Chiropractic Care Helps Athletes of Any Age

Did you know that an estimated 90% of all world-class athletes regularly use chiropractic care? In fact, all teams in the National Football League (NFL) have on-staff chiropractors to care for players. Why? Chiropractic care provides a number of benefits for athletes of all ages. Just a few of those benefits include preventing injuries, better and faster healing of injuries that do happen and boosting their performance. Let's look at little deeper at chiropractic benefits for athletes:

1. Fewer Injuries - Misalignments in the spine and other joints cause stress in the body. These misalignments interfere with the proper function of the impacted areas and can shift the athlete's balance, leading to injuries. By keeping the spine and other joints (knees and shoulders, etc) in proper alignment, it reduces the stress on the body and reduces the chance of injury.

2. Recover Faster - When an athlete does experience an injury, chiropractic helps them recover and heal faster. Chiropractic care removes interference in the communication between the brain and the body, allowing the nervous system to better communicate with the other body systems required to heal the injury. By helping the body and brain communicate more efficiently, chiropractic care reduces the time required to heal injuries.

3. Train More Effectively - In a recent study, 100% of regular runners who experience joint pain were able to either maintain or even increase their training mileage after beginning regular chiropractic care. Keeping the body in proper alignment from the spine through the extremities and other joints helps ensure proper function of the entire musculoskeletal system. A body in alignment functions at its best, resulting in more effective training.

4. Better Performance - Misalignments in the spine impact proper function of all other systems in the body. When any major system in the body isn't working optimally, an athlete's performance is compromised. Regular chiropractic adjustments keep the spine free of misalignments and allows every system in the body to work properly. A body with optimal function in all systems performs better, whether they're playing in the Little League or the Big Leagues.
