Sport injuries

In the Netherlands there is a growing group of people who participate in sport on a regular basis. You can tell this by the popularity of big running contests like the Dam tot Dam loop and the Marathon of Rotterdam. Studies show that sport and exercise are good for your health. And also that inactivity is worse for your health than most people think. The good side of sports also has a down side: sports injuries. If there is a weak link in your body, this will probably lead to complaints while performing sports. This weak link results in local complaints or complaints on the compensating muscles.

Weak chains

A person always moves in a chain. This means, that there are always multiple muscle groups needed to create a dynamic movement. If something is disturbing the chain, for example, a muscle weakness, it has an effect on the entire movement. The weak link would need to be compensated for elsewhere in the chain before someone is able to perform the movement. Often we see that it is precisely at the spot where the body is compensating the weak link that complaints occur. Then, when someone only does something about these complaints, the weak spot will still be the source of problems when you next participate in sports. Therefore it is necessary to resolve the weak link. A chiropractor at MoveWell will discover the weak link through an extensive mobility exercise, which is used for a diagnose of the sports injury. After that the chiropractor will tackle your sports injury by using different treatment techniques. In addition, home exercises are given to train your body. This way your sports injury will be resolved and your body strengthened for a new sports goal.
