The Karate Kids
Meet Caleb Wilson and Hudson Palmer! These two boys study Karate---ahhhh ya! And according to their moms, they're pretty good at it too! I wonder when they get in trouble at home if their mom's yell "Wax on, Wax off?" HAHAHA!!! Caleb has a orange belt and Hudson has a blue belt! I can't even pretend that I know anything about Karate. I will be the first to admit that I know very little about this sport. BUT....I do know one thing.....it is a full on contact sport! And with that comes more injuries. Caleb and Hudson have been patients at CCC since they were little. They both have different issues, such as, Hudson has headaches and stomach issues while Caleb complains of occasional shoulder and neck pain. Getting chiropractic care for these boys now, while they are doing Karate, along with other sports, not only helps them perform at the peak of their athletic ability but also helps with pain and prevents injuries. Have you heard the term...."IT WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU?" Well I'm here to tell you that....Old injuries DO come back to haunt you at some point! If injuries are not addressed early on, arthritis can develop in the injured area, especially the spine. Arthritis does not develop over night so hence the term "It will come back to haunt you!" So it doesn't matter if you're the Karate Kid or not, arthritis isn't discriminatory, it can affect anyone! I have patients tell me all the time, "If I had known then what I know now I would've taken better care of my body." It's never too early to start taking care of your body! Whether you are 9 years old or 60 years old......take care of what you have......you can't replace your spine! Hope you enjoy these videos and pictures of my two FAVORITE 9 year olds!
