Chiropractic Best Option for Sports-related Back Pain

656

Up to 40% of athletes suffer from back pain, and many are forced to sit on the sidelines as a result of their disability.With dozens of treatment options available, you may wonder which will allow you to return to play as quickly and as safely as possible.

A recent study suggests that chiropractic is the best option for athletes with back pain.

The study compared various treatments including several different medications, acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, chiropractic, laser treatments, ultrasound, and cold/heat therapy. Out of all those treatments, chiropractic adjustments and heat therapy produced the strongest clinical benefits with the least amount of side effects.

If back pain is keeping you out of the game, a chiropractor can identify the source of your symptoms and develop an individualized treatment plan to make your return to play efficient and safe.
