One of the most famous bodysurfing spots in the world is The Wedge in Newport Beach. Chiropractors who have established their practices in the area have helped many patients recover from minor and traumatic injuries incurred from water sports and other activities. If you are experiencing back and neck pain or other injuries as a result of bodysurfing, Premier Health Chiropractic can provide you with a comprehensive examination, diagnosis, and treatment for your ailments.
Bodysurfing at Newport Beach
When it comes to bodysurfing, not just any beach will do. This is because the sport heavily relies on catching or riding a specific type of wave like the Pipeline wave. Bodysurfing, as its name implies, does away with the normal surfboard, and entails the use of other equipment like swim fins and hand planes to surf on one’s stomach.
From how it looks and sounds, the sport is heady and exhilarating, and one that offers bodysurfers a spectacular time in the water. This is all true, based on the rising popularity of the sport. However, it should not be overlooked that the sport is fraught with a lot of risks.
Just like regular surfing, there are injuries one can sustain while bodysurfing if one is not careful or simply too inexperienced in the water. The most common and most dangerous injuries at the same time are those that concern the head, neck, and spine.

If you are a seasoned surfer, you probably already know about the risks of being in the water; waves can hurl you head first onto a shallow bottom, which can injure your neck, damage your spinal cord, or both. With cervical injuries becoming more and more prevalent among surfers who wipe out, it is important to get professional examination for any discomfort you may feel.
Here at Premier Health Chiropractic, our chiropractic services can serve as your primary treatment for certain conditions, such as lower back pains or muscle strains. Our chiropractic care services have complemented or supported other medical treatments. In the event of sustaining major injuries, we will readily refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider.
Among notable Newport Beach chiropractors is Dr. Sean Clark who has been practicing in the area for over a decade. He has helped many patients live healthier and pain-free lives using a variety of techniques, such as ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation.
