Chiropractic: A Clear Choice for All Athletes

By Sara Butler

If you’re an athlete – any kind of athlete – and you don’t see a chiropractor regularly, that may be something for you to rethink. There are a lot of benefits to chiropractic care for everyone, but some particular benefits for athletes of any level. Here are just a few of the ways in which you may benefit from regular chiropractic care in your athletic life!

The Impact of Sports

If you participate in high-impacts sports, such as running, football, wrestling, soccer or hockey, chiropractic offers some unique benefits. Did you know participating in a high-impact sport puts as much strain on the body as a car collision? If you get an adjustment routinely, then you can improve your performance, range of motion, increase your flexibility and help reduce the likelihood of suffering an injury. Spinal adjustments performed by your chiropractor can also help to reduce the irritation to your nerve roots that live in your spine between the vertebrae, which may help reduce healing time when you are injured.

Low Impact Athletes

If you’re an athlete of the low-impact variety and participate in sports such as golf, bowling or tennis, receiving routine adjustments from your chiropractor can help to relieve and reduce strain on your body since it helps your body to perform more optimally and address issues you may be having before they turn into bigger problems that will keep you from doing what you enjoy.

How Does Chiropractic Help?

For any athlete, chiropractic can help through:

  • Fixing asymmetries – If the strength of one side of your body is different from the other it can cause a multitude of issues. Your chiropractor is trained to find asymmetries and address them, which then helps with your flexibility and mobility. When your body is aligned appropriately and all muscles are firing as they should, you reduce your risk of injury and reduce tension.
  • Increase range of motion- When you increase your range of motion you help to reduce your chance of injury. Chiropractic adjustments help to keep your joints flexible and your range of motion at its best!

Another handy thing about having a chiropractor in your corner as an athlete is you have someone available to you at almost every moment. If you experience a problem when training or working out, all you have to do is come into The Joint Chiropractic – no appointment necessary! That way you can have the problem addressed without waiting and get back to what you enjoy sooner!
