Our Noninvasive Approach to Addressing Sports Injuries and Whiplash

man golfing outdoorsWith so many athletic and leisure activities available, it’s not surprising that sports injuries and whiplash in Sanford are a common occurrence. But there are some steps you can take to help minimize your chance of injury, or to facilitate healing if you’ve already been injured:

  • Stretching
  • Maintaining proper posture
  • Adequate recovery time after activities
  • Chiropractic care

Common Injuries

The incidence of whiplash and sports injuries increases as we age. We need more stretching and more recovery time than we did when we were younger. If you haven’t been on the water since 2012 and you decide to spend a weekend jet skiing and wakeboarding, you’re likely to suffer the consequences of sprains or strains.

Golfing may look like a relaxing game, but it applies tremendous rotational forces to the body. This “relaxing” game can take quite a toll on the joints of your body.

People think of whiplash as an automobile accident injury, but it can be caused by a number of things. You can even get whiplash surfing when your neck stretches too far in one direction and then immediately in the opposite direction.

The Chiropractic Connection

These injuries are more common as we get older because our ligaments lose elasticity. Getting regular chiropractic care can help in two ways:

By restoring proper nervous system function through chiropractic adjustments, your body can function optimally to help minimize the loss of elasticity that contributes to certain injuries.

If you’ve already been injured, chiropractic care removes interferences in your nervous system, which allows your body to work the way it was designed and heal itself faster and better—naturally.
