We believe that chiropractic care should be part of a regular routine for athletes. In this article we’ll focus on sports injuries and how chiropractic care helps with performance. Sports injuries can be aided by chiropractic care, creating a faster recovery and chiropractic care can help prevent injuries.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Sports Injuries?
There are numerous demands that a sport puts on the body of an athlete. When the body goes through these activities on a regular basis, sprains, strains, tears, stiffness and soreness can occur. Chiropractic care helps treat and prevent injuries of the neck, shoulder, knee, ankle and back. When you are adjusted your spine is kept in alignment and balanced. This allows the body to function better and less likely to have an injury.
Sports injuries are normally caused through forceful impact. Chiropractors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them recover after an injury.
Spinal mobilization is used for patients that require a gentle approach, and utilizes tools or simple stretches to release pressure in joints.
In addition to adjustments and spinal manipulation, an athlete may also be treated with ice, heat and electric stimulation.
Regular visits to a chiropractor will help promote quicker recovery from a sports injury. In addition, regular visits can help overall performance and better balance.
If you take a look at almost any professional sports team, they have a chiropractor on staff. They travel with the team, provide daily treatments and are a large part of the overall health of the team.
