The Sportsman's Guide to Chiropractic Care
By Genevieve Cunningham
Austin is an active place with active people. In fact, it’s one of the healthiest places in the state of Texas. Some of this may be due to the large but widely diverse population. In Austin, you can find people interested in everything … from motocross to hunting to football and everything in between. The choices of activity may very well play a big role in why the city boasts such a healthy population. But while the benefits of being active far outweigh the negatives, there are in fact a few downsides to being on-the-go all the time. The biggest? Back pain! If you’re any kind of active sports enthusiast in Austin, check out this guide to how chiropractic care can greatly enhance your health and keep you active.
For the Sports Fans
If you like to get rough and tumbly on the football field or basketball court, it’s likely that you’re going to get injured from time to time, even if that injury is minor. Most sports of this nature are physical, and as we get older, that physical nature takes its toll on the body. Chiropractors can help to keep your spine healthy through it all, eliminating pain, reducing stiffness, and boosting overall health. This keeps your body feeling well and keeps you playing your favorite sport for a lifetime of activity.
For the Outdoor Type
Austin may be a big city, but there are still plenty who love the outdoor life. Hunting, archery, hiking, and shooting are all common sports in the area. Most of these sports require a lot less movement than more mainstream sports, but that doesn’t mean they’re immune from back pain. Most of these -- hunting, shooting, even archery -- require a very still position to be held for long periods of time. This lack of general movement combined with the repetitive motions can make for back pain, but especially for neck pain. Chiropractors can help ease this pain through manual spinal manipulation, which then helps you stay active in your favorite activity.
For Oddball Activities
If you like sports that are far off the mainstream course, things such as paintball, ATV riding, or similar activities, Austin is the place to be. The thing about these kinds of sports is that they are often incredibly unpredictable. This is what many people love about them, but this aspect also means it’s tougher to keep your body safe from overwork or injury. Because of the unpredictability, chiropractic care is one of the best ways to manage your body. Regular care will ensure that your back stays healthy, which then affects every other aspect of your health. And since you never know what you’re going to get during your activity, chiropractic care remains a staple that you can count on.
