Chiropractic Care for Athletes
Sports Injuries & Risks
Different sports and activities come with varying risks of injury, but there are common occurrences among athletes. Most sports injuries manifest as some sort of traumatic injury, like a torn ligament, a sprain, or a broken bone. But even more minor things like collisions and falls can cause the spine to be knocked out of alignment, leading to stress and pain in joints, muscles, nerves, discs, and ligaments. You may not notice big issues with these things, but as they build up, they can put your body at risk for even more injury as they leave you vulnerable to further misalignment. The primary goal of most athletes is to prevent these types of issues from happening in the first place, often by doing things such as stretching and staying hydrated which allow the body to better acclimate to vigorous movement. All athletes should go the extra mile to ensure they do not suffer injuries and risk their ability to play and compete.
Professionals Rely on Chiropractic Care
Routine chiropractic adjustments are heavily employed by professional athletes not only to address injuries, but also to prevent them from happening. Adjustments improve balance and flexibility and can help make certain movements easier on the spine. Like another form of a warm-up, professional athletes rely on chiropractic adjustments to enhance their performance and keep their bodies ready to perform. These athletes are often putting more strain on the body than the average person does, so regularly visiting a chiropractor can address anything that may have resulted from that additional stress before it becomes an issue. Proper spinal adjustments can also reduce irritation of nerve roots between vertebrae, meaning that when minor injuries do occur, healing time can be reduced because the body is in a healthy state due to regular chiropractic care.
