  What happens? When we exercise/play sport, there are certain parts of our body that take a large amount of the load. Because of the way we weight bear, our lower backs is one of the areas that experiences the most significant loads. When we are putting any part of body under increased load, it can make it more susceptible to injury. What is causing the soreness? Soreness after sport can be due to various factors, with various levels of severity. Some of the most common causes include:
  • D.O.M.S (Delayed onset muscle soreness)
  • Muscle Strain
  • Chiropractic Subluxation
  • Spinal joint sprain
How do I get relief? If you are experiencing more pain than expected after sport, seek advice from one of our chiropractors. They will be able to identify what the cause of your pain is, whilst ruling out other more severe injuries. The treatments for these common injuries can include the following:
  • D.O.M.S → Ice and soft tissue therapy such as massage
  • Muscle strain → Icing, reduction of inflammation, then proceeding to massage
  • Chiropractic Subluxation → Chiropractic manipulations, mobilisations and soft tissue therapy
  • Spinal Joint Sprain → Icing and reducing inflammation before proceeding to more specialized treatments
For lower back pain, Chiropractors are one of the best practitioners to see to identify, diagnose and treat lower back pain. How do I prevent lower back injury? Our posture can impact how much strain we put our low back through, chatting to your chiropractor about your posture and how to correct it can help with your bodies bio-mechanics, reducing your risk of injury. Research is showing that one of the best things you can do to prevent lower back injury, re-aggravations and/or to help recover from a lower back injury, is to build up and strengthen your “core” abdominal muscles. There are deep abdominal muscles at the bottom of our stomach called the  ‘Transverse Abdominal’ muscles. Many of us do not know how to properly activate these muscles, increasing our risk of lower back injury. If you are a sportsperson and have any questions about recovering from or preventing injury, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic on 9017 4784 or make an online enquiry.
