Chiropractic Care and Sports Performance
There’s a secret behind the success of many professional athletes. Many of the world's top athletes rely on Chiropractic care to stay at the top of their game.
Through a unique combination of recovery, injury prevention, and performance, Chiropractors can help athletes of all fitness levels perform their best.
No matter how naturally powerful or talented you may be as an athlete, receiving Chiropractic care can have some pretty serious benefits. Most professional athletes receive Chiropractic care throughout their careers to help them make sure they continue to stay at their best.
Competitive and recreational sports can have an important impact on your musculoskeletal and related neurological systems. In fact, musculoskeletal injuries are the largest class of athletic injuries in sports, even among elite Olympic athletes.
Chiropractors can help athletes recover between workouts and improve their movement patterns & biomechanics, decreasing the risk of injury. Since athletes put their bodies through a lot of stress, their skeletal system takes a beating. Having a Chiropractor on their side helps them to make sure their body is solid, strong, and fit to keep on performing.
Sports Injuries can include:
· Low back pain
· Neck pain
· Sprains and strains
· Knee injuries
· Rotator Cuff Tears
Nearly every professional sports team has a Chiropractor on their healthcare team. Chiropractors can help athletes recover and perform by bridging the gap between the coaches, trainers, and medical staff.
Research has shown that adjustments can improve functional ability and may even be able to provide immediate short-term strength increases.
Other types of treatment may include
· Joint manipulation
· Manual mobilization
· Soft tissue therapy
· Electrical stimulation, acupuncture
Whether you’re a professional athlete or weekend warrior, one thing is for sure: Chiropractic care can help you perform at a high level and recover. Just because you’re an athlete doesn’t mean that you have a limited shelf life. Your body is built to perform.
