Sports Injury FAQ

Sports injuries can be debilitating for athletes. Knowing how to identify a sports injury and how to get it treated can speed your recovery period and help you avoid problems in the future.

Q: How do sports injuries occur?

A: Different sports injuries have different causes. The types of injuries that are typical to each sport can vary. Poor technique, failure to warm up, falls, twists, heavy blows, failure to wear safety equipment and inappropriate use of equipment are all common causes for sports injuries. All parts of the body are vulnerable to sports injuries, including bones, muscles, joints and connecting tissues.

Q: How will I know if I have a sports injury?

A: Sports injuries can manifest themselves in different ways, depending on the type of injury. Redness, numbness, pain while walking, stiffness, swelling and bruising are all common symptoms of sports injuries. Some injuries manifest themselves over a long period of time, other injuries become obvious right away. The best way to tell if you have a sports injury is to pay attention to the signals coming from your body.

Q: How can I avoid getting a sports injury?

A: Performing proper warm up stretches and cool down exercises after any sport experience can reduce the impact that intense physical activity can have on the body. Staying hydrated helps, as does cross training. Cross training encourages balanced strengthening of the muscles and improves flexibility of the joints and muscles, improving the body’s resilience.

One of the best ways to avoid a sports injury is to go through a proper recovery period after an injury. Playing through the pain can lead to additional injuries and complications from injuries, which ultimately can lead bigger problems in the future.

Q: How can treatment from a chiropractor help my sports injury?

A: Chiropractors use a variety of different methods to treat sports related injuries. Chiropractors can show patients how to perform foundation training exercises to strengthen and rehabilitate muscles after an injury. Foundation training exercises help patients safely achieve athletic goals.

In addition, chiropractors can use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and therapies to help patients manage pain without use of medications.

Finally, chiropractors can teach patients how to avoid sports injuries in the future. Often with special exercises and techniques, patients can participate in their favorite sports without sustaining injury.

Q: What’s wrong with using medication to control pain?

A: Medications mask pain without treating the source of the pain. Over time, patients can become addicted to medications without ever recovering from their injuries. This can lead to a life-long battle with pain and can even cause disabling conditions in the future.

    Doc Eulo is nothing short of amazing. The staff is excellent. I said the same thing about them 21 years ago when I first starting going to Dr. Eulo. Back then he took care of me and my aching back when I was pregnant, and even adjusted my newborn!

    Dr Eulo is the best of the best and he is the coolest doctor that I know. August 2015 I was involved in a car accident, someone referred him to me, the first day I walked into his office I was in so much pain from my head to toe, I was a mess, three times a week for 6 months he was working on my aches and pains and I am here to tell you I'm pain free. Every time I walked in his office he put on my R & B Oldies did I say he was the coolest yes I did, he makes you feel very comfortable like one o

    Went to Dr. Eulo for treatment from an auto accident. The Dr. and his staff are very professional and makes your visit very pleasant. His knowledge and practice helped me very much with my injuries and I'm glad I chose Dr. Eulo as my chiropractor. If you're looking for a chiropractor, Eulo Chiropractic Center is the place to go!

    It is always a pleasure to go see Dr. Eulo. He is a very positive, caring and knowledgeable doctor. You will always leave his office with a smile on your face. His office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Eulo has successfully treated me for a frozen shoulder when an orthopedic surgeon thought that I would need surgery. My shoulder is fine now thanks to Dr. Eulo. He has also treated me for severe back spasms when I could hardly walk. Within a few days of treatment

    Dr. Eulo's treatments for my neck and back pain have been super helpful. He gives a thorough adjustment of neck, back and all joints and follows it up by a nice, relaxing massage bed. I leave the office feeling restored and like my body is back in it's best working condition. The office is neat and professional and Dr. Eulo is very down to earth, spends time with me and truly cares about my overall health. I've been to many chiropractors over many years, so I know a good chiropractor when I see

    - KellySue F.

    Dr. Eulo is the BEST chiropractor, hands down. The staff is friendly, the office is always clean, and Dr. Eulo is the nicest doctor. I have anxiety when it comes to doctors and going for "check ups" but Dr. Eulo makes me feel comfortable. I wish he could be my doctor for everything! I would recommend Dr. Eulo in a heart beat.
