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 were a previous occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and times of load increase and exposure to such. (1) What are treatment options? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine reported using a variety of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A new survey of these physicians found that 88% of the 11% who responded that they had 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 recommended at least one such CAM approach 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. Female more than male physicians were more likely to recommend 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.

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis develops later in life yet is preventable by changing diet and lifestyle starting 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 important along with vitamins K, C, Bs, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper, fluorine, boron, silicon, and manganese.
