Athletes both young and old can endure an array of physical demand on their body. From back pain, neck pain and just regular joint pain, athletes often experience discomfort due to the toll their training can take on their body.
The 2015 Masters finished with a record setting victory by native Texan Jordan Spieth and a shout out to chiropractic care. Spieth thanked his “team” that allowed his “on-course efforts to come out,” which included his doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Troy Van Biezen.
Spieth knows something we believe to be true as well- regular chiropractic care can be an added benefit to athletes. Sports and competition put a strain on the body for most participants, and athletes that make chiropractic care part of their routine help avoid damage to the body and aid in healing of injuries.
One of the greatest benefits to chiropractic care is the preventive care it provides for the body. The back can endure quite a bit of impact, and the muscle groups can become weak or tired. Regular chiropractic care also helps alleviate subluxations that can lead to injury. Adjustments from your chiropractor allow the spine to align, thus allowing the body to perform at its peak, such as what Spieth experienced in the Masters Tournament.
In addition, chiropractic care aids the body when an injury is present. Adjustments help the body to heal itself by increasing blood flow and breaking up any restrictions. Neck, back and knee pain are common areas of injury and inflammation- and also key to any athlete’s success. Visiting your chiropractor often is key, especially when injury is present.
