Getting athletic injuries at some point is inevitable if you’re active in sports, whether a professional athlete or a hobbyist. These injuries can vary from mild to severe, but such activities increase your health risks. A chiropractor for athletic injuries has seen patients suffer from injuries from either high-contact activities or even solo activities like swimming and running.
Sometimes, these injuries can affect you beyond the visible wounds, bruises, or sore muscles. Some patients even complain about pain and discomfort manifesting weeks or months after the incident, which can lead to long-term symptoms. This can be due to a misalignment in the upper cervical spine that can occur following the athletic injury.
If you notice headaches, migraines, vertigo, back pain, general cognitive function issues, or other symptoms happening too often without apparent reason, perhaps a previously endured injury is to blame. They may have influenced the misalignment of your upper cervical spine.
Restoring the alignment and balance in your Upper Cervical spine can help you experience relief from long-term symptoms that stem from your injury. In addition, gentle Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments can help reverse the effects of your injury following the misalignment your upper cervical spine endures.
Consult an Upper Cervical Chiropractic doctor to assess if your upper cervical spine is aligned correctly. Make sure you mention any possible incidents involving injury or trauma, even from many years back, during your assessment that can be relevant information while they evaluate your condition. Only through their help can you confirm and correct misalignments in the topmost bones of your spine.
