Sports Care in Smithtown and Selden
Football great Emmitt Smith once compared playing football every Sunday to getting in 20 car accidents from the impact and injury that would result from hits during the game. The amount of physical stress on athletes, whether in season or the off-season, is tremendous. It’s not just professional athletes, either; at younger and younger ages, kids are pushing their bodies beyond what they can handle.
Regardless of the level at which you’re performing in your chosen sport, chiropractic care can minimize the negative effects of training and help you achieve peak performance.
