Can chiropractic care resolve sports injuries?

Sports injuries vary in type and severity; however, most sports injuries (other than fractures) can be helped with chiropractic services. 

Most sports injuries include acute damage to muscles and/or ligaments and a natural inflammatory response. With the exception of a fractured bone, almost all other sports injuries can benefit from one or more of the treatment options we provide in our State College chiropractic office. 

Nothing is more frustrating than working for weeks, if not years, to prepare yourself for competition only to be sidelined by an acute injury.  

We understand how important it is for you to get back in the game quickly. By providing you with a comprehensive evaluation and a tailored treatment plan, we can get you off the sidelines and back to playing the sport you love. 

Sports injuries can be acute or chronic. The pain can be mild or severe. Regardless of what type of injury is keeping you from performing at 100%, our chiropractic office has a treatment for you. 

Almost all professional sports teams in the United States offer chiropractic care to their athletes. It is time for you to experience the benefits for yourself. 

You can’t afford to be on the sideline. Let’s get started now. 

Common types of sports injuries & why they happen

Working with athletes and helping them stay safe is one way that we contribute to the State College community. Our chiropractic clinic enjoys seeing our patients performing at their peak, free from pain. 

Some of our sports injury patients include:

  • High school athletes
  • College athletes
  • Olympic and World competition medalists 
  • Weekend warriors
  • Yogis
  • Runners
  • CrossFitters
  • Skiers 
  • Tennis players
  • Golfers
  • Wrestlers


No matter your sport, chiropractic care can help you move and function to the best of your ability. Preventative care is a great way to stay safe and thrive in sports activity. Even with a plan for prevention, the dynamic nature of sports performance can still lead to injury. 


Some of the common types of sports injury we see include:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Knee injuries 
  • Tennis elbow  
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Shin splints
  • Hamstring strain
  • Disc herniation
  • Nerve impingement 
  • Achilles tendon injury
  • Shoulder injury 


A tremendous amount of stress and strain is applied to your joints, muscles, and ligaments when you perform athletically at your max. Sports injuries can arise from inflammation building up over time due to repetitive stress as well as acute injuries that occur in a sudden moment. 

Some of the most common reasons for sports injury include:

  • Improper (or non-existent) warm-ups and cool-downs 
  • Overtraining
  • Pushing through pain without seeking treatment 
  • Forceful falls, blows, or impacts
  • Repetitive motions
  • Habitual improper movements and/or form


Non-acute inflammatory conditions like tendonitis will likely have a slow onset over time. At first, they may not be very painful; however, if left untreated, tendonitis pain can become severe and debilitating. 

Exercise makes us feel good. While exercising and playing sports, our bodies release endorphins and other hormones that make us feel good. A rush of adrenaline can often mask the beginning symptoms of a painful condition. This can result in overuse and overexertion injuries. Chiropractic care, massage therapy, and laser therapy can all help to recover from sports-induced overuse injuries.

Benefits of chiropractic care for your sports injury

Chiropractic care is highly effective and can remedy almost any soft tissue and joint injury at the source, ending discomfort and offering a full range of motion and function. Too many athletes turn to medication and surgery without first trying non-invasive treatments such as chiropractic care, massage, and laser treatment.

We aren’t opposed to medical treatment and surgery when needed, but our philosophy is that you should always start with the safest and least invasive treatment possible. In most cases, other than bone fractures and severe joint dislocations, we can quickly get athletes back to competition.

At our State College chiropractic clinic, you can depend on Dr. Brummert to keep you safe using evidenced-based techniques that are non-invasive. Our therapies help to aid your body in its natural healing process. We never aim to simply mask the symptoms but rather heal the injury. 


Some benefits of chiropractic care for your sports injury include:

  • Decreased pain
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Increased flexibility and range of motion
  • Improved quality of sleep and rest
  • Increased performance and focus
  • Improved joint function
  • Improved strength
  • Enhanced recovery after an event
  • Decreased stress


If you are in pain, no matter how mild or severe, don’t let it hinder your athletic performance. Call us today to see how chiropractic care can serve you.

Chiropractic treatments for sports injuries

In order to adequately assess your injury, we ask several questions to get a complete understanding of your condition. Following reviewing your medical history and the history of your current complaint, we provide a focused physical exam. This allows us to hone in on the exact tissues causing your discomfort and tailor a treatment plan.

A proper diagnosis followed by a multifaceted treatment effort can get you back in the game as quickly as possible.
