Chiropractic doctors can improve sports performance by effectively treating common sports-related injuries such as muscle strains, tennis elbow, pelvic sprains, and even those diagnosed with concussions. Chiropractors focus on relieving pressure in the joints, soft tissue and utilize spinal adjusting techniques to prevent injuries and improve recovery time.
One of the biggest benefits of regular chiropractic treatments is improved range of motion. Athletes put a lot of pressure on their bodies every time they train, and physically intense activities can create problems with spinal alignment and movement. An athlete can easily end up with stiffness and pain in their joints. Extremity adjustments means adjusting joints in the jaws, ribs, shoulders, back, hips, knees, and other areas. We do this to relive pain and help your muscles and bones function at optimal levels. These treatments are very successful with all types of athletes.
Whether you have a child participating in gymnastics or you are an avid runner or a participant in the Olympics, chiropractic care improves sports performance by increasing mobilization, eye-hand coordination, dexterity and balance. Chiropractic also reduces both the number of injuries during a game, the severity of injuries and the rehabilitation period.
