picture of man playing tennisSpinal Care Clinic loves its athletic patients! Athletes are tuned into their bodies and their sports and want to keep going. Spinal Care Clinic loves it! The chiropractic treatment plan for our Burlington and Hamilton neck pain and back pain patients always includes patient participation. And this latest research about tennis players and their serves fascinated us.

This new study of tennis players and back pain points to a link between back pain, the kinematics of the serve and the range of motion it demands. Curiously, all the tennis players in one study reached the end of their lumbar spine range of motion while serving. (1) Wow! That’s pushing the spine! Coaches may want to help their players modify their serves to protect their spines.
