Athlete or Not, Your Joints Matter
By Genevieve Smith
Athletes have a lot of support when it comes to keeping in shape and staying ready to rock the next win. Nutritionists, coaches and all the right gear can get an athlete so far. To carry them through injuries, recovery, and ultimate performance capacity, a chiropractor is available to take athletes all the way. But what if you're not an athlete? Chiropractors are skilled at addressing chronic pain and injuries from repetitive motion. Let a chiropractor get the job done.
How Chiropractors Can Help Athletes
Playing sports involves quick movements and repetitive motion, which can put the body in distress. Oftentimes, micro-injuries accumulate at the joints, unbeknownst to an athlete, and the weakened area isn’t given time to heal. These tiny injuries set a player up for larger damage down the road. A chiropractor is skilled at noticing signs on the path to injury, from inflammation to a decreased range of motion. Through manual manipulation and regular checkups, a chiropractor can help keep athletes at peak performance. Stay on top of damage and help speed up the recovery process through helping the body heal itself.
How Chiropractors Can Help You
Repetitive tasks like typing, chopping ingredients, or hauling heavy loads can lead to the same micro-injuries that athletes rack up. Signs to look for are inflammation, dull pain, and a reduced range of motion. A chiropractor can help advise on how to improve posture when engaging in these tasks, and dig into the healing process through manual manipulations. These manipulations will help identify areas under stress and bring blood flow to joints to get the healing process going. Chiropractors will also notice if joints have slipped out of place and help guide them back into their natural spot over time.
Whether you’re an athlete or just generally hard at work, a chiropractor is ready to serve you. Stay in top form for your sport of choice through regular checkups. Chiropractors will help identify areas that have become agitated or weakened, and help speed up the recovery process. For anyone, the key to chiropractic care is regular maintenance to keep tabs on joint health, much like visits to the dentist.
