Don’t Let Sports Injuries Keep You Down!

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Sports injuries are one of the most frequent causes of adolescent injury and a cause for concern.

All too often young athletes do not report injuries and sometimes disregard pain. This is of special concern because young bones are still growing and growth areas close to the joints are weak points. What may appear to be a sprain may be a growth plate injury which can result in crooked or stunted bone growth.

Regular chiropractic exams are the key to prevention, early recognition, and correction of spinal problems. Treatment consists of rest, therapy, and correcting mechanical abnormalities that may have lead to the injury.

Parents should remind young athletes about the importance of safety in sports.

At Back & Body we treat sports related injuries almost everyday. With our youth getting more and more involved with sporting events, the need for professional care is even more prevalent today.
