Chiropractic and Athletic Performance

In sports, a common phrase. “leave it all out on the field” is used to motivate players. This suggests that an athlete put forth his or her best effort on the playing field or in the game. One doesn’t leave the field or gym without playing to their maximum effort and potential. Interestingly enough, this can be applied to each of us in life as we work to achieve better health.

  • When it comes to nutrition, make one step each day to eat healthier food.
  • With movement and fitness, take the time to go outside for a brisk walk.
  • In chiropractic, make the changes necessary to remove subluxations in your body so that your spine and nervous system can optimally function.
  • Make the decision to improve your health and ‘get into the game.

To achieve better health and a higher quality of life, it’s time to give it all you got!

Treatment Techniques

Once the athlete is feeling and functioning better, specific rehabilitation is prescribed to improve stability and function of the body and prevent future injured. Chiropractic care helps improve balance to the body and helps naturally break down scar tissue, encouraging the body to heal more completely.

Your doctor will review your case and evaluate your neuromusculoskeletal system to determine if your condition would benefit from chiropractic care. For most of our athletes and active patients, nutritional support is a vital aspect of care and promotes more complete healing.

A soft-tissue injury can occur anywhere that ligaments, tendons, muscles, or myofascia are found. Ligaments connect two or more bones and help stabilize the joints. Tendons attach muscles to bones. Ligaments, tendons, and muscles provide a natural brace to protect the bony skeleton from injury. A ligament can be injured, for example, by making a movement that would take a joint outside of its normal range. Soft tissues, in general, can be injured from a trauma or from repetitive movements. After an injury, whether a one-time occurrence or form multiple smaller events, the are will heal, and scar tissue can form. The presence of scar tissue can result in abnormal motor patterns and pain syndromes…read more»
