Sports Injuries Stopping You?
Looking for a sports injury chiropractor in SW Portland? Visit Prolific Wellness in Hillsdale. Most sports injuries are not actually broken bones, but instead internal and mostly soft tissue injuries. These can be from impact and trauma, repetitive use, or incorrect biomechanics while moving in sport. Leaving a sports injury untreated can result in more long-term harm if the injury does not heal correctly, or even just on-going pain.
If you’ve had a recent sports injury, a chiropractor will be able to help diagnose soft tissue damage from your symptoms, a proper history and exam. Further imaging like x-rays or MRI may be needed.
