Get Back in the Game With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
There is no doubt about it. Suffering from pain and injury is the worst, but it is even more so if you are a person who tries to stay as physically active as you can! When you are hurting, your training takes a back seat, your goals take a back seat, and inevitably, you take a back seat too. Why, you may as well be a grounded teenager all over again because while you are stuck at home, your friends still get to play, right? Fortunately, your local chiropractors aren't a fan of deja vu. They don't want you experiencing the horrible flashbacks of being a grounded teenager. No, they would rather help get you back in the game!
Recovering From an Injury
If you see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic regularly, you know that they do their best to help reduce your risk of sports-related injuries. But they're not magicians, and accidents and rough play can still occur when you are active. If you become injured, your best bet is to seek care at The Joint Chiropractic. Here's how chiropractic adjustments can help with your recovery process.
- Treats the root cause of your pain
- Reduces inflammation, friction, and pressure
- Eases muscle tension and strain
- Removes joint restrictions and nerve interference
- Restores natural function to the joints and muscles
- Reestablishes a full range of motion and flexibility
- Improves strength and coordination
- Corrects alignment issues
Your chiropractor isn't the only one taking care of your body ... you are too! If you want a speedy healing process and are looking forward to things going back to normal, make sure you are doing the following at home.
- Be patient - You will have more success with your recovery if you start the healing process slowly. Are you familiar with that saying, "one step forward, two steps back?" Well, you don't want that to be your experience.
- Listen to your body - Your body speaks loud and clear if you take the time to listen to it. If you are feeling better as each day passes, you are on the right track. If you are feeling worse, you may need to reevaluate what you are doing. Be sure to keep your doctor and chiropractor informed of how you feel every time you see them.
- Increase activity when it is right - If your body is telling you that it can do more, go ahead and do more, but test the waters first! Don't cannonball it at the first chance you get.
