Eugene chiropractic manipulation care for common sports injuries are recommended by members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. 

CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION FOR SPORTS-RELATED BACK PAIN
 
Adult athletes commonly experience back pain with a lifetime prevalence of 63%. The annual prevalence was 51%. Risk factors included a prior occurrence of low back pain, high training volume, and times of load increase and exposure to these. (1) How might it be treated? Physician members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine are recorded as using a variety of different complementary alternative medicine treatments for sports related pain problems. A recent survey of these physicians reported that 88% of the 11% who responded that they had prescribed CAM had done so for at least one type of CAM in the last 12 months. The top 3 types of CAM recommended were chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture/electroacupuncture and yoga. (2) Another study stated that 53.1% of physicians advocated at least one such CAM approach in the past 12 months. Massage therapy, chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, herbs/non-vitamin supplements, yoga, and acupuncture were most recommended. Family/general family practice physicians suggested chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation most often. More female than male physicians were more prone to suggest massage, herbs/supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and mind-body therapies. (3) Our chiropractic clinic invites all referrals and appreciates that our chiropractic spinal manipulation is high on the list of medical physician referrals! And our Cox® Technic spinal manipulation is safe, gentle and effective.
