What To Do If You Think You Have a Sports Injury

Taking part in sports is a great way to have fun, relax and get some exercise, but sometimes it can lead to injuries. You can minimise the risks by making sure that you warm up properly, make use of the correct safety equipment and don’t push yourself beyond your sensible limits. But just like any other physical activity, sometimes accidents just happen.

If you feel any pain while exercising you should always stop, whether you have noticed a sudden onset or the pain has developed slowly over time. If you carry on exercising on an injury it could make things worse and ultimately slow down your recovery.

If you suffer a sudden trauma, a deep cut or show signs of concussion following a blow to the head then you should go to your nearest emergency department as soon as possible. However, if your injury does not require immediate medical assistance then a chiropractor may provide a better solution for you.
