Paying Attention to Your Body
| We all want to have fun. We want to work hard and play hard, and we want to go all out.
It's important, though, when playing sports or exercising, to pay attention to the feedback our body is giving us. If we ignore these friendly messages, some not-so-pleasant things might happen. And, when things go wrong physically, there might be significant recovery time involved.
Paying attention can save a lot of downtime.
Important warning signs include feeling faint, experiencing shortness of breath, and even intense muscle pain and soreness. Any of these signals mean you're doing too much, working too hard, or working beyond your current physical capacity.
Back off a little. Slow down. Say that's enough for the day and be able to go out there again tomorrow.
Your chiropractor can help you design fun and challenging exercise routines. He or she is able to recommend sports, stretches, and activities that match-up with your interests and plans. The goal, as always, is to be healthy, active, and well.
Dr. Casey Ferguson DC has obtained the postgraduate designation of Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®) by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™ (ACBSP™). The CCSP® certification requires the doctor to attend a minimum of 100 hours of a 120 hour postgraduate program. This instruction is specific to physical fitness and the evaluation and treatment of injuries encountered in sports. Following the completion of these hours, the doctor must then take and successfully pass a comprehensive written examination.
This training will aid the doctor in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing his diagnostic skills and patient care. The CCSP® certification exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. Dr. Ferguson DC joins over 5500 others internationally who hold this designation.
