Whether amateurs or professionals, it is probable that most people will experience some type of injury related to a sport or fitness regimen. Today’s culture urges us to exercise in order to keep fit and to avoid weight gain. It is a fun way, either with a team or partner, to burn calories, tone muscles, and increase metabolism. Unfortunately, an injury can occur as the result of poor warm-up and stretching techniques, years of poor posture, or a previously undetected spine or joint problem.

Failing to receive the appropriate treatment promptly and continuing to overuse the injured area may prolong the healing process and result in a chronic injury, preventing the athlete from achieving his or her peak level of performance. Some will try to mask the symptoms and the pain with drugs. But if left untreated, the injury will only be compounded with time.

Before beginning an exercise program or training for an athletic event, check with your sports chiropractor for advice on ways to prevent injury. Here are a few guidelines to consider:

Back pain is one of the most common—and debilitating—ailments people face. And finding the right pain relief is no easy thing.  Many people often ask the question, “Can chiropractors help my back pain?” According to a 2015 National Institute of Health report, an estimated 27 million Americans are evaluated and treated by a chiropractor each year, mostly for back pain relief. The hallmark therapy of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation to alleviate back pain.

Chiropractic treatment is based on the assumption that back pain is caused by the misalignment of the spine. Spinal manipulation involves physical pushing, pulling, and methodical repositioning of the head, shoulders, neck, back, or hips.  This reduces the pressure on nerves and discs in the spine to relieve the pain.

Although the practice of spinal manipulation was once considered a fringe medical treatment for back pain, it is now being adopted by more medical doctors as a viable treatment option. The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society in their patient care guidelines included spinal manipulation as one of several options for practitioners to consider when ordinary, uncomplicated back pain didn't improve with self-care.

Your shoulder problem may stem from long-standing spinal stress, old injuries from childhood, new sports mishaps, car accident, arthritis, sleeping in an awkward position, and even chronic emotional stress. Damage occurs to the nerves that make up the brachial plexus as they exit the spinal column through openings between the bones. If the openings become smaller, the nerves may become compressed or impinged (commonly called “pinched”).

Depending on which of the brachial plexus nerves are involved, different symptoms and problems may be experienced, including,
