CHIROPRACTIC & ATHLETES
Athletes of all types, from the weekend warrior to the world-class athlete, utilize Chiropractic because it is a drug-free way to better health and performance.
Chiropractic adjustments help ensure that the body functions as efficiently as possible, which can maximize healing and recovery from all types of injuries. It is estimated that 90% of all world class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and to increase their performance potential.
Athletes training can often jar and misalign the spinal column because the spine is at the center of the body. Impact to the legs, feet, head, shoulders, and torso often radiates to the spine. Misalignments in the spine which are known as "vertebral subluxations" cause nerve interference and weaken the entire structure of the spine. Doctors of Chiropractic detect and correct vertebral subluxations by physically adjusting the spine. This restores the spine and nervous system to a more optimal level of function, wherein maximizes the body's performance and healing potential.
Anyone who engages in athletics can benefit from regular chiropractic checkups to ensure that their spine is balanced and free from structural stress and subluxations. When the spinal column is brought into balance and alignment, the body's nervous system and body mechanics (movement and posture) are maximized. By concentrating on the entire structure of the body, Chiropractors can often detect and help to prevent an injury that might normally be overlooked. Proper biomechanical structure allows athletes to achieve and maintain their optimal level of performance - safely and naturally.
