Toronto chiropractic manipulation care for everyday sports injuries are recommended by members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. 

CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION FOR SPORTS-RELATED BACK PAIN
 
Low back pain in adult athletes is common with a lifetime prevalence of 63%. The 12-month prevalence was 51%. Risk factors were a previous occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and times of load increase and exposure to these. (1) How might it be treated? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine reported using a number of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain issues. A recent survey of these physicians reported that 88% of the 11% who replied that they suggested CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the last 12 months. The top 3 types of CAM suggested were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians recommended at least one such CAM option in the past 12 months. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most advocated. Family/general family practice physicians recommended chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. Female more than male physicians were more prone to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic welcomes all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation tops the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and useful.

Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Osteoporosis Preventative Diet and Nutrition

Osteoporosis evolves later in life yet is preventable by changing diet and lifestyle starting in childhood. Improved nutrition and a reduction of sugar, saturated fat, sodium, and phosphorous are good starts. Adequate levels of vitamin D and calcium are quite vital along with vitamins K, C, Bs, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper, fluorine, boron, silicon, and manganese. Diet recommendations include increased dairy, fish, fruits, and vegetables intake.
