Running Is Great for Kids - Running Injuries Are Not

Training your child to take care of their body from a very young age can be great for their fitness level enhancement, their self-esteem, their cardiovascular health, their sports performance, their sleep patterns, their immune systems, and their general outlook on life. Even at a young age, children can benefit from the serotonin release that occurs when someone safely exercises through surface running. Running can also benefit the long-term goals that your child may have for sports performance and enhanced physical fitness. As your child enters adulthood, it’s great for them to have certain physical fitness habits in place. If people are physically able to run on surface, running is one of the most effective, most flexible forms of exercise you can add to your life. It helps to have the right shoes, loose fitting clothing, and clearance from your doctor. The utilization of a Sports Medicine Chiropractor can help your kids not only recover and rehabilitate from running injuries, but may actually be able to improve their running performance in the future.

Tendonitis Can Sideline Your Child’s Athletic Endeavors - Planet Chiropractic Can Help!

The most complained about symptoms of running injuries are quite often traced back to some form of Tendonitis. Tendonitis occurs when the tissue that connects your muscles and bones together becomes inflamed, usually from overexertion or overuse. You might recognize such infamous laymen’s titles as runner’s knee, tennis elbow, and swimmer’s shoulder. These are all common forms of tendonitis. However, other tendons in the body can also experience tendonitis-type symptoms. Your Achilles tendons, ankles, wrists, and even fingers can all become inflamed from untreated tendonitis and are all common symptoms of running injuries. Sometimes, a primary care physician is the one who actually diagnoses tendonitis in an athlete, runner, or physical laborer. But once there is a definitive diagnosis, we believe the best, most successful, long-lasting treatments are natural, non-invasive, and holistic. Chiropractic care is an outstanding choice for treatment. If you don’t want your child’s entire life to be governed by the constant need for shots, pills, or even surgeries, you should consider chiropractic care. We hope you will consider outstanding Chiropractic Care for your kids from running injuries specialists like your friends at Planet Chiropractic.
