How does chiropractic help athletes?
Many athletes get sidelined with injuries that could have otherwise been avoided. Another reason they get sidelined is because the injuries they do sustain do not respond to traditional medical care. If received prior to the sports activities, chiropractic care from a sports chiropractor keeps the body at its highest functioning capacity and helps to eliminate imbalance which can prevent injury. In the case of sustaining an injury, chiropractic care can often solve problems that traditional medical care cannot.
Injured athletes who continue to play while injured do so at less than peak efficiency. This is because their structural system is not properly balanced. Coaches and athletes are starting to turn away from pain killers as they recognize that such drugs only mask pain. These drugs do not address the root cause of the pain. This strategy can often worsen an injury and it is possible that is can make full recovery impossible.
The best thing about Chiropractic care from a sports chiropractor is not only that it is drug free but it is also performance enhancing and preventative care. Maintaining proper spinal alignment can put an athlete into a state of peak efficiency. Getting adjusted after the bodily stress of a fight or game can assist the athlete to a quicker recovery.
