Our definition of an athlete is anyone that enjoys being active. If you enjoy walking, biking, running, golf, tennis, yoga, lifting weights, walking the dog/cat, playing with your children or grandkids, you are an athlete. At some point, your body will need help keeping up with the "speed of life" and Spine & Sports Chiropractic wants to keep you moving.
There are good reasons why the athlete should seek a sports chiropractor for the treatment and rehabilitation of a sports injury. Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Most physicians have not had special training in sports medicine or rehabilitation. Consequently, even outstanding physicians who don't treat athletes regularly often make mistakes in the diagnosis and treatment of athletes' neuromusculoskeletal problems.
It is also observed that the cumulative effects of constant athletic small stresses over a long duration can give rise to the same difficulties as severe sudden stress. Spinal injuries in sports constitute only about three percent of all athletic injuries. Thus, the chiropractor must be well prepared to manage the various musculoskeletal injuries that occur away from the spine. It must be recognized that in the management of athletic injuries, the patient must get complete recovery, or he or she is no longer an athlete.
Spine & Sports Chiropractic provides state of the art comprehensive care by combining chiropractic, physical therapy, rehabilitation and patient education to eliminate symptoms, restore full function and promote a healthy lifestyle.
