Because baseball often involves prolonged periods of rest punctuated by short bursts of strenuous muscular activity, players may be prone to injury. As hitters uncoil their bodies, significant rotational forces are applied to the neck, hips, and knees, while the elbows and shoulders may be subjected to extended ranges of motion. Pitching involves a host of other strenuous motions that invite injury and soreness. As a result, baseball players are vulnerable to herniated discs, shoulder tendinitis, torn rotator cuffs, “runner’s knee,” torn hip muscles, muscle spasms, and inflamed tendons.
To avoid pain and circumvent injury that might necessitate surgery, the chiropractor can assess players’ body alignment and make lasting biomechanical changes that prepare their bodies for competition. Being educated on some of the most common baseball injuries and their symptoms will enable an injured player to tell when the pain should be attended to by an experienced chiropractor, like our team at Family Practice of Chiropractic.
