At Holmes Chiropractic many of our patients seek treatment for back and neck injuries, but we also see patients who experience leg injuries as well. Chiropractic care treatments have been shown to be beneficial to the body in numerous ways, a drug-free pain management solution and a means of correcting your body when it's all out of whack.

Many of our patients experience back injuries while engaged in athletics, but knee injuries are also extremely prevalent in sports.

Below are some of the sports where athletes commonly experience knee injuries.


If a player gets injured on the court, chances are it's going to be the player's knee, leg, or ankle. We've seen players tear their ACL and MCL, not to mention snap their Achilles tendon. We've even seen players break their shins from the wear and tear of running, jumping, and landing.

Karate/MMA/Muay Thai

Combat sports are also super hard on the knees. Many kickboxing, karate, and MMA champions have experienced knee surgeries as a result of the repetitive motion of kicking, not to mention leglocks and grappling.


Football's open field running and tackling leave your legs and knees especially susceptible to injury.

If you have any questions about how chiropractic treatments can benefit the body and mind, contact Holmes Chiropractic today. We have a long track record of treating both athletes and regular working folks.

Memorial Day weekend is a perfect opportunity for you to stay active and keep your spine in mind. When it comes down to us, in many ways, we're only as healthy as our spine. Spine misalignment can seriously put our bodies out of whack and mess with the connection and messaging going on between the body and brain.

Below are a few ways to keep your spine healthy this holiday weekend.

Drink Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated will ensure your body and brain run at optimum capacity. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily is great for your spine and your joints as well. Keeps the body lubricated!

Activate Your Core

Try paddleboarding or some calisthenics on the beach to work your body's core muscle group. Building your back is important to staying healthy and well.

Eat Healthy Food

Stay away from hotdogs and burgers if you can. Instead eat clean, whole foods and plenty of fruits and veggies.
