The physician may ask about the details concerning the pain, which will help determine the cause of the LBP. Some questions may include:
What is the character and intensity of the pain?
Dear Dr. Lin, What can I do to improve my vertical jump? — Volleyball player
Dr. Lin: Dear Volleyball Player,
The best thing to do to increase your vertical jump is to practice what ever sport your playing. It is called “sport specific exercise.” In volleyball that would be, a three- or five-step approach into a Sergeant jump for hitting or straight vertical jump in blocking, over and over again, concentrating on technique while fatigued.
I get tons of stress headaches. Is there anything a chiropractor can do for me?
Yes. From my own personal experiences with stress headaches, cervical adjustments help tremendously. My practice is geared more towards athletic injuries, so I only treat about 5 to 10 patients a week for headaches.
