Spike Footballs this Fall Without Straining the Spine
Date:8/11/2009

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- As college football rivalries heat up and athletes and fans everywhere don their team colors and break out the tailgating grills, the spinal experts at Tampa's Laser Spine Institute want to make sure athletes and spectators alike take care of their spines. Twenty percent of sports-related injuries affect the neck and back, which is why those who enjoy an active lifestyle, from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, should take extra care. With facilities in Tampa and Scottsdale, LSI offers ways to prevent injury to the spine.

A few easy tips can help athletes keep spines in fighting shape:

  1. Complete a stretching and warm-up routine before playing.
  2. Following a sports activity, ice the spine to reduce any inflammation or swelling and prevent muscle spasms and nerve irritation.
  3. Do not play through pain or spasms. Recognize that painful symptoms typically indicate a more serious injury.
  4. Avoid over-playing, such as several days in a row as spinal muscles and joints need a recovery period after strenuous exercise.
  5. Build some rest days into training and sports activities to allow your body to heal and muscles to repair.

It is important for athletes at any level to protect their body and practice prevention. Proper physical conditioning, such as aerobic exercise and muscle strengthening should prevent most common injuries to the spine and body.

For athletes looking for an alternative way to treat their spinal pain, the Laser Spine Institute offers a minimally invasive surgical approach with an incision measuring less than one inch and a five-day process from evaluation to recovery, drastically reducing the time it takes for athletes to get back in the game. Patients receive all of their spinal health care needs in one location. From pre-operative imaging and diagnostic testing, to endoscopic laser-assisted surgery and post-operative physical therapy, patients receive the highest quality care combined with the most advanced treatments.

Potential candidates with back and neck pain can visit www.laserspineinstitute.com or call toll free 1-866-853-6191 for more information on outpatient, minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery and upcoming seminars in cities across the United States and Canada.
