Athletes and Vancouver Chiropractic: Keep the Game Going!

picture of man playing tennisVancouver Disc Centers loves its athletic patients! Athletes are in harmony their bodies and their sports and want to keep going. Vancouver Disc Centers loves it! The chiropractic treatment plan for our Vancouver neck pain and back pain patients always consists of patient participation. And this newest study about tennis players and their serves captivated us.

This new study of tennis players and back pain points to a link between back pain, the kinematics of the serve and the range of motion it demands. Funny enough, all the tennis players in one study reached the end of their lumbar spine range of motion while serving. (1) Wow! That’s pushing the spine! Coaches may want to help their players adjust their serves to protect their spines. Chiropractors like your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers may play a consulting role with such Vancouver athletic players on how to best perform without risking their spines.

And this is what chiropractors do for all their patients. Your Vancouver chiropractor wants to be sure you function at your ultimate capacity without the integrity of your spine and its normal kinematics. This goes for golfers, runners, marathoners and weekend warriors. The spine is a delicate system that must be respected, protected and nurtured so that it is able to perform up to par for your entire life.

Our chiropractic care is for you, to relieve back or neck pain and ward it off. Contact us today for a kinematic evaluation to keep your game – tennis, golf, basketball or whatever – up to par!
