How Chiropractic Treatment Make Better Athletes
An athlete’s performance is affected by a combination of strength, flexibility, speed and coordination. For optimal performance, the athlete’s musculoskeletal condition must be in sync to deliver this combination efficiently. His spine, joints, musculature, ligaments and tendons will bear the brunt of physical forces involved in his sport. Certainly, he is exposed to a variety of trauma and injuries.
When there is something amiss in spinal movement and/or alignment, the resulting altered positions can create focal areas of irritation in the nervous system, which leads to the interference with the functions of all other systems. As a result, athletic performance suffers. When athletes get chiropractic adjustments regularly, they will often attribute their success to regular chiropractic care. In other words, chiropractic reverts the beating the body takes in the name of sports.
Routine adjustments result in improved range of motion, better flexibility, and increased blood circulation. The adjustments will reduce the irritation of the spinal nerve roots, improve healing time, and hence, improving performance. Chiropractic adjustments can heal a variety of athlete ailments and their symptoms, such as headaches, shoulder pain and ankle sprains and injuries, plus reducing the risk for injuries. Athletes who go for adjustment after competition speeds the recuperative process after the stress of their event.
Athletes favor the non invasive and drug free treatment aspect of chiropractic adjustments making it a safer alternative course of therapy. No injection, blood transfusions, no hospital stay is required to deter athletes’ time in training, practice or real-time competition. Medication-free, chiropractic therapy ensures
no presence of drug side-effects or adverse reactions that can affect performance or even daily routine. Chiropractic adjustments are indeed a preventative and performance enhancing care.
