Chiropractic Care for Student-Athletes
By Donna Stark
The start of fall means it is time to prepare for another season of sports, and for some student-athletes, it could also mean it's time to prepare for a season of injuries and pain too. Did you know that injuries in young athletes are often downplayed because children and teens are more "resilient" than adults? Well, the truth is, they aren't always as resilient as we imagine them to be because their injuries are just as bad as everyone else's. Here's why regular chiropractic adjustments at The Joint Chiropractic are one of the best ways to keep your children healthy during their favorite game.
Reduced Risk of Injury
There is no better, or safer, way to reduce the risk of sports injuries than routine chiropractic care. The adjustments your chiropractor provides will place your child's spine in proper alignment and return it to optimal health and function. Why is this important? Well, when the spine is in proper alignment, the rest of the body follows suit and as a result, your child may experience less joint dysfunction and muscle strain.
Your child is at it every single day, trying to improve their distance, speed, and strength. In fact, aren't there days when you find yourself marveling at their tenacity? So why not give them a little help? Regular chiropractic adjustments can improve flexibility, increase range of motion, and restore balance and coordination. Your child's athletic performance will definitely be improved with these benefits, but that's not all! This extra mobility will significantly decrease their risk of injuries too.
Shortened Recovery Time
If your child is sidelined with an injury, don't worry. Chiropractic adjustments are great for the healing and recovery process their body is about to begin. Chiropractic care helps decrease inflammation, improve blood flow, and restore joint and muscle function. It's also good to know that chiropractic care is completely all-natural. Your child won't have to deal with any of the side effects that often come with prescription medications and other forms of treatments.
