Corrective Chiropractic: Football Injuries


With football season here, most football fans around the United States are looking forward to watching their favorite team, watching bizarre commercials, or enjoying a guilt-free day of tailgate food and drinks.

Football players on the other hand (whether professional, college, or high school) are more concerned about performing at their peak, and avoiding injury on the field.

A recent study has shown a dramatic and eye-opening correlation between an athlete’s neck curve (cervical curve), and the extent of injury sustained during head-first or direct impact blows to the front-top of the skull.

In other words, athletes with straight or reversed cervical curves are prone to complex injuries to the cervical tissue and nerve roots, while those who maintain a normal cervical curve have a lot less chance of long-term and complex injuries.

Screening for neck curve abnormalities should be part of every athlete’s routine before, during, and after football season. Ensuring a correct cervical curve not only protects athletes from complex injuries, but ensures optimal health and wellness for the rest of us.

Green Chiropractic Corrections is the largest chiropractic corrective care facility in Omaha, specializing in helping athletes (and patients) regain proper spinal alignment and curvature – ensuring optimal health on or off the field.
