Many high impact or repetitive sports cause injuries that can stick around and become bothersome any time you are playing your sport. When the body is subjected to a impact, the vertebrae and soft tissues are compromised. Sports that require repetitive twisting and bending can also lead to damage. Activities such as golf, tennis, running or gymnastics can lead to injuries to the soft tissues around the spine such as muscle, ligaments, tendons and discs from repeated jarring causing wear and tear.
Chiropractic Care may help restore proper alignment with a series of adjustments, soft tissue work and other modalities such as hot or cold compresses, infrared light therapy and electrical muscle stimulation. Doctors trained in sports chiropractic have specific training in treating injuries from sports and athletics to help improve performance.
The reason why U.S. Olympic Teams, professional sports teams and professional athletes rely on regular chiropractic care is because it works! Chiropractic treatment speeds up recovery from injury, increases performance and helps to prevent future problems. Chiropractic care allows athletes and active individuals to return to optimal performance by restoring biomechanical and muscular function. Athletes in sports such as football, soccer, basketball, runners, bowlers and skiers have found that chiropractors are able to give them an edge in their competitions.
