It’s been shown that high-impact sports can place the same amount of strain on the body as an auto collision. Some of these common injuries in many sports or physical activity can knock your spine out of alignment, causing stress on your pain-sensitive joints, muscles, nerves, discs and ligaments. In study after study, chiropractic care outperforms other medical options at reducing pain and restoring normal function.
Athletes getting routine adjustments may notice improved athletic performance, improved range of motion, better flexibility, increased blood flow, and may suffer from fewer injuries. Because spinal adjustments will reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, the healing time from minor injuries can be shortened, improving performance.
Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments. For high-impact athletes, it increases performance and flexibility and lowers the risk for injury; for low-impact athletes, routine adjustments can help relieve the strain that is being placed on the body. Chiropractic care offers a natural, non-invasive way to treat and prevent many different ailments.
Children’s Sports and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care isn’t just for pros and adults—children who are involved in any sport can gain huge benefits from ongoing care. Chiropractic is perfectly safe for children of any age and is an important tool for preventing long-term damage to your child’s growing body.
According for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2.6 million children aged 0 to 19 years old are treated for sports and recreational injuries. Of these injuries, musculoskeletal are by far the most common. Whether your child is in a contact sport like football or hockey or a non-contact sport like gymnastics or swimming, regular exams, adjustments and therapies are essential.
