Sports Injury in San Antonio TX: If you’re an athlete, you understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help you heal faster when you’ve suffered sports injuries and helps to prevent them.
Sports Injuries Can Limit Your Performance and Cause Pain
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. As an active person, it is important for you to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries happen. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and decrease your athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports Injuries can Cause Further Injuries if Not Treated
Chiropractors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Comprehensive Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, our trained staff will perform a full evaluation. We will construct a treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, chiropractors treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles and more. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury. If you’re experiencing pain from a sports injury, consider seeing a chiropractor. You may want to schedule regular check-ups to prevent injuries and to keep your body performing properly.

When I first met Dr. Oliver, I was suffering from sharp pain that traveled down my arms from my neck. After a diagnosis and commitment to try to get better, I began a full regimen of exercise and adjustments. I found the information about the seriousness of my condition very informative and encouraging. Dr. Oliver not only explained the treatments that were going to take place, but gave me the opportunity to ask questions without pressure. It wasn’t long after the meeting and a scheduled plan of treatment that I had my first visit with Dr. Charles Oliver. I have become a believer that with a commitment to doing the prescribed exercises and getting regular adjustments, that you can reverse your back pain and feel normal again. After some weeks of treatment, I can honestly state that the pain is gone from my neck to my shoulders. I have also noticed that my sitting posture is less cumbersome and my overall bodily flexibility has improved by 100%. Everyone assisting the doctor does a great job with stretching and massage. Everyone is very helpful and makes sure I always have the best experience possible. So much so that I don’t want to leave! And they work with me when it comes to scheduling since I have to rearrange a lot of times as to when I can come in. I’m glad I went and grateful for the care and treatment from Dr. Oliver and the staff at Comprehensive. Overall, signing up for regular chiropractic appointments was the push that I needed to propel me into the total package of healthy living. Comprehensive Chiropractic is my one stop shop for healthy living. I have a community to learn with, a community to challenge me, and a committed team to help me reach my health goals.
Dr. Oliver is awesome! I came to see him with a running injury, and after a few visits he had me running pain free again!
Dr. Oliver prescribed a plan for me that has COMPLETELY worked and made all pain disappear. What sets him apart from others is that he also made a path to solve the underlying problem that caused the pain in the first place. His employees who take me through all the exercises are simply OUTSTANDING in manners and professionalism. I call them ‘my angels’.
Go here. Go here. Go here if you are having problems. A 100% satisfied recommendation!
I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
Dr. Oliver is one of the top two doctors I have ever visited with. Today was my first visit at his clinic and all I can say is WOW!! The office and Dr. Oliver really take the time to explain everything to you and make sure to maintain communication amongst each other. Dr. Oliver is a very intelligent, compassionate, understanding, and yet a caring doctor. You can definitely tell his number one priority is to help you feel better. I feel very fortunate to have found an office like his and look forward to getting better.
Let me just tell you about the best medical experience I have ever had. I went to Dr. Oliver for a specific problem after a failed attempt at chiropractic care in another office. He and his staff listened to me and offered me treatment plans to improve not only my back but my overall health. I didn’t know how bad I’d been feeling until I began to feel better! They take great lengths to offer personalized care and really get to know their patients. I would highly recommend this office, Dr. Oliver and his staff for any ailments you may be having.
I have had chronic headaches and neck pain since early childhood. I have been to 6 chiropractor’s in my life. Some gave me temporary relief of pain but they never took care of the underlying problem. In 2016, I learned about Dr. Oliver who is a Physical Therapist & a Chiropractor. I started going to see him and through his complete and thorough approach he is changing the curves in my spine. I rarely have a headache and only periodic neck pain when I haven’t done the exercises he taught me. I feel empowered that I can now do something to help myself! Recieving care from Dr. Oliver, who is both skilled and friendly, has been life changing for me. I write this review in hopes that others may find lasting relief for yourselves through Dr. Oliver’s complete approach.
I originally found Dr. Oliver when I was looking for someone to help me with ongoing foot issues. As a marching band director I had been referred to a podiatrist and told that I might be looking at surgery. I wasn’t convinced and wanted to try dealing with any underlying issues first so I went looking for a chiropractor who was also a physical therapist. I was convinced that spinal alignment was part of the issue and that the podiatrist would send me to PT first.
When I met with Dr. Oliver and he evaluated my issue he was very honest that he had not treated this particular issue before and that he was willing to work through a course of treatment to get my hip issues straightened out and work on my feet at the same time and see what we could do. That course of treatment was successful and I went on my merry way very happy to have avoided surgery.
Three years later I’m back and addressing a different set of issues that I have been ignoring for a long time. By the time I got to Dr. Oliver I was in so much pain that I was struggling to do my job. Dr. Oliver not only evaluated my structural condition but my overall nutrition and health. He laid out a plan for treatment that addressed not just the underlying structural issues but also helped me to identify the nutritional issues and other health issues that I need to be addressing. We’re well into my treatment plan and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in years. I’m committed to doing what I need to to feel better and so thankful to find Dr. Oliver and his staff!
