CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION FOR SPORTS-RELATED BACK PAIN
 
Adult athletes commonly experience back pain with a lifetime prevalence of 63%. The 12-month prevalence was 51%. Risk factors included a previous occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and periods of load increase and exposure to these. (1) What are treatment options? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine are documented as using a variety of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A new survey of these physicians reported that 88% of the 11% who answered that they suggested CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the past year. The top 3 types of CAM suggested were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians advocated at least one such CAM approach in the past year. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most advocated. Family/general family practice physicians suggested chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. More female than male physicians were more likely to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic invites all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation tops the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and effective.

Largo CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis evolves later in life yet is preventable by modifying diet and lifestyle beginning in childhood. Improved nutrition and a reduction of sugar, saturated fat, sodium, and phosphorous are good starts. Adequate levels of vitamin D and calcium are quite vital along with vitamins K, C, Bs, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper, fluorine, boron, silicon, and manganese. Diet recommendations include increased dairy, fish, fruits, and vegetables intake.
