Ashburn 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 episode of low back pain, high training volume, and periods of load increase and exposure to such. (1) How might it be treated? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine are documented as using a variety of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A new survey of these physicians found that 88% of the 11% who responded that they had 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 recommended at least one such CAM approach in the past year. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most recommended. Family/general family practice physicians suggested chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. More female than male physicians were more prone to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic welcomes all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation tops the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and useful.
