Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge, improve your athletic ability by helping to keep you healthy and in top form and by keeping minor injuries from becoming major ones. That's why you will find chirpractors as "team doctors" for professional, olympic, college, high school, junior high, and elementary sports. Dr. Huffer has been a certified sports physician since 2001, and he will balance your spinal column and releive stress on your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign your spine and the structures near it. A trauma to anywhere in the body can damage your spine - a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder, or torso can radiate to it. Some common sports injuries we see are knee pain - sprain/baker's cyst/meniscus, foot pain - plantar fascitis/heel spurs, shoulder - rotator cuff/tendinits/bursitis, hand pain, elbow - tennis elbow/golfers elbow, neck pain, headaches, back pain - sprain/strain/sciatica/herniated disc, muscle pull, hip pain, groin pain, numbness, and ITB Syndrome. If you play any sport you should receive a chirpractic spinal checkup to unsure that your spine is balanced and free from misaligned berebrae causing "pinched" nerves (spinal subluxations).
