McHenry 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 12-month prevalence was 51%. Risk factors were a prior episode of low back pain, high training volume, and periods of load increase and exposure to these. (1) How might it be treated? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine are recorded 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 had prescribed CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the past year. The top 3 types of CAM recommended were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians recommended at least one such CAM option in the past 12 months. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most recommended. Family/general family practice physicians recommended chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. More female than male physicians were more prone to recommend massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic welcomes all referrals and is grateful that our chiropractic spinal manipulation is high on the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and effective.

McHenry CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis develops later in life yet is preventable by modifying diet and lifestyle starting in childhood. Improved nutrition and a decrease in consumption 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.
