    It’s interesting to learn that with a bad fall a spinal misalignment can be produced which can cause extensive pain in the person’s back, arms, legs, back, and neck. That’s great to learn since I think that I might have one from my fall earlier this week due to my kids. I better have a check with a chiropractor to see if they can perform a spinal adjustment to me and fix my issue. Thanks for the informative read about spinal adjustments for hockey players!

      Thank you for your comment, Jeremy. Hard falls can certainly cause pain from misalignments. That’s a great idea to get checked out by a chiropractor. Hope you get well soon.
