Why Choose Chiropractic for Youth Sports Injuries?

Written By Coastal Integrative Health on June 16, 2020

sports injuriesDid you know over 30 million kids and teenagers take part in some kind of organized sport? 

That’s great news because athletics are excellent tools for building healthy habits and friendships.

However, there’s also a darker side: Kids under 14 also sustain 3.5 million sports injuries every year. A third of all children’s injuries are due to sports. 

Fortunately, chiropractic offers a safe, personalized, and drug-free sports injury treatment. Here’s why it’s the right choice.

Why is Chiropractic the Right Sports Injury Treatment?

A chiropractic doctor will never tell you to ice it, take some aspirin, and wait for the pain to get worse until you need invasive surgery.

Instead, a chiropractic doctor will identify the source of the injury and take measures to mitigate long-term damage – right away.

Football, soccer, baseball, volleyball, wrestling – all sports require some type of impact, jumps, twists, and turns. Accidents happen but you can take some steps to prevent them. 

Chiropractic doctors understand this and they’re musculoskeletal experts. They’ll provide adjustments, exercises, and stretches to not only help you heal from your injury but prevent future injuries as well.

It’s no surprise that over 30% of NFL teams have an official chiropractor on-staff to treat their players.
