Vancouver chiropractic manipulation care for common 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 prior episode of low back pain, high training volume, and periods of load increase and exposure to such. (1) How might it be treated? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine are documented as using a number of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A new survey of these physicians found that 88% of the 11% who replied that they had suggested CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the last 12 months. The top 3 types of CAM suggested were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians advocated at least one such CAM option in the past year. 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 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.

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.
