SoCal Kitesurfing Chiropractor:
Kitesurfing, or Kiteboarding, is a sport that combines elements of traditional surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding and parasailing into an intense, exciting and often extreme sport! Kiteboarders can travel at speeds in excess of 50 knots (57mph) and catch big air jumps often reaching insane heights!
Dr. Tom Hewitt, DC, CSCS - one of the chiropractors at Back to Basics in Newport Beach, has built on his prior experience as an avid windsurfing racer and sailor back in Canada and more recently has been enjoying kitesurfing in Southern California.
Kitesurfing is a demanding sport and requires regular chiropractic spinal maintenance and strengthening to avoid injury - however, it is also a sport that is enjoyed by men and women of all ages. If you are thinking about starting kitesurfing it is essential to get the expert tuition of a certified IKO instructor, such as Bart Miller at SoCal Kites. You may also consider a trip to the chiropractors at Back to Basics Health and Wellness in Newport Beach to have us check your spinal health and make sure you are in great shape so you can safely start enjoying this amazing sport!
In addition to chiropractic spinal adjustment and deep tissue sports massage, our chiropractic health center features physiotherapy programs for lumbar spinal strengthening with Med-X rehabilitation machines. The lumbar spine is one of the most easy to damage parts of the body when kitesurfing . . . if it is not stable! Back to Basics chiropractors also use the most technologically advanced Class IV K-Laser therapy to help rapidly heal both acute and chronic soft tissue and joint injuries.
See You on the Water!
Kitesurfing will be featured as a sport at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil:
