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

CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION FOR SPORTS-RELATED BACK PAIN
 
Adult athletes commonly experience back pain with a lifetime prevalence of 63%. The 12-month prevalence was 51%. Risk factors included 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 are recorded as 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 answered that they prescribed CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the past year. The top 3 types of CAM recommended were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study reported that 53.1% of physicians advocated at least one such CAM option in the past year. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most recommended. Family/general family practice physicians recommended chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. More female than male physicians were more likely to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic invites all referrals and is grateful that our chiropractic spinal manipulation tops the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and useful.

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.
