Why Athletes Get their Spines Adjusted

By Sara Butler

Athletes of all levels seek out chiropractic care. In fact, chiropractors are often an integral part of sports teams, both professional and non-professional, that help athletes perform at their best, attempt to avoid injury, and recover from injury if it occurs. But athletes aren’t the only people who can benefit from the treatment of a chiropractor. Here are the reasons athletes seek out chiropractic care that should motivate you to give it a try too!

Body Awareness

One of the benefits of chiropractic care for an athlete is it makes them more aware of their bodies and how they should function as well as feel. Athletes are obviously very active people, and because they’re so active in high impact sports, it puts them at a greater risk for injury. When they are adjusted by a chiropractor, normal function is restored to the nervous system and the rest of the body, helping them to be more aware of how their bodies should feel when everything is working as it should so they can seek help when something doesn’t feel right.

Enhanced Movement

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study that found people who receive regular chiropractic care noted a 10 percent improvement in response time and movement than those who don’t seek chiropractic care. This is one of the ways in which athletes and non-athletes can avoid injury in their everyday lives. Better movement and reaction time can allow for dangerous situations and accidents to be avoided and the body to remain healthier!

Improved Balance

Balance is really important to everyone, not just athletes. Chiropractic care can help to restore balance to the entire body by correcting disturbances in the central nervous system. This allows for signals to flow freely between the brain and various parts of the body. One of the best side effects of this is better balance!

Amplified Flexibility

Flexibility is very important to your overall health since it allows for full range of movement and lowers your risk of injury. Chiropractic care helps to align your spine and other joints so that they can maneuver more easily. This allows for better performance and a healthier body for everyone, athlete or not!

You don’t have to be a professional athlete to reap the benefits of chiropractic care. If you’ve never been to a chiropractor it’s never too late to start – you may be amazed by how good you feel once you start seeing your chiropractor regularly! If you have any questions or concerns about your body and its performance, you should discuss it with the chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic today!
