Sports Injuries

Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge. It improves your athletic ability by helping keep you healthy and in top form by keeping minor injuries from becoming major ones.

Athletes under chiropractic care were compared with a control group that received no care for agility, balance, power, speed reaction and hand reaction time. After six weeks, the chiropractic group had a 10.7% improvement while the control group has a 4.5% improvement.

After 12 weeks, the chiropractic group improvement was 16.7%!

Take, for example, golf, tennis, racquetball and handball.

Swinging a club or racquet or throwing a ball are all one-sided activities which can cause the spinal column to lose its natural balance.

Dr. Hakes and Spille balance your spinal column and relieves stress on your muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves.

Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign your spine and the structures near it.

A trauma to anywhere in the body can damage your spine a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder or torso can radiate to it.

If you play any sport you should receive a chiropractic spinal checkup to ensure that your spine is balanced and free from misaligned vertebrae causing pinched nerves (spinal subluxations).
