Re: Sarco illac Torsion & 6 lumbar vertebrae

No need to have a referral to see a chiropractic physician. I think it is a good idea. Although a DO or osteopath recieves some education in manipulation and biomechanics, it is limited and does not compare to the education a chiropractor recieves in manipulation or analysis of postural disorders. I would imagine you have a short lower extremity (unleveled pelvis). A chiropractor will look for this. We will look at your feet, your gait, your hips, SI joints and pelvis. It is all connected and only takes one part of the chain to kink to cause malfunction in other places of the body. A pronated foot can cause knee pain, hip pain, pain in the pelvis or lower back, a short leg can also. It is a simple fix if you know what to look for.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
