Chiropractor For Performing Artist’s Injuries
Performing Artist’s Injury Rehabilitation
When you think about it, Musicians, Dancers and Actors are just like athletes. They put tremendous stresses on their bodies’ day in and day out, and are keenly involved in getting an optimal performance; i.e. Win! Whether finely tuned coordinated movements, or explosively dynamic whirls and twirls, peak performance demands are high – and with a price!
These “special athletes” active lifestyles require repetitive physical activity and enormous physical exertions, which are just a part of the normal practice, rehearsal and performance routines they go through. And naturally, all this activity comes along with wear, tear, stress, strain, and occasionally… trauma. The results show up in places like the spine, joints, discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, and sadly disrupt creative output, or worse, shorten and end careers.
Whether you’re the new budding artistic person, casual dabbler for your own enjoyment, occasional weekend performer, or full time professional – you want to perform at your very best, and AVOID injury at all cost. To accomplish both, Chiropractic doctors have become the doctors of choice. The sports or biomechanically-oriented Chiropractor can enhance a performance artist’s recovery from injury and prevent future injury. How? With specialized evaluations of the structural system and Chiropractic Adjustments!
Often there are simple reasons we come down with problems or get injured. The “arduous” active lifestyle of performance artists, in most cases, means we’ve played too long, too hard, or too fast, exceeding the capacities of joints and soft tissues to hold up – whether from repetitive overuse, performing without adequate warm-up, or injury.
When this gets put together with the silently advancing structural imbalances, subtle joint motion disturbances and soft tissue de-conditionings most of us have, it’s not a matter of IF, but only WHEN we will “break down”! These then are experienced as the back pains, neck pains, carpal tunnel and other joint and muscle pains, and headaches that could have been prevented with regular Chiropractic checkups.
A growing number of professional and world-class performers are realizing the benefits of what research has proven: “tune-ups” ahead of a performance place their bodies in a state of peak efficiency. Chiropractic care following the event enhances their recuperative process, and minimizes downtime. All this from what has been demonstrated to be: improved coordination, better balance, faster reaction times and increased muscular power… and all these being elements of longevity and performing at your best!
The greater flexibility, stamina and faster recovery from injury and overuse afforded through Chiropractic care, may be just what brings you that Gold! – the Oscar, Grammy, or Golden Globe.
Of course, you don’t have to have a Red Carpet Runway and an Award Gala in your sights to benefit from Chiropractic care. Each year, 20 million Americans go to the Chiropractor, with 90 percent of them seeking treatment for musculoskeletal problems like back pain, neck pain, headache and other joint and muscle pains. Many of these could have been prevented by regular Chiropractic checkups.
We know you’re creative – but you also need to be smart! You need to take care of THE instrument that’s doing all the creating. If you suspect a serious injury, are experiencing a chronic problem or feel you are developing one, and want to benefit from Chiropractic care, regular Chiropractic adjustments can help keep you functioning and performing at your best… all the time!!
