Neck and Back Injuries From Amusement Parks

Neck injuries can be minor or very serious, especially when there is damage to the spinal cord. There is a long list of causes for neck injuries but roller coasters and amusement parks make the top of the list. Sudden jerking of the head back and forth causes whiplash, an injury of the soft tissues of the neck. It is usually a neck strain or neck sprain, which caused the ligaments that connect the spine to be stretched or torn.

Illitobial Band Syndrome

For any of you that are runners out there, you may have experienced one of the most common running injuries, illiotibial band syndrome (ITB). Runners with the syndrome can be sidelined for weeks because of this condition. The IT bandis a connective tissue that starts at your hip and runs just below your knee. People who are experiencing ITB syndrome will have pain on the outside of the knee and may experience “hip snapping” when walking.

I have personally suffered from ITB syndrome. Besides my outer knee aching, once at the gym I had a trainer come to me and say he could see my “hip snapping” while on the elliptical. It was then I knew I had to do something about this problem before it turned into a more serious injury.

Besides a foam roller, the best way to treat your ITB syndrome is with a visit to a chiropractor. Your chiropractor will be able to assess your situation and treat your injury.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a chiropractic appointment regarding your ITB syndrome, please contact us!

The Importance of Stretching for Workouts

Whether it be pre or post workout, or just when you wake up in the morning, the importance of stretching is very significant for all ages. Stretching when accompanied by a workout will help strengthen your muscles, prevent excessive sore muscles, and reduce risk of injury. The more conditioned your muscles and tendons are, the more they can handle in sports, exercise and day to day life.
