Sports drinks, are they good for you and do they work?

By Dr. Terry Weyman

In a great article by Dr. Robert Silverman, written in the journal “Dynamic Chiropractic”, Dr. Silverman takes an indepth look at Key components of a performance/recovery drink and to see if you are getting what you desire. In this article I am going to summarize Dr. Silvermans findings, breaking it down so that implementation is easy.

Why use a recovery/performance drink?

When you sweat and work out your body gets depleted of vital nutrients as well the cells in your body begin to dehydrate. Drinking just water provides the necessary hydration but unfortunately, it lacks the key nutrients to aid in performance and recovery. If water is not sufficient, is there a sports drink on the market that will work? Dr. Silverman did an extensive review of the various literature looking at the ingredients and efficiency. Even though the “best” sports drink say they have carbohydrates, electrolytes and numerous other “performance nutrition” do they do the job and are they good for you. A good Sports Drink should not only fuel activity, but also aid in recovery.  

What the drinks should have


“Carbs are a key component for athletic performance, recovery and health. Dr. Silverman recommends 30-60 grams of carbs per hour for an athletic endeavor. The carbohydrate  amount will prevent immunosupression, which naturally occurs during intensive exercise. In addition, this amount enables athletes to maintain blood glucose levels, and to
maintain blood glucose levels, and optimize glucose uptake and oxidation in performance. 


Sports drinks should contain electrolytes such as sodium, potassium magnesium and chloride. Magnesium, a key electrolyte, plays a pivotal role in 300 enzymatic reactions. Bisglycinate has been shown to be the best form of magnesium because it is chelated (bonded) to an amino acid (glycine). Magnesium in the form of bisglycinate ensures increased intestinal absorption and prevents diarrhea. Finding a company that formulate Magnesium in this form is hard, hence why some sport drinks cause intestinal issues.

Other ingredients that are important:

Malic Acid- a critical addition to a sports drink formulation since it reduces muscle tenderness and assists in soft tissue recovery. 

Taurine- is an amino acid that helps regulate the level of water and mineral salts in the blood by keeping potassium and magnesium inside the cell. At the same time, taurine prevents excessive sodium from entering the cell. L-Taurine’s properties have been validated in numerous studies.

L-Carnosine- Also,an amino acid, helps fight muscle fatigue in fast twitch fibers and aids in athletic performance. 

In addition, a complete range of complex B vitamins for energy production should be included in the drink as well. 

Maximum Carb Efficiency

“Research has shown that a combination of diverse sugars maximizes carbohydrate absorption during exercise. Since glucose and fructose are absorbed at different rates, both glucose and fructose polymers should be present to optimize multiple pathways of absorption during exercise. Most commercial brands use only glucose polymers.

Literature reveals that a glucose-fructose combination, versus water or glucose alone, is the best choice for carbohydrates in a sports drink. The glucose-fructose combination results in improved power performance, running time, time to fatigue during cycling, and a perceived higher level of exertion during both strength and endurance exercises.”

Does your sports drink make the cut?

“Of the more popular brands, Powerade contains high-fructose corn syrup as a source of carbohydrates; it lacks electrolytes and any recovery ingredients. Gatorade has no vitamins and contains only sodium and potassium. Both these brands rely solely on glucose as a carbohydrate source and lack fructose. Another popular brand, Vitamin Water, has no sodium or chloride and contains only trace amounts of magnesium.

Coconut water has very high levels of potassium without any sodium content, and low levels of magnesium. Analysis of coconut water reveals that it primarily contains sucrose as a main carbohydrate source, rather than glucose and fructose in an appropriate ratio of 3:1.” 

Its Dr. Silvermans professional opinion, that non of these aforementioned commercial brands contain a proper formulation to aid in athletic performance. Instead, they hinder athletic performance.

What to look for in your “Sports Drink”.

“When looking for a good sports drink do your due diligence. You research what kind of food to eat, now its time to research the best sports drink. Look to companies that provide the powder that you mix your own, found in Cycling and performance shops. Talk to your Sports Medicine practitioners for their opinion on what works best for you. Look for the following ingredients when you are reading your labels.

The drink should contain the 4 electrolytes as ingredients and have the appropriate 3:1 ratio of glucose to fructose. In addition, it should include magnesium in the bisglycinate form, as well as malic acid, taurine, L-Carnosine and complex B vitamins to aid in athletic recovery, states Dr. Silverman”

Read your labels, do your work. You are only given one body and its highly tuned and complex. Treat it with respect and take care of it and your body will perform as it was designed to do.

I just got hurt, Do I see my Chiropractor or my Medical Doctor? Yes!

Dr. Terry Weyman

 This is a question many people ask all the time. Even some Doctors (both DC and MD) don’t know the answer and some even will argue the point. Why? Both DCs and MDs are on sidelines of Professional Sports teams, share responsibilities at the Olympics and are working in the training rooms of Major Universities working side by side. What do they know that the average person doesn’t? The answer, each Doctor has a DIFFERENT job or responsibility, and when they work together, the Athlete heals faster.

I like analogies, so lets use one of my favorites, The Race Car. Sports Chiropractors are biomechanics experts and look to restore proper joint movement. Since muscles attach to bones, when there is an injury the joint will ALWAYS be affected. Our job is to look at this Kinetic Chain and restore the proper joint movement by “Adjusting” the joints  and opening up the fixations, much like the “Pit mechanic” will work with the car to get the power to the wheels and fine tune the alignment of both the chassis and the motor to make this happen.

Orthopedists are experts in fixing broken parts. When the injury involves a joint that can not be “adjusted” back into place, you need to call in the “repair shop” to fix the broken part. Both Doctors are needed since the “broken” part will affect the entire kinetic chain, much like a damaged wheel can affect the alignment of the entire car. The Sports Chiropractor keeps the alignment working while the MD makes the repairs. This will minimize secondary injuries and allow for a faster recovery.

Internists are experts in the internal workings of the body. Just as if you put bad “gas” in your engine or you got a bug in the motor, your MD/Internist is the expert in finding out the chemical changes and restoring the internal health of your system.

Physical Therapists are experts at balancing the muscles and retraining the body to return to play. Once the joint has been repaired (MD) and the joints have been balanced and the kinetic chain aligned (DC) the proprioception needs to be restored (PT). When the Sports Medicine team works in harmony the Athlete recovers faster and performs better.

Just like there are many members of the ‘Pit Crew” in an Auto race, there should be many members of your “healing” team to provide the care you need to get back to the field. There is a reason you see a “team” of Doctors at major events, it works!

Summer is here- Learn how to recover and take care of your body so you will be ready!

By Dr. Terry Weyman

So last week a patient of mine came in with a feeling of fatigue, heavy legs from training and soreness in his legs and lower back. He has been working hard to get ready for his summer racing season and was feeling a little discouraged. At first he thought his equipment was getting tired but after spending over a thousand dollars on up grades his scores did not change. I finally had to tell him, "did you look at your body and what you need to do different?" 

So, many Athletes take their body for granted and if they are losing, blame their equipment when they should look within. Have they been eating right, are they seeing their Chiropractor to get the joints loosened up to allow the soft tissue to be more reactive and functioning, are they recovering correctly after their work outs, etc. These are just some of the questions you need to ask when you hit a flat spot in your performance. I have seen Golfers spend thousands of dollars on the newest and greatest club,  to gain 10 extra yards! Yet with one trip to the Chiropractor and some great recovery techniques and they get the same yardage gain for a lot less money. I have seen cyclist have to have the newest carbon bike and will spend a lot of money for a few ounces of wt, yet they will eat like crap and won't recover and they wonder why their engine does not work when they put the "hammer down". 

Lack of Time maybe an issue, but so is putting your body first. Go see your sports Chiropractor (ie your body mechanic) and get tuned up. Eat right, you would never put cheap gas in your race car, and yet your body is worth a heck of a lot more. The best tip of all. BUY A MARC PRO. Its the best recovery tool on the market, use it after EVERY work out, Between EVERY race and the night before any major competition to flush the muscles with fresh fluids. Its the best money you will ever spend! promo code:GOTCSI

Its time to put your money into what will really matter at the end, YOU!

Turf Toe

By Dr. Ciro Errico

In sports like soccer, football, lacrosse, track, and even gymnastics turf toe can be an injury that can occur. Though commonly seen on turf fields it can be seen in a variety of sports due to the mechanism of injury. All these sports include the need to jump, run, ‘cut’ or quickly turn; often times it occurs while the player is on his or her toes. This action causes injuries like turf toe.  

So, what is turf toe?

Turf toe is an injury in which the big toe is hyperextend causing a sprain of the ligaments surrounding the big toe. It is often times caused by jamming the big toe, or repeatedly pushing off the big toe during running or jumping.

What are a few signs and symptoms?

When a player has a possible turf toe injury there will be swelling, pain, and limited range of motion in the big toe. The player will have a hard time placing his or her foot on the floor due to the pain of trying to push off while walking.

What can a player do to help treat turf toe?

To treat turf toe the first thing to do is RICE method which includes: rest, ice, compression of the area, and elevating the foot to help reduce the swelling. Receiving professional care like chiropractic care is beneficial; there are many things that a chiropractor can do. Laser treatments help the cells of the damaged ligaments and tendons to reproduce ATP in the body, and allows for a faster recovery. Myofacial release is beneficial: the injured muscles need treatment to reduce inflammation, and also allows the surrounding muscle to not over compensate and cause more problems. MarcPro helps the muscles to flush out the inflammation, and the allows to bring more blood flow to the damaged area; this process of bringing blood to the area of damage allowing oxygen to get to the muscles and help heal the damaged muscle fibers ( promo code: GOTCSI). Taping the area of damage allows a reduction of inflammation, and provides support to the tendons and ligaments. Adjustments of the foot, ankle, and the spine allow the body to stay aligned, and continue to provide optimal innate care in body.

How to prevent turf toe?

One of the best ways to prevent turf toe is to wear shoes that do not allow a significant amount of bend in the shoe to prevent excess amount of hyperextension and pushing off with the big toe. Working on gait patterns, and finding optimal foot positioning can help prevent more turf toe injuries. Also, exercises, such as the one on youtube channel for big toe work well in strengthening the joint.

Are Supplements a waste of Money?

By Dr. Ciro Errico

In a recent study medical doctors have announced supplements are a waste of money. How can that be true? For years doctors of different fields have given patients vitamins and mineral supplements, because it is ‘healthy’ or ‘good nutritional advice’. In my opinion the best nutritional advice any doctor can give is explaining to a patient the importance of eating fresh organic, grass-fed, non-processed, non-GMO foods. The importance of allowing the body to eat clean, and not to allow genetically modified, hormonal, or pesticide infected foods- whether vegetables, meats, or fruits.

But, it seems in the new recent study that doctors are trying to possible promote better eating, and lifestyle- hence, doing away with vitamins forces a person to take control of food, and not rely on supplements. So, here is another view. How many can honestly and truly shop at a Farmers Market daily, prepare and cook meals everyday, exercise- both mentally and physically, do chores, errands, spend time with family, enjoy alone time, and enjoy life?

Supplements are good for people when they know they are lacking a specific vitamin or mineral. A simple example would be Vitamin D and winter. During the winter less people are willing to go outside to sunbathe for twenty minutes to help increase his or her own Vitamin D production- sun light increases the body’s production of Vitamin D naturally- along side taking Vitamin K which allows the uptake of Vitamin D to increase as well. So, what does Vitamin D actually do in the body? Vitamin D helps strengthen bones, allows nerve impulses to travel optimally, and helps the immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. Now, aside from the sunbathing Vitamin D can also be found in beef liver and fatty fishes like salmon- make sure the beef liver is from a grass-fed cow and the salmon is wild caught from USA. Too much to ask for? Not sure of the source of food? Not sure about sunbathing in the winter? These may be a time when a vitamin D (along with Vitamin K) supplement may be helpful and useful until spring or summer. 

A simple and honest way of explaining why supplements should still be taken Is because not many people take the time to research his or her food, have time to prepare and cook meals every day and night, not many people can afford to spend the extra money at the local Farmers Market, and not many people enjoy cooking. Another simple and honest reason is because a person may eat two servings of fruit and four servings of vegetables a day, but is that fruit or vegetable organic or has it been genetically modified in some way? Result: ingesting a fruit or vegetable that has no quality because it may have been modified to produce quantity on an orchard or farm. Ultimately these modified fruits and vegetables contain no proper quality nutrition that can give the body vitamins and minerals it may need.     

Supplements are just that. They SUPPLEMENT the diet when nutrients are missing. How can that be a waste of money?!

Going through a time of STRESS?

By. Terry Weyman

Stress is part of life, its just the way it is. HOWEVER, when the flood waters get a little high, sometimes we need a little help. Stress comes in many forms. And its effects are so strong that even the stress of others can have an impact on your well-being. The American Psychological Association reports that "only 37 percent of Americans feel they are actually doing an excellent of very good job of managing their stress". Not only can Stress be emotional, it can also be caused by over training!

What are you doing to help your stress? We all have read about stress relieving techniques, from mediation, positive self talk, breathing and changing your environment. However, what are you doing during the stressful times to just get by until the light at the end of the tunnel appears? Here are some quick tips to help.

Supplements to take: 

Supplements are just that. They SUPPLEMENT the diet when more is needed. If you are building a house and its time to put on the roof, do you want a few tiles to show up at a time or do you want truck loads to show up when they are needed? The average American diet is CRAP. We are not getting the nutrients necessary for daily survival most of the time, let alone in times of stress. So, when the body needs more, give it more. The basics are:

  1. Vitamin C
  2. B-Complex
  3. Omega #
  4. Valerian (if sleep is a problem)
  5. Passion Flower
Get your supplements from your Doctor of Chiropractic. They carry only top quality, Professional strength Supplements that come from Companies that watch for cross contamination and purity/potency. Most top companies even have a "Stress formula" that has most of the above ingredients in one pill.


Talk to your Doctor of Chiropractic, Your MD, your PT or your personal trainer for basic stretches that can be done at your desk and place of work. Change blood flow and get things moving better.

Therapeutic devises:

There are battery powered devices on the market such as the Marc Pro ( that are FDA proven for tissue recovery! Recover tissue mean increased blood flow. Increased blood flow, means good nutrients in, waist products out. (use the promo code: GOTCSI to save some money-even more stress reduction)

Chiropractic Care

Muscle attaches to bone. When the muscles get tight, they pull on the joints they are attached to, plain and simple. By getting adjusted, the fixated joints are moved and loosened. By decreasing the joint fixation in a proper, non rotational manner, the tension on the muscle is relieved, increasing blood flow and decreasing internal stress.

All these simple tips can be done on the busiest of schedules. Take time to take care of yourself. God only gave you one body and our time on this Earth is limited so live life to the Max.

Treatment of Stenosis- A quick analysis

By Dr. Terry Weyman

I got this quick tip from the American Chiropractic Association and I felt it was worth sharing.


"Spinal stenosis is created by the narrowing of the Spinal Canal. There are three BASIC treatment approaches to spinal stenosis: The conservative medical approach, which often involves bed rest, analgesics, local moist heat and muscle relaxants; The conservative Chiropractic approach, which includes non rotational manipulation to decrease tension of posterior facet joints, exercise, decompression and self-care techniques; and surgery. The source of the stenosis often dictates the treatment.

Ultimately, stenosis is a chronic condition that cannot be "cured", but it often can be improved and maintained over the long term."

By working with the fixation of the posterior joints, decompressing the spine and providing proper exercises to strengthen the weakened core WITHOUT adding further stress, can and has been shown to decrease the symptoms dramatically. Thus, increasing the quality of your life.

Concussions- what you need to know!

By: Dr. Ciro Errico and Dr. Terry Weyman

Concussions are a big part of every sport. Being on the sidelines of different sports, I see many injuries including concussions. But, what exactly is a concussion?

Before I begin to explain concussions, let me cross out the myth about a concussion being only a direct trauma or hit to the head, and/or a complete loss of consciousness. Another big myth is that a concussion is a bruise to the brain. Both statements are incorrect.

A concussion is a physiological change in the brain induced by a biomechanical force. A force can be applied anywhere on the body causing an ‘impulsive’ force transmitted to the head.  This transmitted ‘impulse’ to the head causes a short lived impairment of neurological functions that can resolve spontaneously, but some neurological functions can come on immediately, after several minutes, or hours after a trauma.[1]

Signs and symptoms of a concussion that often go unnoticed are: feeling ‘foggy’, headaches, feeling overly emotional, unexplained sadness, irritability, forgetfulness, slow reaction time, sleepy, and insomnia. When someone is having one of these symptoms (and there is a mechanism of injury that could dictate the reasons), a concussion must be suspected and a proper assessment must be made by a MD, DO or DC. On the sidelines, an ATC or medic can also evaluate an athlete.

What if the symptoms get worse? If a headache becomes worse, if slurred speech occurs, seizure or convulsion, decrease in coordination - the patient should receive immediate medical attention due to the possibility of a deeper cerebral injury.

Concussions also have different degrees of severity. According to the Cantu guidelines, concussions have several grading scales: Grades I, II, and III. Grade I concussions are not associated with loss of consciousness, and post-traumatic amnesia is either absent or less than 30 minutes in duration. Athletes may return to play if no symptoms are present for one week. Grade II is a loss of consciousness for less than five minutes or exhibit post-traumatic amnesia between 30 minutes and 24 hours in duration. They also may return to play after one week of being asymptomatic. Grade III concussions involve post-traumatic amnesia for more than 24 hours or unconsciousness for more than five minutes. Players who sustain this grade of brain injury should be sidelined for at least one month, after which they can return to play if they are asymptomatic for one week.[2] The week begins the day after all symptoms have dissipated.

The reason for the athlete to rest more and be reevaluated is due to the dangers of a possible second concussion also known as Second Impact Syndrome, which is highly dangerous. Here is why: When someone suffers a first concussion, there is a physiological change occurring in the brain that does not allow proper signaling between the synapses. When a second concussion occurs, the brain may lose the ability to properly regulate blood flow causing the brain to swell due to increase pooling in brain. The pooling does not allow the blood to drain causing pressure build-up in the brain ultimately resulting in brain damage and/or death.  

So, how do we prevent concussions? Preventing a concussion is hard. There is no real way to prevent a concussion predominantly due to the fact that a concussion does not need to be a direct blow to the head. Concussions can be caused by shoulder charges in soccer, tackling in football, bumping your head on a cabinet door, getting rear-ended in a motor vehicle accident, or even texting while walking and walking into a lamp pole. Concussions, again, are physiological changes in the brain. Headgear and helmets are great for general protection against skull fractures. Mouth guards are also good for preventing an athlete to bite off his tongue, however be aware that when wearing mouth guards, they can cause an athlete to clench his jaw allowing the muscles in the neck and head to tighten up before an impact. This allows less chance of a neck sprain/ strain, but because a concussion is a physiological change in the brain, an athlete may still suffer a concussion. All studies, and including the International Conference on Concussions in Sports, show there are no studies conclusive against protection for concussion.

When managing a concussion, first thing first: parents, coaches, teachers, and teammates need to be aware of the symptoms and get the person properly evaluated. Concussions are difficult to manage due to the severity and, more importantly, due to the physiological changes that occur in the brain. First of all, the athlete or patient should rest. Rest is going to be the key to begin the healing process: this includes resting from training and playing. For young adults, teens, and children resting also means staying home and/or limiting school activities; the information can cause the brain to overwork and as a result decrease healing. Another rest is from technology including video games, TV, computer, phones, and texting because the stimuli that the brain needs to function can overwork the brain resulting in decrease healing time. Secondly, water! Drink plenty of water. Drinking water allows an athlete to stay hydrated, and allows the body to increase healing potential.

What else is available for management? Chiropractic care and adjustments are great with concussions. When someone suffers a concussion there is also a whiplash injury that occurs simultaneously at the upper cervical (neck) area. This causes a physiological change in the muscles surrounding the spine often times causes tightens. It’s putting an extra strain on the neck which in turn will put an extra strain on the healing process for the concussion. Getting adjusted allows less interference on the central nervous system which helps the body change physiologically back to its normal state. Mild Hyperbaric Chamber is another great tool that can be utilized. The hyperbaric chamber increases the oxygen, and pressurizes the body allowing the oxygen to absorb in the body to allow healing to happen at a faster pace.  

Concussions affect everyone from the parent to the athlete. For proper healing, it is imperative to understand the first steps to recovery which are understanding what a concussion is and being knowledgable of the best ways for a concussion to heal. When a concussion occurs, it becomes a full effort by everyone to help the athlete reach full recovery.

For recovery: Ice, Heat or ...? The Marc Pro

This months tip, "when to use the Marc Pro" stems from a question asked of me yesterday from a patient of mine who owns one. He is a Hockey player and was asking when is the best time to use it. I asked him when does he use it now? He said "when I think about it, which is once a week". 

So here is my tip. If you worked out once a week, would you get stronger? If you focused on your job once a week, would that help you become more successful? No. then how can using the Marc Pro once a week help your body recover better, faster, stronger?

The answer, it can't. So when do you use the Marc Pro? Instead of ice or heat, use the Marc Pro. After activity, use the Marc Pro. After long plane flights, long drives, long day at the desk-Use the Marc Pro.

The Marc Pro creates blood flow, using it often creates, Angiogenisis (creation or addition of more capillaries). More blood flow allows the body to detox and new nutrients to flood the muscles and surrounding tissue. Pitchers are using the Marc Pro between innings to keep their shoulders healthy and recovered so they can maintain a good showing on the mound. Cross Fit athletes are using the Marc Pro to recover between WODs. Cyclist are using the Marc Pro after their rides to refresh their legs.

Since its battery powered use it on the drive home, at the office and or on the side lines. For you Motocrossers and rock climbers, use it on your forearms daily to develop more Capillaries to help decrease arm pump. 

When you think about it, with the promo code: GOTCSI, the unit costs 50+ a month (until paid for). This is less expensive than most hour massages, AND you can use it all day everyday. Don't let your unit collect dust, use it to become a better and more successful athlete! Tell a friend.
