Why is chiropractic care important for athletes?
High and low impact sports can have a huge effect on athletes and their bodies. Studies show that high impact sports can place the same amount of strain on the body as an auto accident, causing things such as pain, misalignments, and more. Getting adjusted regularly can improve your nervous system by removing imbalances and alleviating stressors caused by sports. Once the body is brought back to its ideal state the body can fight injuries, promote healing and repair, and maintain peak physical health.
How can chiropractic care help athletes?
Misalignments and small injuries can add extra stress on the body, which in the end causes more injuries. Getting adjusted regularly keeps the musculoskeletal system working at its optimal potential. Making it less prone to injury. For example, a chiropractor could help a golfer correct their posture so that their swing won’t cause injury.
Reduced Recovery Time
Adjustments help ensure that every bone and tissue are in proper alignment. This increases more space and blood flow so that the body can adequately heal quickly and correctly.
When we endure misalignments, it can put pressure on our nerves causing pain. When you get adjusted pressure is taken off of the nerves, therefore reducing the pain.
Non Invasive/ Drug Free
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free form of natural health care. Drugs can be addictive and only provide temporary relief, covering the root problem. Surgery is invasive and often have long recovery periods. Chiropractic care can get to the root issue without involving either.
