I became a big believer in making sure my body was lined up properly and functioning the way it was supposed to on Sunday. I went to see my chiropractor when I’d get bent out of shape on Sundays. It definitely helped me perform at a higher level. ~ Emmitt Smith

Football - The Crown Prince of High-Impact Sports

Perhaps no sport has as much play-for-play impact as football. When we think of football injuries, we probably think of bone-jarring tackles and midfield collisions at high speeds. The cracking of the helmets, the popping of the shoulder pads, the thud of a player being slammed to the ground, they all serve as reminders that football, at any level, is a contact sport. When a ball carrier gets speared by a defensive player, the grunting “ugh” they let out is proof of Football’s every-down level of violence. It’s also a reminder that Football Injuries can occur on every offensive, defensive, and special teams play. Whether your football injuries occur in game action, during practice, or in the middle of training camp, Chiropractic Care can play a vital role in restoring your holistic, total body health and wellness.

“It’s Like Being in 30-40 Car Accidents”

Organized, tackle football is not for the faint of heart. Emmitt Smith once said that “Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents.” And quite honestly, Emmitt has a case. If you’ve ever been nailed in the open field by a linebacker with a full head of steam, you know exactly what the Hall of Fame Running Back was talking about. When you’ve been involved in a car accident, you have the direct impact of the hit, and hopefully you have a seatbelt on. Your muscles tense up. Your body goes from full speed to an abrupt stop. Your internal organs slam against your bones and skin. You can have untold immediate pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. The impact can take your breath away. If you’re fortunate enough to walk away, you could possibly be dealing with complications from your wreck for years.

Football Injuries are Inevitable

In football, you don’t have a seatbelt. You aren’t secured in a seat. You have a helmet. You have pads. Your body goes from full speed to an abrupt stop. Your internal organs slam against your bones and skin. You go from an upright position to who knows where in the field. Football breeds violence. Only the strongest, fastest, toughest, smartest, and luckiest can arise from these grueling gladiator battles victoriously. And even the very best players still fight all types of football injuries. Quite often, these can be impact related. But more often than not, the nagging, consistent, painful reminders of your historic football career might not be the result of one particular play, or even an impact play.

Shoulder Pads and Helmets Don’t Protect Everything

Shoulder pads absorb hits from other players, but nothing absorbs the impact on your knees, hips, and ankles from sprinting, changing directions, and all the other athletic plays you made. Nothing absorbs muscle strains from overexerting your shoulders, elbows, or wrists. Nothing absorbs your mid-back pain from pushing a lineman downfield. Nothing absorbs your lower back pain from lifting a 200-pound defender out of your way. If you or a loved one are recovering from recent football injuries or the pain from your old football injuries, you don’t have to suffer.
