Why Athletes Visit Us for a Chiropractic Treatment

Posted on: March 16, 2018

Many athletes visit our office for chiropractic treatment. For anyone who needs to perform their very best physically, even if they are not an athlete, our treatments can be incredibly effective for ensuring that our patients have a full range of motion and no restrictions on their mobility. This is incredibly important for athletes but is also very important for anyone who wants to be able to remain active and play with their kids or simply enjoying regular walks and exercising with friends.

Why athletes benefit from chiropractic care

With punishing exercise routines and regular practices, athletes demand a lot from their body. Unfortunately, the body does not always respond positively to this punishment and it is possible for the spine to be moved out of alignment during exercise routines or playing a game. When this happens, it is necessary to bring the vertebrae back into alignment to alleviate back pain, discomfort or other health problems. We can do this using a gentle chiropractic treatment. Once the treatment is over, many athletes report feeling better, looser and able to get back in the game. However, if the damage is more severe, it may take several treatments to get back to normal.

Mobility is a concern for everyone

Many of the people who visit us do so because they are concerned about a lack of mobility that is restricting their activities. Again, this extends to far more people than just athletes. Even adults who regularly frequent the gym or people who like to take walks with their friends sometimes realize that they feel stiff, their joints are not as loose or they experience back pain when doing these normal activities. This is not a sign that the activities need to stop.

Getting regular exercise is incredibly healthy and important for the body so instead of reducing those activities it is best to visit our office for chiropractic treatment. By completing an adjustment, we may be able to reduce the discomfort and help the patient to get back out there. Sometimes, we also need to recommend physical therapy to strengthen key muscles so that injuries can be prevented. These are all things we can discuss after completing a consultation.

Chiropractic care is noninvasive

Keep in mind that chiropractic treatments are noninvasive and do not involve the use of prescription drugs. This is an important point to make because, for anyone who is active, as an athlete or as someone who simply likes to enjoy a lot of activities, it is important to seek out treatments that are not going to get in the way. Ours will not. Chiropractic treatments are fast, efficient and there is no recovery time afterward so it is possible to feel better and remain active afterward.

Safe no matter how old you are

We treat people of all ages, including children and the elderly. Since this is a noninvasive treatment, we have found that even people with other health concerns can benefit from chiropractic care.
