Sports Injuries

If you’ve ever experienced a sporting related injury, you will undoubtedly be aware of just how painful it can be. From a torn ligament or sprained ankle to severe cramp or back pains, such injuries can take time to heal and some never fully heal. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, our chiropractors in Dubai are skilled in treating and managing a wide range of sports injuries.

Our extensive knowledge and proven techniques will not only speed your recovery but also increase the chance of injury completely healing. Furthermore, our treatments will also help to relieve the majority of your pain so that your injury doesn’t interfere with your daily routine.

Causes

As the name suggests, sports injuries are usually associated with any sporting activity. That being said, any form of physical exertion can bring on an injury if the appropriate care is not taken. Causes can include:

  • Impact from a fall or heavy blow
  • Incorrect form or technique
  • Using the wrong or damaged equipment
  • Over exertion

Such injuries involve sprains, strains and tears and in more serious cases, even dislocated or broken bones. From the muscles and connective tissue to your bones and joints, any part of the body can be injured. Many of the sports injuries in Dubai treated by our team involve athletes and are usually a result of repetitive strain, over-training or forceful impacts.

If you’ve suffered a sports injury and are wondering what our chiropractors in Dubai can do, please see below.

Treatments

At Blue Tree Clinics, our main goal is to help alleviate your pain and reduce inflammation to assist in restoring functionality to the affected area. Our main focus is on the neck, shoulders, knees, ankles and back as these are the areas that are most prone to sports-related injuries. Not only do our techniques help to relieve tension, but they also promote a quicker rate of recovery too.

To start with, our chiropractors in Dubai will perform a complete assessment of the following areas of your body:

  • Spine
  • Extremities
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Joints

They will ask you a series of questions about your activities as well as check to see if your bones are correctly aligned and balanced. After which, our chiropractors will suggest a treatment that is best suited to your individual needs. The two most common types of treatment that we can provide you with our spinal manipulation and mobilisation.

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation is a more hands-on process that involves putting the patient into various positions before administering a manual impulse to the affected area. The purpose of this is to assist in realigning joints as well as muscles while relieving any built-up pressure. As gas is released, pressure and inflammation are reduced providing the patient with much-needed relief.

Spinal Mobilisation

Whereas spinal manipulation can be quite uncomfortable, spinal mobilisation is a far gentler method. This is ideal for patients with a lower pain threshold as well as patients whose physical condition makes spinal manipulation unsuitable. At Blue Tree Clinics, we have access to a wide range of sophisticated tools as well as an extensive knowledge of basic stretching techniques that will achieve guaranteed results.

To provide the best success rate for treating sports injuries in Dubai, we also use ice, electric and heat stimulation methods as part of our treatment programs.

“During a recent football match, I fell and twisted my knee badly – I was in so much pain, could barely walk and was afraid that my career might be over before it had even started. The team at Blue Tree Clinics were wonderful and thanks to them my knee is healing quite nicely – with any luck, I’ll be playing football again in no time!”
