West Palm Beach chiropractic manipulation care for everyday sports injuries are recommended by members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. 

CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION FOR SPORTS-RELATED BACK PAIN
 
Low back pain in adult athletes is common with a lifetime prevalence of 63%. The annual prevalence was 51%. Risk factors included a previous occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and times of load increase and exposure to these. (1) How might it be treated? 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 recent survey of these physicians found that 88% of the 11% who replied that they suggested CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the last 12 months. The top 3 types of CAM recommended were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study reported 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. Female more than male physicians were more prone to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic welcomes all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation is high on the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and useful.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis evolves later in life yet is preventable by changing 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 consist of increased dairy, fish, fruits, and vegetables intake.
