Sports Related Injury Rehabilitation

To win, 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!

Whether you are a weekend, a professional athlete or just shooting hoops in the back yard– you want to perform at your very best in your chosen sport, and AVOID injury at all cost.

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 activity you enjoy. That’s why chiropractic doctors have become the doctors of choice. The sports chiropractor can enhance an athlete’s recovery from injury and prevent future injury.

Usually there is a very simple reason why we get injured. In most cases, we play too hard, too long, or too fast, putting strain on the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.

Overuse syndromes and playing full speed before warming up are the major causes of sports injuries. Since most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops, or positioning that places an unusual amount of strain on the back and structural system.

There are a growing number of current and former professional and world-class athletes who realize the value of proper structural alignment and balance in their bodies. 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.

Athletes under Chiropractic care also have greater flexibility and stamina, and they recover from injuries faster than those not under Chiropractic care, which just may give you the winning edge you need to outperform your competition!

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.

We know you’re tough — but you also need to be smart. If you suspect a serious injury or have been injured while playing a sport and want to benefit from chiropractic care, regular chiropractic adjustments can help keep you functioning and performing at your best… all the time!!
