A Sports Injury Did Not Sideline My Son
When my son was tackled hard at a football game not long ago, we didn’t think anything about it at first. It was not the first time he had been tackled hard, and we knew that it would not be the last time either. However, when he woke up the next morning, he complained of a lot of pain in his back. Knowing that the hit was particularly hard, I did not want to take any chances on it. I called a chiropractor in Santa Rosa to see if we would be able to get in for an appointment soon, and I was happy when I was told they could see us that day because of his complaints of pain.
Neither of us had ever been to a chiropractor before, so we really did not know what to expect. I was impressed with the procedures they did though. After getting registered, it did not take us long to be seen by the chiropractor. After a series of tests that included imaging as well as ortho and neuro testing, his spine was examined. We were able to breathe a lot easier when we were told that it was a painful injury but mild overall.
His treatment plan consisted of doing some adjustments twice a week along with exercises that he had to do at home. His favorite part was getting the deep tissue massages though, and I can hardly blame him for enjoying those so much. The nicest part about this is that the chiropractor did not put him on any type of bed rest of extreme limited activity. My son is too active to enjoy anything like that, so he was happy when he was able to still stay fairly active while he received treatments. Because we caught this so early, his recovery time was mere weeks!
