of injuries, rather than just the present symptoms. We work with you and your child to ensure that they're able to return to their sport, as good (or better!) as they were before the injury.


Sports Injury in Batavia

We treat all types of sports injuries for both serious athletes and weekend warriors. Regular chiropractic care can help prevent sports injuries, and our holistic treatments can help you get back on your feet more quickly when you do get injured.

At Sharratt Chiropractic, we're here to help with all of the fall sports injuries that your child may encounter. Students who run cross country and play soccer often deal with overuse injuries. Football players often come in with acute injuries, including sprains and strains. We treat a variety of symptoms in our office, including pain, headaches, migraines, fatigue, swelling, tenderness, and clicking or popping joints. We also work with tendinitis and joint pain issues.


Our Techniques

We believe in treating all of our patients as individuals. Just like no two people are the same, no two injuries are exactly the same. When you come in for your first appointment, we'll talk with you about your symptoms and how your injury occurred. From there, we'll put together a treatment plan that makes sense for you. We'll revisit this plan regularly to make sure we're continuing on the path to your recovery. Our techniques may include spinal adjustments, spinal alignment, electro-muscle stimulation, massage therapy, and more.

Chiropractic care allows your body to recover naturally. When your body innately heals itself, you will come back stronger than before. It's our goal to have you back on the field as soon as possible, feeling strong and ready to get back in the game.


Sports Injury FAQs

What Are Common Types of Sports and Recreational Injuries?

Sports injuries may come on gradually or suddenly. They are often associated with postural imbalances (inflexibility, weakness), pain, tenderness, swelling, instability, and clicking or popping sensations. While almost any type of injury can occur in any type of sport, certain injuries are more common in certain kinds of athletic activities. Here are some injuries we frequently see by sport:

  • Volleyball: runner's knee or patellofemoral pain syndrome, shin splints, plantar fasciitis
  • Softball and Baseball: rotator cuff strains, biceps tendonitis
  • Football: ligament sprains (especially in the knee), whiplash, and joint dislocations
  • Gymnastics: Achilles tendonitis, iliotibial band syndrome
  • Tennis: tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Golf: golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • Gardening: back pain, knee pain, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Wrestling: disc herniation or bulge, spinal joint subluxation

What Are The Risk Factors for Sports Injury?

You may be new to a sport or you could have years of experience under your belt, however, no matter what your activity or experience, you are always dealing with at least some risk for a sports-related injury.

Common risk factors that may increase your likelihood of getting hurt during exercise or sport include poor technique and body mechanics, ill-fitting equipment, poor running surface, acute sports injury, over-training, and inadequate rest, recovery, hydration, and nutrition.

How Can Chiropractic Care Benefit Athletes?

Chiropractic treatment can naturally resolve sports injury by alleviating symptoms (including pain, swelling, scar tissue, and weakness) and by addressing the underlying factors contributing to symptoms. Common services for athletes include adjustments, corrective exercises, massage, electrical stimulation, and whole food supplements. We assess the whole body, not just the injury.

Even if you don't have an injury, consulting with a chiropractor is still wise. A sports physical and functional assessment allows our Batavia chiropractor to assess your range of motion, strength, body mechanics, and other physical and lifestyle factors which may put you at risk for injury or hold you back from your true athletic potential.
