Athletes have special needs and our office understands the specific nature and requirements needed to help you perform optimally.
Whether it’s during the season or in the off-season, Chiropractic care is becoming the competitive advantage that many athletes are now seeking. Athletes of all types, from the weekend warrior to the world-class athlete, utilize Chiropractic because it is a drug-free way to better health and performance. Chiropractic adjustments help ensure that the body functions as efficiently as possible, which can maximize healing and recovery from all types of injuries.
When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned, all piston’s are firing! This leads to better performance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.
The following is just a partial list of athletes who use Chiropractic care: Joe Montana, Emmit Smith, Ken Griffey, Jr., Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippin, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Dan Marino, Wayne Gretzky, Billy Jean King, John McEnroe and many more.
Why does Chiropractic Care Work?
The nervous system controls every activity in the body by sending and receiving nerve messages and is protected by the bones of the spine called vertebrae. When the spine is in its optimal structural position, the nerves are protected and optimal communication exists between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. The vertebra of the spine is susceptible to certain stresses and forces, which can cause them to lose their proper position.
These minor misalignments of the spine, which are known as “vertebral subluxations”, cause nerve interference and weaken the entire structure of the spine. Athletic training can often jar and misalign the spinal column, because the spine is at the center of the body. Impact to the legs, feet, head, shoulders and torso often radiates to the spine.
Doctors of Chiropractic detect and correct vertebral subluxations by physically adjusting the spine. This restores the spine and nervous system to a more optimal level of function, which maximizes the body’s performance and healing potential.
