Last time I spoke about sports injuries. I am a certified chiropractic sports physician (CCSP) and have been treating those with sports injuries from the beginning of my career. Did you know that you can get the same care professional athletes get when they are injured? Let’s be honest, professional athletes generally can have around-the-clock care and access to all the bells and whistles that you and I probably wont get when we get hurt. However, an injury to a pro athlete is often the same injury you and I get. A major difference is, we cant miss work and tend to gut-it-out through those injuries. I don’t know about you, but if I’m not working, I usually am not making any money. So, if you or the young athlete in your family suffers a sports or non-sports injury, think Chiropractic. It works.
I had a great Fathers Day and hope everyone was able to spend some time with dad over the weekend, talk to him or share a couple of great memories of time spent with him. Dads (and moms) all over the country have taught their kids how to play various types of sports. Speaking of sports, did you know chiropractic physicians treat sports injuries of all types. In fact many chiropractors, such as myself, further their education by taking specific post-graduate classes to deal with sports injury and get additional certifications in treating those types of injuries. Those injuries could be everything from sprains and strains to concussions. So next time you or a child has a sports injury, talk to your chiropractor, I’m positive they can help!!
Last time I discussed some of the more surprising benefits of walking. I wanted to add a bit about walking and its effects on boosting the immune system. A large study of men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who only exercised once a week or less. Even if they did get sick, it was for shorter duration and with milder symptoms. That sounds pretty good for just 20 minutes a day!!
