There’s nothing quite like the excitement of a football game. The energy of the crowd, the excitement of the game, and the power of human athletic ability all come together to create an event that you won’t soon forget. But if you’re injured on the field, all your excitement turns to concern.


At Olson Family Chiropractic in Lakeville, our sports rehab chiropractors are experienced at helping injured young athletes like you get back to their favorite sport faster. Here are a few ways we help football players get back on the field after an injury.


Common Football Injuries

Football can be an athletically challenging sport. Unfortunately, the speed of gameplay and physical contact with football can cause players to get injured from time to time. There are a number of common injuries we often see with football players.


The most common injury associated with football is a sprain or a muscle strain. Players can also end up with “turf toe” from jumping or running on artificial turf. ACL tears and Achilles tendonitis are some other common injuries.


Here are a few more common injuries we work with:

●        Muscle contusions
