How Chiropractic Care Is an Athlete's Secret Weapon

Road cycling teamTom Brady. Michael Jordan. Ronda Rousey. These elite athletes are just some of the many pros who use chiropractic care to up their game. You don’t have to be an elite athlete, however, to experience the many benefits of chiropractic care. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, diehard CrossFitter or occasional golfer, chiropractic care can help you be at your athletic best.

Five Ways Athletes Can Benefit

Here are some major advantages athletes can enjoy when they make chiropractic care a routine part of their game plan.

Improves Performance

Whether you have a misaligned spine or a knee injury, either of those can interfere with the functions of all other systems within the body as those parts are all connected. Athletic performance can suffer as a result. However, by getting regular adjustments, your spine can function properly which, in turn, helps make sure your other body parts can function as they should.

Want to shave a minute off your mile? Improve your golf swing? Whatever your sports performance goal, regular adjustments can improve the body’s overall performance which in turn can boost athletic performance.

Prevents Injuries

Did you know that even a minor injury and alignment issue can cause unnecessary stress on the body? That stress can often lead to more injuries. Our chiropractors can keep your musculoskeletal system working properly so your body is less prone to injury.

We can provide tailored programs that focus on injury avoidance, ensuring that athletes are at less risk for future injuries. For example, a chiropractor could help a golfer correct their postural imbalance so that their swing leads to fewer injuries.

Improves Range of Motion

One of the greatest benefits of getting chiropractic adjustments for athletes is the improved range of motion. Because athletes put significant pressure on their bodies when training their physically intense activities can produce problems with spinal alignment and movement. An athlete can quickly end up with stiffness and pain in their joints. By correcting misalignment in an athlete’s spine, range of motion can be restored. One of our patients is a woman in her 90s who still enjoys golfing! Chiropractic allows her to enjoy her favorite sport.

Relieves Pain

From shin splints to knee pain to Achilles tendonitis and tennis or golfer’s elbow, pain is common among athletes. As many people don’t want to rely on OTC or prescription painkillers for their sports-related discomfort, chiropractic offers an effective and all-natural alternative. Not only does chiropractic relieve pain but it restores the body’s healthy alignment.

Speeds up Recovery Time

If you have an injury, you don’t want to be sidelined from your favorite sport for longer than necessary. Chiropractic care can help speed up your recovery time. Your chiropractor will use an array of all-natural techniques designed to promote faster healing.
