We are a country of sports enthusiasts. From rapid fans to weekend warriors; we swing, throw, catch, dribble, shoot, swim, hike, bike and spike our way to happiness. And injury. Though, as healthcare professionals, the team at Innovative Health and Wellness always tries to encourage our patients to engage in a healthy amount of physical activities, sports can take a toll on your body over time. Though an average athlete can expect some aches and pains after strenuous exercise or activities, avoiding injury is key to your ability to enjoy those activities for as long as possible. To help reduce the risk of injury remember the following:

  • Always wear the proper gear. Protect yourself by donning the correct eyewear, shoes, helmets, pads and mouthpieces whenever appropriate.
  • Condition and train. Don’t get into a new sport completely unprepared. Engage in the right exercises to ready your muscles and bones for new movements.
  • Take breaks. This advice should be heeded during the activity itself and throughout the year too. Your body will be less prone to injury if you take time during your rugby game or golf tournament than if you played the entire time. Recovery time is also recommended at least one day a week or one month during the year for intense athletes.
  • Stay hydrated. A well-hydrated body responds better during play and recovers better afterwards. Avoid becoming dehydrated by drinking plenty of fluids before, during and after any activity; more so if active under the hot sun.

At Innovative Health & Wellness in Woodstock, our chiropractors specialize in the treatment and recovery of sports injuries. As part of our holistic healing program, our sports chiropractic services help athletes of all ages and levels experience optimal functionality and performance.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
