Chiropractic Care Benefits for Athletes

With the start of school and fall sports season, it’s a good time to think about your kids and getting them in tip top shape and ready to perform!

Most people think that chiropractic care mainly involves getting adjustments due to back and neck issues. However, for athletes, seeing a chiropractor is about dealing with injuries as much as it is about prevention. It is very beneficial to have a comprehensive exam to look at the function & mechanics of the body prior to starting a season of tough practices, training and games/matches.

It's important to address and examine sports-specific areas of the body to prevent injury, as kids grow. Also, those minor nagging injuries that just don't seem to go away, we need to listen closely to these to find the source. We need to find to what degree the injury truly is and take steps to correct that problem.

The goal is to get your student athlete to perform optimally and safely for a winning season!

Chiropractic Care Benefits for Athletes

  • Increasing range of motion – When the spine is out of alignment, muscles can spasm and cramp up, which can decrease your range of motion. Relieving misalignments

can help free up areas of tension, reduce pain, and improve mobility, thus improving your form.

  • Promote faster healing – Misalignments can slow down the healing process. Chiropractic care can speed up the recovery process by using various techniques that not only bring realignment to the spine, but techniques that help with muscle tension and spasms.

  • Noninvasive and drug-free treatment – Athletes need to be in the right mindset to get on the field, which is why it’s important to be clear-headed and free of drugs, including prescribed medications like muscle relaxants or opioids. Chiropractic care is one way to decrease pain from an injury without the need for drugs or surgery.

  • Improves balance and coordination, as well as energy levels – Playing sports day in and day out can leave anyone feeling drained. Along with improving balance and coordination, chiropractic visits can help players recharge.

Many athletes schedule routine visits with their chiropractor. The term “athlete” isn’t reserved for only those who play professional sports, it’s also for anyone who engages in any type of sport.
