Dr. Jennifer Lidstrom of Lakeside Sports Chiropractic Center and Motorsports Rehab grew up in a NASCAR-loving family. This love eventually led her to choose a career in chiropractic care and a home in the heart of racing –North Carolina. Located in Cornelius, with Lake Norman nearby, Lakeside Sports and Dr. Lidstrom specialize in helping athletes and everyday people who have been injured in motor sports – and want to return to the sports they love.
During her career, Dr. Lidstrom has worked with NASCAR teams and U.S. Olympic Team athletes to ensure they are in top condition for competition. At Lakeside Sports, our highly trained staff understands the mechanism of injuries that can occur in motor sports, from competitive auto racing to ATVs and more.
At Lakeside, we also can help patients who may not drive competitively, but still suffer from lower back pain and other problems that can arise after you’ve been behind the wheel. Long-haul truck drivers, taxi operators and police officers are just some occupations that can also take a toll on your back, and other areas of the body that can suffer pain caused by hours behind the wheel. Pit crew team members also can benefit from our care. Many team members suffer from foot pain and other job-related injuries, problems that Lakeside Sports can help rehabilitate as quickly as possible so they can return to work.
Here at Lakeside Sports, we can quickly assess injuries and begin appropriate care and rehabilitation to alleviate pain and help athletes return to competition. Without fast medical attention and rehab, many motor sports injuries can lead to major impairment issues and dysfunction. At Lakeside, our rehab program is not limited to those who compete or work in motor sports. We treat each patient on an individual basis and work with them to design the best workout regimen to ease pain and promote a return to a healthy life. At Lakeside, we can treat patients young and old who need help fighting back from injury.
The Mayo Clinic reports that all-terrain vehicle use, along with off-road motorcycling, have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, with more and more young people taking up the sports. During the 1970s, United States residents owned an estimated 400,000 ATVs. That number jumped by leaps and bounds by 2009 to 10.5 million. One survey reported 30 percent of residents in one rural state were ATV owners. This burst in ATV popularity meant more children and teens were riding the vehicles, which has increased the number of injuries to that age group. Studies show children younger than age 16 are most likely to be injured during motocross or ATV use.
At Lakeside, we help young people and adults recover from motor sports injuries. Some injuries common to using off-road vehicles are injuries to the extremities, head and spinal cord. No matter what part of your body needs rehabilitation from injury, the team at Lakeside is ready to help you design a rehab regimen to get you back to top condition as soon as possible. To improve safety for those who love these increasingly popular sports, experts recommend programs to bolster safety training and increase the use of helmets and other protective gear. But if you are injured – and want to recover properly- Lakeside Sports and Dr. Lidstrom are ready to help you do just that.
Our rehab facility includes a state-of-the-art sports injury and rehab room that will help you to a speedy recovery.
