Dr. Siegel takes great pride in working with professional dancers for correction of spinal, shoulder, arm, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and feet problems. He has spent years getting performers quickly and safely back on stage after injuries have been sustained.
Dancers and runners consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. Everyday these athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes take, they experience musculoskeletal injuries.
Chiropractors are to athletes, just as Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. Chiropractors can often treat an injured athlete more effectively than a medical doctor, who is not well versed in sports injuries. In addition to treating athletic injuries, the chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.
Dancers and other athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor often find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game with ice packs and taking pain medication. Medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treats each injury individually.
It has been said that chiropractic care most closely relates to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state.
Professional athletes see such a great value in chiropractic treatment that they regularly have chiropractic well visits to prevent injuries. Chiropractic care will enable you to reach peak performance, without breaking yourself.
