Skateboarding can be a real thrill

Many skateboarders in the area enjoy the thrill and adventure involved with skateboarding. Flips, tricks and life in the fast lane make for an exciting commute no matter where you go around Virginia Beach. The downfall? The toll skateboarding takes on your body.

While skateboarding is excellent exercise and transportation, there’s a downside when it comes to the physical wear and tear over time.

The Toll Over Time

Pushing with the same leg creates one dominant side of the body. This unbalanced wear and tear and the repeat motions of skating are hard on skateboarders.

I know how many falls it takes to master tricks. Those falls are not only painful in the moment, but have long-term effects. When you’re trying to hit a handrail and you miss, that fall impacts your spine. The damage from that fall doesn’t just go away on it’s own.

How Can Chiropractic Help?

Chiropractic care helps to relieve the tension and injuries from skateboarding. By getting checked and receiving adjustments you help keep your body in a healthier state.

Chiropractic care helps you heal, function and perform better whether you’re skateboarding, running or participating in any sport.

Speak up Now!

Being a younger sport, a lot of skateboarders don’t complain when they get hurt. Often they just get up and walk it off. This is the worst thing you can do. Why?

Older individuals are now feeling the repercussions of the injuries suffered when they were younger. Unfortunately, waiting to get care later in life makes the healing process more drawn-out.

The earlier you start care the faster you’ll heal and recover. This means you can play your favorite sports longer and live an overall healthier life.
