Whether you’re a football professional or you play in an amateur league, the sport has a high injury rate.
The most common football injuries are caused by bruises and strains to muscles, or by strains to the joints, particularly the leg joints. They are typically due to trauma, such as collisions with other players, bad tackles, or awkward landings. Sometimes injuries are the result of repetitive stress and strain to the muscles and joints in the legs, knees, or feet. Heading the ball may cause a similar injury to what is seen in milder whiplash-type accidents.
As experts working with joint and muscle problems, chiropractors can help treat football problems, as well as preventing them in the first place.View our company video here

Ankle injuries are the most common football injury, if they aren’t treated properly, they can cause long term issues. Chiropractic treatment for ankle injuries usually involves adjusting the joints in the foot and ankle and reducing the tension in the surrounding muscles.
Hamstring injuries are often caused by sudden movements or sprinting. Tension in the hamstring can also be linked to the joints in the lower back and pelvis. Chiropractic techniques can help to resolve and prevent hamstring injuries.
Recurring leg injuries
Recurring leg injuries are often the result of problems with the mechanics of the foot. The loss of the arch in the foot, for example, can lead to knee pain, hip pain, and lower back problems. Chiropractic treatment can help prevent and address these issues.
