Up to 40% of athletes suffer from back pain, and many are forced to sit on the sidelines as a result. You may wonder what treatment option will help you return to play as quickly and safely as possible.
A study suggests that chiropractic is the best option for athletes with back pain. The study compared a number of treatments and found that chiropractic and heat therapy provided the strongest benefits with the least amount of side-effects.
If back pain is keeping you out of the game, a chiropractor can identify the source of your symptoms and develop a individualized treatment plan to make your return to play efficient and safe.
