On Your Mark, Get Set…HealA Sports injury is an unfortunate risk we take when sending youngsters onto the field, into the pool, or out on the court. The fall is the season of football games and cheerleading stunts, cross country running and volleyball spiking. Back to School Athletics also means back to sports medicine for young growing bodies. Consider having a family chiropractor that you can get to know and trust for any potential chiropractic situations.
An Orlando chiropractor can provide sports massages and examine muscle, joint and bone health before, during and after each season. Being prepared with more than just band aids and athletic tape will go a long way in the long run. Let’s take a look at a few helpful reminders for reducing unnecessary injury!
- Never skip STRETCHING exercises to loosen muscle constriction
- Stretching reduces pulled muscles, tears and strains.
- Don’t underestimate the power of ample WARM UP activity
- Warm up muscles and joint movement so ligaments are not shocked when rigorous play commences.
- Proper amounts of SLEEP replenishes the body
- Rest and revitalization from overplay is important to reduce fatigue that can cause painful mistakes.
- Time away from strenuous activity allows the body to strengthen and prepare for future similar movement.
- Make positive decisions with what they EAT & DRINK
- Focus on the intake for a greater output.
- Capitalize on proteins & legumes, pasta, nuts & antioxidant rich berries, and don’t underestimate the power of the almighty banana.

- Bumps and bruises can be overlooked but still need attention so that they don’t make matters worse.
- Play a round of Name-That-Pain with your child every so often to ensure small aches don’t lead to big problems.
