How Poor Posture Causes Back Pain

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Apr 20, 2020 2:56:19 PM

Ignoring your posture can cause back pain and affect your health overall. It's easy to overlook the pain that comes from poor posture for a while, but it's your body's way of getting your attention.

 

Having poor posture over the long term is when you sustain real damage.

Common Sports Injuries and How To Prevent Them

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Apr 13, 2020 5:12:03 PM

Playing a recreational sport as an adult can be a great way to stay fit and social. 

 

An afternoon in the park playing a pick-up game of basketball or flag football can help you relieve stress, have fun, and stay in shape.

 

But organized sports can come with a risk. Every year, 8.6 million Americans sustain a sports or recreation-related injury.

 

Many of these injuries heal on their own over time, but some can be more serious. 

 

A torn ACL, for example, often requires surgery that can cost upwards of $20,000 to $50,000 without insurance.
