Sports Injuries
(including golf)

Many musculoskeletal injuries come from playing sports. Whether you're a weekend athlete or a professional, a young teen or an older active person, having a sports injury is extraordinarily common.

Main Street Chiropractic and Wellness offers a balanced approach to the treatment and the healing of sports injuries. Chiropractic adjustments return spinal segments to their normal mobility and their normal function. Massage can loosen tight muscles and increase performance while also helping the healing process, Dr. Carnevale teaches new exercise and stretching techniques to get you back playing your chosen sport.

It's also important to note that many professional athletes use chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Arnold Schwartzeneger, former boxing champ Evander Holyfield, football star Emmit Smith and baseball player Johnny Damon have continuously raved about the benefits of chiropractic for their careers. Several professional and college football teams are utilizing a team chiropractor and 80% of the U.S. Olympic team athletes uses chiropractic care.

Golfers in particular quite often require chiropractic both to improve their games and to keep them on the course. Think of it, golfers contort their bodies into fairly unnatural, twisted postures when driving, maintaining a bent-over stance for putting, and repeating these motions 70-80 times over three or four hours. Next, include the fatigue that comes with several miles of walking, and there's recipe for both a good workout and lower-back trouble.

Dr. Carnevale is specially trained to treat the entire neuromusculoskeletal system and address sports injuries. She has also treated many golfers including tour professionals, and can give advice to help you decrease the stresses and strains placed on your body during the game. She can also address any other health concerns, such as shoulder, knee, arm and wrist pain that could affect your game.

If you are feeling the stress of the game, whether it be golf, rugby, or flicking the channel, don't let the pain effect you. Be better than the competition by being more flexible, faster, stronger, and pain-free.
