We all know that participation in sports, and exercise in general, is a necessity for maintaining your health. Reqgular exercise helps strengthen your heart, muscles, bones, and joints. It’s also proven to reduce stress, along with many other benefits.
Unfortunately, injuries and sports sometimes go hand-in-hand. Quite often, injuries occur in folks who are just starting a sport as a form of exercise. They likely failed to use the proper safety equipment, proper form, or they simply just “over-did” it. Typical sports injuries occur around the ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows, and spine. So, before you take up any new activities, it’s always a good idea to discuss your planned regimen with your doctor of chiropractic. Dr. Davis has the experience to set you on the right path and help you minimize your chances of injury.
If you’re suffering from a recent or long-past sports injury, Dr. Davis can help you get back on the road to recovery. He has treated both professional and amateur athletes alike and has the expert knowledge to diagnose and treat most conditions.
With access to state-of-the-art X-ray, CT Scans, MRI, and Ultrasound providers, we will have the insight needed to treat your specific problem.
And for any issues requiring more specialized care, Dr. Davis has an extensive network of professional colleagues (orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management physicians, etc.) to which he can refer patients, if needed.
