How Chiropractic Amps Up Your Baseball Game
By Genevieve Smith
Chiropractic care has helped baseball teams take their competitive edge to the next level. Players in both the major and minor leagues have been able to avoid injuries and enhance their performance through arduous seasons. Face it, the baseball season is a grind. At the moment, 28 teams in both the MLB and MiLB use chiropractic care to carry them through home games and spring training. How can chiropractic help baseball performance, whether you're on the Angels or a rec league softball player?
- Addresses the shoulder and upper thoracic region, lower back and hips
- Promotes faster recoveries
- Reduces risk of injury
- Enhances performance on the field
Regular chiropractic adjustments bring sound spinal function and better balance to players, which leads to a drop in spinal injuries, keeping players on the field. When they do get injured, those receiving regular adjustments are found to recover more quickly. Many players find that their body mechanics are made better by adjustments, leading to better pitching, batting, and throwing. Chiropractic care for players is tailored to their specific sporting needs, and in the case of baseball, the shoulder and hip areas tend to be the ones which bear the brunt of the game.
A Perfect Sporting Match
Chiropractic is embraced by sports teams as a performance enhancer and a way to keep players in their best shape. Not only does baseball harness the power of chiropractic, you'd be hard-pressed to find a major sport which doesn't. Teams in the NFL, NBA, MLB, US National Olympic teams, NHL, and MLS either have team chiropractors or send their players to specific practices. These sports and teams have their players' best performance in mind, and they find chiropractic to be a good complement to the rest of their sports medicine regimen. This was not always the case, however, and for many years, chiropractic was not incorporated into sports health routines. The techniques have been welcomed into the professional sporting world in the last 20 years as players have found the measurable benefits to inviting chiropractic into their regimen.
