Sports injuries can be brought about by traumatic events or repetitive stress patterns. This will cause deformity of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. This will lead to a build up of trigger points in the muscles of the legs and arms, rotator cuff and shoulder girdle and the postural muscles of the spine and pelvis.
Trigger points are hyper-contracted bands of muscle and connective tissue with hyper-sensitised pain receptors interwoven into them. Trigger points cause pain, stiffness and weakness in the effected area, but can also lead to pain referral, stiffness and weakness in neighbouring areas. Over time the build up of trigger points will lead to faulty biomechanics of the spine and pelvic joints and the peripheral joints of the body, such as the knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists. This in turn will lead to wear and tear or what is better know as osteoarthritis.
Sports injuries of the hamstrings, knee and ankle muscles, can be aggravated by a build up of trigger points in the pelvic muscles (primarily the gluteus muscles) and lower back muscles (primarily the quadratus lumborum). Many shoulder, elbow and wrist injuries can be aggravated by faulty biomechanics of the neck and a build up of trigger points in the supporting muscles of the neck and shoulder girdle.
Chiropractic treatment at our clinic in Basingstoke at the Aquadrome, can help restore function to the injured muscle, tendon and ligament joint complex. This works through deep pressure therapy into the trigger points, helping them to diminish, and manipulation of the joint, helping to restore their movement patterns. This in turn restores strength to the affected muscle and removes pain.
