Dr. Brian of Delta Chiropractic Associates Inc. of Escanaba explains that many sports-related injuries involve the spine and can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance. Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become increasingly popular. Proper spinal function is essential for peak performance at work or play.

Dr. Brian explains. “Chiropractic care helps restore function to spinal joints that are “locked up”, fixated, and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Chiropractic manipulation, along with muscle stretching and strengthening can relieve the pain of “shin splints” and develop greater muscle strength to guard against re-injury.”

An aerobic exercise program or a plan of brisk walking can improve muscle tone and help avoid strains, sprains, and other activity-restricting health problems according to Dr. Brian.

Call Dr. Brian for a care plan based on your age, condition, and health objectives. Remember to prevent sports injuries by properly stretching, warm up/warm down exercises, and by staying in shape.

Yours in Health,
Dr. Brian Moravec
