Preventing Sports Injuries -- Overuse Injuries
Nearly 75% of the households in the United States with school-aged children have at least one child who plays organized sports. Participating in sports is arguably one of the best ways to help our children and young people stay fit, develop athletic skills, make friends and learn valuable lessons that will last them a lifetime.
However, young athletes have special needs because their developing bodies are more prone to injury. Consequently, each year more than 3.5 million children ages 14 and under receive medical treatment for sports injuries. High school athletics account for another 2 million injuries each year.
We at Christopher Chiropractic believe that chiropractic care is an important part of improving the athletic performance of our local athletes and helping to prevent lifelong complications from sports injuries.
