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 were a prior occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and periods of load increase and exposure to such. (1) What are treatment options? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine reported using a number of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A recent 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 recommended were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians recommended at least one such CAM approach in the past 12 months. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most recommended. Family/general family practice physicians suggested chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. Female more than male physicians were more prone to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic invites all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation tops the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and useful.

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis develops later in life yet is preventable by modifying diet and lifestyle starting in childhood. Improved nutrition and a decrease in consumption 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. Diet recommendations consist of increased dairy, fish, fruits, and vegetables intake.
