How Chiropractic Care Can Improve Your Athletic Performance
From teenagers to veteran athletes, chiropractic care can improve your athletic performance and enhance your overall quality of life. Regular chiropractic care can reduce inflammation, help the body achieve and maintain proper alignment, and minimize the risk of injury.
Reducing Chronic Inflammation:
While most treatments offer relief for the symptoms of pain and inflammation, chiropractic care targets some of the root causes. Not all inflammation is bad. Our body uses acute inflammation as a means of healing. However, when chronic inflammation affects the body, a chain reaction of negative events can occur (swelling, pain, and injury).
By restoring proper spinal alignment and joint function through chiropractic care, swelling can decrease and healing takes place. This enables the body to function optimally, especially when partnered with nourishing the body with the right foods, adequate water intake, and an appropriate balance of rest and activity. As athletes, this combination is vital for success.
Maintaining Proper Alignment:
When something feels “off” in the body, it detrimentally affects the ability to perform. From the perfect golf swing to a marathon run, you can achieve your highest goals when the body functions in proper alignment. Chiropractic care can treat specific parts: the neck, shoulders, knees, even wrists – which are impacted by different sports and activities.
Whether you need to target a specific area of the body or simply desire to complete routine maintenance, you can reach your greatest potential with the help of your chiropractor.
Minimizing the Risk of Injury:
The proper alignment of the spine leads to less tension in the body, which enables stronger, more fluid movement when performing or competing. When the body is less stressed, the risk of injury decreases. Correct alignment also enhances the quality of sleep, which undeniably affects athletic performance.
