How Chiropractic Care Can Make You a Better Athlete

How Chiropractic Care Can Make You a Better Athlete

 No matter what sport you play or how you work out, athletes are constantly pushing their bodies to their limits. Strength and better athletic skills require work from the entire body, even if your sport of choice mainly focuses on one part.

Unfortunately, failing to practice or play properly can result in an injury that halts your entire career or life as an athlete. Overall physical health is crucial for athletes.

Chiropractic care can help. A visit to the chiropractor can benefit athletes in all kinds of ways.

Athletic Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor

Promotes Best Spinal Alignment: Your spinal cord is a part of your nervous system. Encouraging proper spinal alignment has an impact on the rest of your body.

Aligning the spine can help the circulation of nutrients and oxygen that help athletes power through a hard workout. Proper alignment can take weight off of your back and core, saving your strength for game time.

Having each part of your spine in the right place can also protect your spine if you fall or are hit. An optimal athlete starts with a strong and aligned core and back.

Releasing Tension in Tight Muscles: A game or workout can put your muscles under stress, increasing your risk for an injury. Get rid of this stress by booking a massage.

Releasing tension increases flexibility, helps the body manage pain, and boosts the amount of endorphins running through your body. A massage can also increase circulation throughout the body, allowing nutrients to reach the appropriate places faster, and reducing lactic acid, buildup, and cellular waste throughout the body. Finally, massage prepares your body for a peak performance.

Some chiropractors offer massage that is specifically created for athletes, or offer alternative types of massages, including hydromassage.

Decrease Pain: If there is stress or pressure on the muscles or joints, an athlete is more likely to feel pain on and off the field. Chiropractic care can relieve pain through a variety of methods.

Chiropractors are best known for manipulating or decompressing the spine to give joints proper alignment, or offering massage to help manage pain better. However, there’s so much more chiropractors can offer, like electric stimulation therapy, which treats muscle spasms and related pains.

Electric stim therapy is non-invasive and not painful. It contracts muscles through low pulses of electricity and promotes circulation to the area.

Faster Healing Time after Sports Injuries: Accidents happen, but after an injury, it’s hard to refrain from activity and focus on healing. In order to get back to playing as you were before your injury, there is a necessary period of rest.

Trying to work your muscles and body at the same pace as you did before your injury will only make things worse. In the meantime, there are steps that you can take to speed up the healing process. Appointments with a chiropractor can give athletes the proper treatment they need to recover and get back on the field in no time.

Chiropractic care has been proven in a number of studies to alleviate a wide range of injuries, including shoulder injuries, injuries affecting the head and neck, and leg injuries. Each injury may require a different type of chiropractic treatment.

If an athlete’s spine is bumped around or affected by an injury, chiropractors can realign the spine. If the affected area is inflamed and painful, but the athlete doesn’t want to sacrifice their range of motion, the chiropractor can apply kinesio tape to activate neurological and circulatory systems within the body. Physical therapists at a chiropractic care center can help to improve range of motion after an accident.

No matter what method of treatment is used for the injury, a chiropractor will make sure that it benefits the entire body and promotes performance.

Tips Moving Forward: Chiropractic care doesn’t always end when you leave the chiropractor’s office. In order to keep the body in its best shape after recovery, a chiropractor may offer advice on stretches and exercises to perform before and after a game.

Since chiropractic care is holistic (meaning it looks at the whole body, rather than just one joint or limb), dietary and other wellness suggestions may even be made.

Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Sports Performance

Chiropractic care is a natural, holistic approach to treating sports injuries and preparing athletes for their best performance on the field. Medications or surgeries can come with dangerous side effects or months of recovery time off the field. Get back in the game faster as an optimal athlete by making an appointment with a Florida chiropractor.
