Rugby is a sport with a high level of contact, be it professional or amateur levels. Tackling and scrummaging can result in a huge amount of pressure being put on the entire body, while poor technique and inadequate warm-up and cool-down can also lead to injuries. Overuse injuries can also build up over time, causing long term problems if they are not properly dealt with.
The most common symptoms from rugby injuries are:
As experts in treating joint and muscle problems, chiropractors can help treat rugby problems, as well as preventing them in the first place.
Through the skilled and effective application of chiropractic manipulation, our experienced chiropractors will help restore the balance of your body and relieve any pain. We will aim to align the spinal bones and ensure the muscles, joints, and ligaments in the back are in perfect condition. This level of prevention will allow the entire body to function at an optimum level, reducing the risk of injury when playing rugby.
At Thorne Road, we can offer chiropractic treatment for the following rugby injuries:
Falls and tackles can cause impact injuries to the head, compressing the neck (cervical spine), which can result in neck and shoulder pain, as well as weakness in the arms. If these injuries are not properly addressed, they can cause long term damage.
Back and spinal injuries
The trauma of tackles can result in back and spinal injuries such as muscle strains, facet injuries, or disc-related injuries.
Rugby related knee injuries are usually caused by trauma, twisting, impact, or over-use.
Rugby players commonly suffer from plantar fasciitis, a painful soft tissue swelling caused by overuse or playing on wet ground. The pain is usually sharp and worsens when weight is applied.
Scrums and tackles put a strain on the shoulder joints, causing compression of the joints, sprains, bruising, fractures, and more.
