Chiropractor As Sports Team Doctor

Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge. That's why you'll find chiropractors as "team doctors" for professional, college, high school, junior high and elementary school football, basketball, baseball, ice hockey, handball, rugby, soccer and weightlifting teams. That's also why chiropractic has been used by champions : Drew Pearson and Joe Montana of football ; and Robert Parish and Jeff Hornacek of basketball, and so on. American football and rugby players can potentially injure anyone of the moving joints in the body, such as neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, back, ribs, hip, knee, ankle. Due to the high velocity nature of the sport most common subluxation (misalignment) associates with american football and rugby player are the neck, low back, knees, shoulders and ribs. Subluxation can potentially cause nerve damage to the injure area. When this occurs, the player's level of competition decreases due to diminish function to the muscles and joints. Correcting subluxation cause by the high velocity collision in American football and rugby is what chiropractors are awesome at doing. Words can not describe the benefit of correcting subluxation through a precise chiropractic adjustment. The body will thank you when it's straight and working properly.

Athletes and Cervical Injuries

Serious cervical spine injuries among athletes (e.g., fractures, dislocations) generally occur as a result of axial loading. Whether resulting from a hockey player pushed into the boards head first, a football player striking an opponent with the crown of his helmet, youth soccer "header" injuires, or a poorly executed dive into a shallow body of water where the subject strikes his or her head on the bottom, the fragile cervical spine is compressed between the rapidly decelerated head and the continued momentum of the body.

Neck Injuries

Cervical disk injuries in football are injuries associated with neurological deficits, radicular symptoms, or radiological evidence of disk degeneration, but not with a fracture or a dislocation of the cervical spine. The majority of the radicular signs and symptoms are from the fourth and fifth cervical root. The roentgenographic changes are most common at the fourth and fifth intervertebral disk spaces. Most of the cases respond well to adjustments and simple cervical collar and cervical traction. The athletes who present with radicular signs and symptoms may require up to five months to return to full sports activities, and 60% of these may have residual symptoms after completion of treatment.
