How Chiropractic Keeps Young Athletes in the Game

At Back Care Plus, Dr. Hoover provides natural care for young athletes of all ages and abilities. Types of athletes he sees include

  • Cheerleaders
  • Soccer players
  • Dancers
  • Volleyball players
  • Football players
  • Baseball players
  • Archers
  • Basketball players
  • Track and field athletes

In our office, we see a wide range of injuries, depending on the sport. Many volleyball players come in for care to address their neck injuries. Baseball players get knee and ankle injuries. Shoulder injuries can afflict archers. Many football players are injured in the weight room or on the field, and we see low-back injuries in those cases. Wide receivers get shoulder injuries. Cross country runners often have low-back pain.

Natural Care-Something to Cheer About

Cheerleaders and dancers can also benefit from chiropractic care, as they often get injured. “With the tumbling and backflips that cheerleaders do, we see a lot of low-back injuries and neck injuries,” said Dr. Hoover. When his daughter did competitive cheerleading, he would attend her meets and provide on-site adjustments to the team.

Benefits of Sports Chiropractic

Chiropractic helps young athletes in the following ways:

  • Prevents injuries: By keeping your child’s spine aligned, they will be less likely to get injured.
  • Relieves pain naturally: Chiropractic care is an effective alternative to pain medication. And there are no side effects with our drug-free care.
  • Improves range of motion: Young athletes can experience increased flexibility and less stiffness with chiropractic care.
  • Shortens recovery time: Chiropractic adjustments help your child recover from sports-related injuries, and chiropractic care also helps promote healthy blood flow throughout the body, which may accelerate recovery.
  • Helps them stay game-ready: A patient of Dr. Hoover is a fast-pitch softball pitcher who’s such a phenom that she’s been offered a college scholarship since the 7th grade. She often suffers from shoulder and lower back pain, and Dr. Hoover can help her stay at the top of her sport.
