Aches and Pains After Hockey? Here’s How Chiropractic Can Help

Written By Platinum Chiropractic on June 1, 2019

Checks, tumbles, bumps, and bruises: as a hockey player, your body takes a beating.

Although you might love the intensity, your spine certainly doesn’t appreciate it. Injuries are simply a way of life.

Chiropractic offers a whole-body approach because it targets your pain – from minor aches to major conditions – at its source.

Which Injuries Do Hockey Players Typically Face?

Hockey players suffer from a wide variety of injuries ranging from mild to severe. As an athlete, you put fierce stress on your body and, unfortunately, experience frequent injuries.

Structural shifts in the spine from average gameplay lead to various painful conditions throughout the entire body. Common conditions include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Soft tissue damage in the shoulder
  • Knee pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Concussions
  • Ligament tears
  • Dislocated joints
  • Fractures

Why is Chiropractic Care in Eden Prairie the Answer?

Our doctors conduct a thorough evaluation to identify the source of your pain or common injuries. Instead of simply treating symptoms, chiropractic care targets the underlying structural issues leading to your painful conditions.

Many people don’t realize that a structural shift in the spine is actually responsible for pain throughout various areas of the body including ankles, shoulders, and extremities. When something is misaligned in the spine, this throws off your central nervous system’s stability, which causes problems everywhere.

Gentle spinal manipulations and modern techniques help shift the spine back into its optimal foundation so your body can heal itself. We get you back on the ice faster.
