How Chiropractic Care can help prevent skiing and snowboarding injuries
Winter is here, and skiing and snowboarding are one of the most popular trends for the winter months. It’s fun, exercise efficient, and always comes with a cup of hot chocolate. Hitting the slopes with your friends and family is always a great time until someone gets hurt. Our chiropractor in Port Jefferson, Dr. Sophia Argeropoulos wants to help keep you to stay safe this season.
Most Common Injuries:
- Spinal damage
- Knee damage
- Skier’s thumb
- Wrist fracture
- Head and neck injuries
Don’t wait until you get hurt to receive chiropractic care. We don’t only “crack your neck” or “crack your back,” we prevent your injuries before they happen. This is how we help:
- Adjustments. If you go snowboarding or skiing with a misaligned spine already, your chances of hurting it due to significant pressure caused by the sports increase significantly. A simple adjustment in the back or neck can increase your health!
- Being properly conditioned. Imagine having not run in a year and then running 5 miles your first day back. Could you do it? Maybe. Should you do it? Probably not. Your body has to be properly conditioned and trained to hit the slopes and if not, your body won’t be prepared and will break down easier. Our chiropractor in Port Jefferson can help your condition and prepare.
- Checkups. If you are an avid skier or snowboarder, it’s important to get frequent checkups to make sure you don’t have any injuries that could potentially get worse.
You can’t prevent a bump in the slope that you weren’t expecting, but you can make your body stronger and more prepared for that tough fall. Don’t let your winter ski and snowboard season be cut short when it doesn’t need to be. Prepare your body and keep it conditioned throughout the season with the help of our chiropractor in Port Jefferson. If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, contact us.
