Tips for Preventing Sports Injuries
Preventing the need for sports injury treatment is still the best ‘medicine.’ Wearing the recommended gear for your sport such as helmets and protective pads is always advisable to prevent back, neck and shoulder injuries. Another way to prevent sports injuries is to strengthen the muscles that work hardest in your activities in addition to toning your central core, which is the powerhouse of the body. Physical therapy, moderate weight training, and regular chiropractic care are excellent ways to get stronger and healthier to prevent future injuries.
