Healthy and Fit Athletes

The majority, if not all, sports are good, provided that the child prepares appropriately,” says Timothy Ray, DC, a member of the American Chiropractic Association’s Council on Sports Injuries and Physical Fitness. “Without proper preparation, playing any sport can turn into a bad experience. There are structural and physical developmental issues that need to be taken into consideration before children undertake certain sports.”

Encourage your child to:

  • Wear the proper equipment
  • Eat healthy meals
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Drink water
  • Drink milk
  • Avoid sugar-loaded, caffeinated and carbonated drinks
  • Follow a warm-up routine
  • Take vitamins daily
  • Avoid trendy supplements
  • Get plenty of rest

 

Doctors of chiropractic (DC) are trained and licensed to treat the entire neuromusculoskeletal system and can provide advice on sports training, nutrition and injury prevention to young athletes.  Bring your young athlete into the office today to receive care.
