Both weight training and bodybuilding when performed correctly can be beneficial for the body, promoting bone health, cardiovascular fitness, and a healthy metabolism. They are, however, also extremely demanding sports, putting significant and prolonged stress and strain on the body’s joints and muscles.
Many weight lifting injuries are treatable and preventable using chiropractic techniques.
At Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic in Doncaster, our chiropractors have years of experience working with joint and muscle problems. Using our first-class knowledge of the sport and the body, we can help treat weight training injuries, as well as preventing them in the first place.
Our chiropractors apply a range of proven chiropractic techniques, helping the body to restore balance and relieve pain caused by weight training. By aligning the spinal bones perfectly, we can help the entire body to function at the optimum level, reducing the risk of injury when lifting weights.
We can offer help for the following weight training injuries:
Muscle strains occur when the muscle fibres or tendon fibbers are torn as a result of overstretching or overloading. They can range from small tears with mild pain to a large amount of torn fibres, resulting in significant swelling and a loss of strength and mobility.
Knee pain is caused by weightlifting injuries such as patellar tendonitis – the inflammation of the knee. This is the result of the tendon becoming too tight or overused during lifts which include squats and lunges.
Neck pain can result from the overuse of the muscles in the neck and shoulder, strain on the joints in the neck, or a pinched nerve in the area. They are often caused by poor posture during weight lifting.
Rotator cuff injuries
These occur when one or more of the tendons in the shoulder becomes inflamed or even rips. It can be caused by overhead lifts, such as bench presses, lateral raises, or shoulder presses.
Weightlifting can be responsible for various types of back pain, including strained ligaments in the upper back, intercostal muscle strain in the upper back, spinal misalignment, and tendon strain in the lower back.
