Participants in highly competitive sports such as soccer, football, and gymnastics, are more prone to injury, but no sport is a truly “safe” sport. Non-contact sports such as tennis and golf produce many more injuries that require a doctor in the U.S. than most contact sports.
Sports that entail repetitive impact such as tennis and running expose participants to a high risk for lower back injuries. As high as 20 percent of all sports injuries involve the lower back or neck which are most often best treated with chiropractic therapy.
Contact sports such as soccer and football make the potential of injury to the cervical spine and neck very real potential problem. More than one-third of high school football players sustain some type of injury annually. People who participate in soccer are susceptible to both mild and serious head trauma, dizziness, headache, head traumas, neck pain and injury, and cervical spine damage. The trampoline and gymnastics also increase the risk of spinal cord injuries that result from falls or contact with hard surfaces.
Neck pain is one the most common complaints from those involved in sports. Some of the treatments provided for neck pain include physical therapy,traction, massage, and chiropractic care.
