An athlete’s body is more susceptible to chronic pain and discomfort. As young athletes, often times these warning signs are addressed with temporary pain medications, misdiagnosed as “growing pains” or even worse – ignored completely. If left untreated during the adolescent and young adult years, these stressors can lead to muscular and skeletal issues that affect performance both on and off the field. This discomfort has a treatable and preventable cause, and chiropractic adjustments, available for patients of ALL ages, are designed to provide relief in exactly the place where the body needs it most. Chiropractic adjustments can even help treat problems like ear infections, headaches and digestive issues.
There are times when athletes experience immediate injuries to joints and muscles that may not warrant an emergency room visit, but still require professional attention. At Integrated Body and Medicine, our medical specialists provide treatment and prevention techniques to help eliminate inflammation and pain to keep the body healthy.
