Chiropractic care is one of many forms of non-invasive and drug-free health care that can help people find relief from a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Athletes can particularly benefit from chiropractic before and after practice and performance.
Most professional sports teams recognize the importance of chiropractic for their players and employ their own official team chiropractor.
Chiropractic optimizes the performance of a person’s musculoskeletal system, as well as their nervous system. Chiropractic can also help athletes to avoid injuries altogether or effectively manage the associated pain and healing following injury.
How adjustments help with athletic performance:
- Improved range of motion
- Reducing pain
- Less usage of medication
- Non-invasive treatment option
- Decrease recovery time
- Assist in injury repair/recovery (example: concussions)
