Whether you are a tri-athlete, golf, play tennis, cycle, swim or run or even bowl, the best treatment for sports injuries is preventative care.

    Thanks for this post! The way I see it, the spine is a line that connects all the parts of our body, allowing us to use each and every part of body freely. If not taken properly, the line that connects everything together will deteriorate, affecting the parts connecting to it, thus resulting to all sorts of diseases and complications.
