Athletes who receive regular chiropractic care have a leg up on the competition! Whether you consider your self an elite athlete, or relate more with those of us who enjoy exercise and working our bodies, routine chiropractic care has a significant positive impact on your ability to avoid injury and remain healthy.
There is no doubt that daily physical exercise provides overwhelming benefits to the human body. Our cardiovascular systems are improved, muscle mass and strength is maintained, and it is easier to sustain a healthy weight. Other added benefits include increased endorphins and improved mental health. Physical activity is linked with preventing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and back pain—just to name a few!
With physical activity, though, comes the risk for injury. We demand a lot from our bodies whether we are on the track, on the court, or on the field. Sore muscles, torn soft tissues, and achy bones are common among the physically active. Which is where physical medicine and chiropractic care are a welcome addition to an athlete’s training.
At our clinic, we treat a range of athletes, from some of the best in their sport to those who consider their activity more of a hobby. However with each patient, we complete a thorough evaluation to assess your body’s current standing and to determine the best form of care for you. If you are currently experiencing pain related to a sports injury, we work to determine the root of your painful symptoms, and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Once we have helped alleviate your symptoms, we will team with you to design a maintenance chiropractic care plan that will help you remain injury-free.
On that note, athletes who receive consistent chiropractic care are less prone to injury. Chiropractic adjustments ensure spinal alignment and health, so that your neck, spine, and back are in the best shape possible to withstand any stress produced while you exercise. Our highly skilled physical medicine professionals will see you on a regular basis to help keep everything in check.
