Sports Injuries

Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign the spinal column:  a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder, or torso always radiates to the center of the body - that's why a chiropractic checkup is needed when you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury.  Chiropractic is needed in fact, even when medical procedures may be also necessary.

Why?  If an injury is serious enough to need medical care, the spine is almost always damaged to a greater or lesser degree.  Further, medical doctors are simply not trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations - that is the realm of the doctor of chiropractic.

As superstar Joe Montana stated, "I only wish I had tried chiropractic care a few years ago when I first started having back pain, and maybe this surgery would never have happened."

Evander Holyfield, World Heavy-weight Boxing Champion, echoes the attitude of many world-famous athletes, "I found that going to a chiropractor helps my performance.  Once I drove 20 miles to see a chiropractor before a flight.  I have to have my adjustment before I go into the ring."

Does your neighborhood sports team need a doctor of chiropractic?  Why not ask your chiropractor if he or she is interested in working with them?
