Back Pain and Sports Injuries

Fargo, North Dakota Back Pain Treatment

We see many people with back pain in our Fargo, North Dakota chiropractic office, and we have great success in getting our patients out of pain. With an estimated 80 percent of the population dealing with some type of back issue at least once in their lives, there's a good likelihood that the same (if not higher) statistic applies to those who play sports. However, when an athlete experiences back pain, the effects are usually compounded because this typically means that he or she will be unable to play their sport of choice—and if they do, they could end up in greater pain as a result.

In a piece published in the journal Sports Health, several studies were reviewed and analyzed to determine what effect, if any, chiropractic had on low back pain in athletes. And what they discovered after sifting through all of the research is that chiropractic adjustments and heat were "the most strongly supported evidence-based therapies."

In other words, based on the studies and their findings, the authors concluded that chiropractic worked better than anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants. It even provided more positive results in regard to pain management and greater ease when performing daily activities than medical care, soft tissue treatment, and several other common back pain remedies people typically use in an effort to feel better.

Additionally, chiropractic is a natural treatment option which means that it won't negatively impact sports performance the way some medications and other treatment methods can. That makes it a top choice when it comes to keeping you out of pain and in the game.

Dr. Daniel Pozarnsky is here to help you recover from back pain, whether it's related to a sports injury or not. Give us a call in our Fargo, North Dakota today at (701) 893-7878 for an appointment.
