OUCH!  THAT HURTS!!  Where’s the Boat Doctor?

No matter how athletic or healthy, life of crew onboard an active charter yacht can often include painful strained muscles, sprained ligaments, taut tendons, headaches, elbow, knee, wrist and ankle pain etc.  Often, a quick remedy is just a matter of an adjustment and healing directions. 

Dr. Barak Meraz, DC with Carpe Diem Chiropractic is formally trained in remedial Chiropractic medicine.  Conveniently located on 1321 S Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Dr. B, as he is fondly referred, sees his share of yacht crew here in the ‘Yachting Capital of the World’.    As with most athletes, physically fit strong yacht crew often overextend  or overexert their physical frame by lifting heavy items, pulling on lines, tugging yacht fenders, carrying heavy luggage or provisions, etc. 

In the event of a boat “ouch”, prepare for your visit … gather information about your symptoms or injury specifics and write them down, wear comfortable loose-fitting attire, ask questions, etc.

Often a simple adjustment keeps you in the game.
