picture of man playing tennisArctic Chiropractic, Sitka cherishes its athletic patients! Athletes are in harmony their bodies and their sports and want to keep going. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka loves it! The chiropractic treatment plan for our Sitka neck pain and back pain patients always consists of patient participation. And this newest study about tennis players and their serves captivated us.

This new study of tennis players and back pain points to a link between back pain, the kinematics of the serve and the range of motion it demands. Funny enough, all the tennis players in one study attained the end of their lumbar spine range of motion while serving. (1) Wow! That’s pushing the spine! Coaches may want to help their players alter their serves to protect their spines. Chiropractors like your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka may play a consulting role with such Sitka athletic players on how to best perform without risking their spines.

And this is what chiropractors do for all their patients. Your Sitka chiropractor wants to be sure you function at your ultimate capacity without the integrity of your spine and its normal kinematics. This goes for golfers, runners, marathoners and weekend warriors. The spine is a delicate system that must be respected, protected and nurtured so that it is able to perform up to par for your entire life.
