Used widely across many sports, chiropractic adjustments and therapies can help to boost overall performance, decrease downtime due to injury and keep athletes in top shape. If you workout consistently, you are an athlete. This does include you!! So give back to your spine from all the physical stressors that you put on to your spine whether they are good physical stressors (like working out) or bad stressors like STRESS.
Common Injuries in Sports
Forceful impacts, repetitive motions and overuse often lead to sports injuries at any age. (Think: tackling in football, crouching as a catcher in baseball or softball, repeated movements as a gymnast and even lifting weights in the gym) Avoiding the injuries is optimal—and if you have experienced an injury, healing as rapidly as possible is critical to overall well-being and your ability to continue to enjoy the sport you love.
Chiropractic care can aid in reducing muscle strain injuries.
Chiropractic “Spinal Health”
Many people don’t realize how critical spinal health is to the overall health of the entire body. Misalignments in the spine can happen due to trauma and injury, among other things. Chiropractors as healthcare providers are trained to diagnose and treat these misalignments. Poor spinal health hinders the function of the nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs and a network of nerve cells and fibers that transmit signals to different parts of the body.
Through adjustments and therapies, chiropractic physicians help to return the body to an optimal state. This helps reduce tension, pain and the overall likelihood of injury.
Children’s Sports and Chiropractic
Chiropractic care isn’t just for pros and adults—children can also reap huge benefits from ongoing care. Chiropractic is perfectly safe for children of any age. It is an important tool for preventing long-term damage to your child’s growing body.
Choose Chiropractic First
Choosing chiropractic as your first line of defense once an injury occurs can decrease the likelihood of surgery and further injury. Talk to your chiropractor to learn more about how regular care can boost your performance, as well as prevent and manage injury.
