Sports and Chiropractic

See how Dr. Denise Carradine can help!

​When it comes to being an athlete, age is just a number. After all, there are kids as young as three, four, and five that are participating in sports by joining T-ball leagues or learning to play soccer.  There's also people in their 80's and 90's who are finding joy in sports such as golf, tennis, running, and more.

Fortunately, chiropractic has something to offer all age groups, whether you are amateur or professional to improve your sports performance and provide injury treatment and prevention. Dr. Denise Carradine is your Boardman, Ohio chiropractor who can help keep you active and injury-free with gentle chiropractic techniques, spinal decompression, various therapeutic modalities, rehabilitative exercise therapy, and/or acupuncture treatment.

Did you know that roughly 775,000 kids show up in emergency rooms annually with some type of sports-related injury? Certainly, some of these injuries require medical care, but quite often, the incident has also placed some type of stress on the spine or extremities - a stress that, if left untreated, could cause many health issues for the child later in life.

Your Boardman, Ohio chiropractor, Dr. Denise Carradine can often help with these types of spinal issues that occur in sports settings, enabling your child to return to the game and go about his or her life without the worry of pain, disability, or dysfunction years down the road. Older athletes can likewise benefit from chiropractic, as well. For example, many sports rely on having stellar balance, yet this ability tends to naturally decrease as we age. However, numerous studies like one published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine have found that chiropractic can help improve balance, making it easier and safer to play the sports you love.

Chiropractic can help improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury, no matter what your age or level.

If you're suffering from a nagging sports injury or you want to improve your game, Dr. Denise Carradine is here in Boardman, Ohio to help, and she's been successfully treating sports related injuries for over 25 years, offerring a variety of services to best suit our patients needs.
