Athletes and Carrolltown Chiropractic: Keep the Game Going!

picture of man playing tennisGormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation cherishes its athletic patients! Athletes are tuned into their bodies and their sports and want to keep going. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation loves it! The chiropractic treatment plan for our Carrolltown neck pain and back pain patients always includes patient participation. And this latest research about tennis players and their serves intrigued us.

This new study of tennis players and back pain points to a link between back pain, the kinematics of the serve and the range of motion it demands. Interestingly, all the tennis players in one study attained the end of their lumbar spine range of motion while serving. (1) Wow! That’s pushing the spine! Coaches may want to help their players adapt their serves to protect their spines. Chiropractors like your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may play a consulting role with such Carrolltown athletic players on how to best perform without risking their spines.

And this is what chiropractors do for all their patients. Your Carrolltown chiropractor wants to be sure you perform at your ultimate capacity without risking the integrity of your spine and its normal kinematics.
