Pain Relief & Rehabilitation After A Sports Injury

sports-injuryNo matter what the sport, athletes are always after the same thing. They all strive to have the best possible performance in their chosen sport. To accomplish that, you typically have to be bigger, stronger, faster, more flexible, more coordinated, and leaner than the competition. So, how does one achieve all those aforementioned goals?  Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments!

An athlete competing at maximum health has the greatest ability to perform at their best. Athletes put physical demands on their body jumping, running, falling and tackling. These demands may present themselves as sprains, strains, chronic injuries and negatively affect performance.

Chiropractic Care For Sports Injuries

In the competitive sports world, athletes realize that if spinal or extremity problems exist, their performance will be compromised. Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams, have retained sports chiropractors to provide care.

In fact, chiropractic is now part of the sports-medicine program of the U.S. Olympic Committee. Why do you think that is?

With a fraction of a second meaning the difference between gold and silver, many of these athletes are adjusted before competition as a “tune-up” in an effort to place their bodies in a state of peak efficiency. Following competition, they are adjusted to enhance the recuperative process after the stress of their particular event.

They have learned through their own experiences what research has proven; through Chiropractic care, one can demonstrate faster reaction times, better balance, improved coordination and increased muscular power, which are all critical to peak athletic performance.

By getting adjustments, the muscles, spine, and nervous system all work better to deliver the best power your body can deliver. This leads to better performance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery. When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned and all pistons are firing. It just might be the winning edge you need to outperform your competition!!!

Since there is no such thing as a safe sport, in all likelihood if you participate in any sport long enough, you will eventually get hurt to some degree. The way in which you treat your injuries determines how fast you will recover and get back to the sports and activities you enjoy.

Professional, amateur and weekend athletes seek out Sports Chiropractors for many reasons:

  • Quicker recovery after training/games
  • Prevention of injury
  • Peak performance
  • Better balance

Of course, you do not have to be an Olympian to benefit from chiropractic care. Each year, 20 million Americans go to the chiropractor, 90 percent of them seeking treatment for musculoskeletal problems like back pain, neck pain, other joint and muscle pains and headaches. Many of these could have been prevented by regular chiropractic spinal checkups.
