There are several good reasons why the athlete should seek a sports chiropractor for the treatment and rehabilitation of a sports injury. Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Most physicians have not had special training in sports medicine or rehabilitation. Therefore, even outstanding physicians who don't treat athletes very regularly may make mistakes in the diagnosis and treatment of athletes' neuromusculoskeletal problems.
Without addressing a sports injury, the injury may become worse. The dysfunction in an injured joint rarely clears up on its own. Once a joint is injured, especially a knee or ankle, the fascia that surrounds the muscles forms scar tissue and adhesions. These two alone can cause decrease in motion, pain, and even contribute to further injury. Think of adhesions like this; your muscles are pretty much a bunch of ropes packed together all moving in different directions and always rubbing together, injuries fray those ropes and when frayed ropes rub together they cause more fraying.
According to the U.S. News website, their Health & Wellness writer had this to say: Although physical therapy is often the first line of defense in rehabbing a running injury, many athletes and runners have started to rely on sports medicine-trained chiropractors. While physical therapy can focus on strengthening and coordination, chiropractic care is designed to improve joint mobilization, making sure that all the joints in the body are moving correctly.
