Quick recovery for sports injuries:
Keeping you in the game
Many of our patients come to our clinic to get back to playing sports and exercising after an injury. Whether its golf, tennis, basketball, yoga, or swimming, normal body mechanics are required. We have all had injuries or painful conditions that prevented us from our normal activity, but when it interferes with exercise it can lead to a downward spiral of inactivity. We have seen too many cases of back pain that leads to inactivity that leads to muscle weakness, weight gain, and further pain and inactivity. This can be a vicious cycle. It’s important, whether you’re a weekend warrior, a daily jogger, or an elite athlete, to get back to activity as soon as possible after an injury is healed.
Here are a couple of great examples of how chiropractic has helped the best in the world stay in their sports…
"Chiropractic was the key to keeping me in the game" - Jerry Rice
Jerry Rice had one of the longest and most successful careers in NFL history, playing for 20 years straight, and holding over 100 NFL records, including most NFL touchdown receptions in a career. Chiropractic care helped keep him on the field well past the average career of an NFL player (which is only 3-6 years). He credits a lot of his ability to recover from injuries on the field to his chiropractic care.
John Isner (top ranked American tennis player) talks about his chiropractor after winning the Miami Open: "It's not anything that he did [Isner’s chiropractor, Dr. Cordial] this week. It's what he's done through the course of the six years that we have been together," Isner said. "And I have been very healthy for six years, as well, I will knock on wood. That is in large part to him: adjusting, putting this machine on me, or massage. It's everything. There is so much that goes into it."

Whether its keeping the top athletes in the world at their best, or helping the weekend golfer on the course for another couple of years, chiropractic can help athletes in many areas. Back pain is one of the most common and debilitating of the sports injuries, which chiropractic is suited to treat more effectively than most other modalities, including medications like NSAIDS and opiods. Other common sports injuries chiropractors treat are shoulder sprains, hip strains, tennis elbow, and whiplash injuries in contact sports like football and hockey.
