Children and Sports

Children, especially those involved in sports activities, need special attention. A primary cause of injury in young athletes is lack of pre-conditioning for the sport in which they are involved. This is especially true of young women. Because of body alignment, center of gravity, and musculature differences from boys, girls’ joints are prone to injury, especially as they mature.

Come ask Dr. Barnes the  value of pre-conditioning, a regular program of strengthening exercises, and routine chiropractic care in preventing injury.

Children in these sports benefit from routine chiropractic care to prevent injury:

  • Basketball
  • Dance
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Soccer
  • Football
  • Swim
  • Baseball
  • Wrestling
  • Track and Field
  • Gymnastics
  • Volleyball

All of the same techniques effective in adults are effective in children. Dr. Barnes will modify the techniques as appropriate to take into consideration the special characteristics of young muscles, joints, and nerves.
