If you are an avid fan of sports, love to play with your friends and family, or even exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle, sports injuries can strike at any moment.

At Capitol Hill Chiropractic, we provide quality chiropractic care for our patients in Capitol Hill, First Hill, South Lake Union, and the larger Seattle area.
What Is a Sports Injury?
A sports injury is any injury that occurs due to playing sports or exercise. Common sports injuries include:
- Shin splints
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Muscle tears
- Dislocated joints
- Broken bones
- Overuse injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles heel injuries
- Twisted ankle
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
Getting Chiropractic Care for Your Sports Injury
Many sports injuries, such as mild sprains or strains, can heal on their own without treatment. However, if your injury has caused severe pain, or if your injury continues to persist without healing, it's important to get help to avoid long term pain.
Sports injuries should never be left untreated. Without proper rehabilitation, you increase your chances of reinjury to the affected area. The more often reinjury occurs, the weaker your muscle gets and its ability to heal on its own is reduced.
How a Chiropractor Helps
Our chiropractor will determine the right course of treatment for your sports injury. Through a physical exam and imaging tests, we will determine the extent of your injury and recommend treatment such as manual and spinal adjustments, muscle stretches to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation, muscle exercises to strengthen the injured area, and a combination of other chiropractic treatments.
