When the smell of fall is in the air, there is not a football field around that doesn’t have players smashing into each other after school. It’s great! But, those collisions can cause serious injuries to the neck and back.

The football helmet alone weighs enough to cause an injury to an unconditioned neck. It can weigh as much as 8 pounds. That doubles the amount of weight the neck normally carries. (Thank you cute kid from “Jerry McGuire?)

If you or someone you know is in a sport, make sure they are getting checked by a chiropractor. Each sport has its own way of causing injuries to the neck and back. In football, the collisions may be the cause of an injury. The culprit could also be the helmet designed to protect the athlete.  It is important to have each athlete performing at their best. An adjustment can help you be at your best.
