Athletes training for either iron man triathlons or sprint triathlons often receive Chiropractic care

Our doctors have specialized and advanced training in multiple areas of care. This past month has been very active caring for many sports injuries associated with athletes training for the Boston Marathon and upcoming triathlons. A couple of rewarding stories involved two women who had injured their ankle and knee respectively. Both women had a goal of running their first marathons and unfortunately injured themselves 2 weeks prior to the races. Both women were treated using localized manipulation, Active Release techniques which promoted healing of the injured soft tissues (muscles and localized cartilage and ligaments) and directed in home rehabilitation exercises. Both women were able to get to the starting line and finish line in order to accomplish their goals! We were so excited for both of them and pleased with their response to care.

Athletes training for either iron man triathlons or sprint triathlons often receive Chiropractic care, Active Release techniques and directions for home care from our doctors. Common injuries include low back injuries, muscle and tendon injuries to the hip, knee, ankle and feet. Due to the repetitive nature and intensity involved in our patients’ training there often is a need to support their training regimen with care. We are so gratified to help in the process as well as see their victories in competing and attaining their goals.

Dr. Ken Lowey recently attended another seminar for Activator Methods. This technique is quite gentle and effective and the utilization of the instrument is quite well received by our patients. The Activator instrument can be used for infants, elderly patients with osteoporosis and many severe traumatic injuries (for example: auto accidents and sports related injuries).

Dr. Ken visited Guatemala in January to help care for people who do not have access to any type of health care. HOPE worldwide regularly sponsors community service trips to Central America. Doctors, nurses, teachers and other volunteers travel in support of programs that deliver health care, educational support and provide other valuable physical needs. Last year, our whole staff visited Honduras on two trips to deliver Chiropractic care and other services.

Drs. Karen and Ken continue to volunteer and direct free Chiropractic care at three clinic sites in Boston with the Boston Benevolent Chiropractic Clinic. A group of 15 devoted doctors regularly volunteer time and the program has continued to expand over the 17 years of the BBCC’s existence.

Come and find Drs. Karen and Ken at which serves the Brookline, Needham and Newton area’s. They look forward to taking care of your chiropractic and sports injury needs.
