With Spring Break in full swing and summer approaching quickly, water sports injuries and off-road injuries are on the rise. Both water sports and off-roading are popular spring and summer activities, but each activity can present a unique set of dangers and potential injuries.

Getting ejected from an off-road vehicle, rolling over, or crashing into another vehicle are all risks of participating in this activity. If you have been injured while participating in water sports or off-roading activities, chiropractic treatment can help.

Let’s explore common injuries and treatments for off-road and water sports injuries.

The Most Common Water Sports Injuries and Incidents

Water sports – boating, skiing, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and jet skiing – are lots of fun but also present the risk of injury.

Here are a few common water sports injuries and incidents:

  • Wiping out while surfing
  • Being ejected from a boat or personal watercraft
  • Capsizing
  • Crashing into objects in the water

These accidents and similar ones can result in injuries to your neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles, and more. Whiplash is among the most common injuries caused when your body is forced to a sudden stop, such as by a wall of water. The whipping motion can cause damage to your muscles and ligaments, as well as injury to your spine and other joints.

The result of these water sports injuries is pain, numbness, stiffness, tingling, and other issues. Following any water sports injuries or accidents, seeking chiropractic care can ensure you get an accurate diagnosis and the needed treatment to avoid long-term problems. A professional chiropractor can help with proven effective non-invasive treatments designed to restore your health and alleviate your pain.

Off-Roading – The Risks

From jeeps to ATVs, go-carts to utility vehicles and dirt bikes, off-roading is exhilarating and fun, but there are many sports injuries and risks that are involved as well. Understanding the power of these vehicles, the associated risks, and how to operate them safely can help.

Even so, off-roading can result in accidents and injuries including dislocations, sprains, back and neck injuries, and soft-tissue trauma. These sports injuries may manifest with pain, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, soreness, difficulty breathing, a reduced range of motion, and nausea.

Just as with water sports injuries, following an accident, it is important to seek chiropractic care even when you don’t experience symptoms right away. Some injuries manifest days following the accident, making it crucial to visit a well-qualified chiropractor who can provide a full examination, accurate diagnosis, and a customized, non-invasive care plan for your injuries.
