The 2 Reasons Athletes Need Chiropractic

Are you an athlete? Do you participate in organized sports of any kind? If you answered yest to either question then there are 2 main components to your sports related activities.

1)Training/Practice

2)Competition/Games

If you have seen one of my videos or read other posts then you may have seen that there are 2 major ways peoples spines get out of alignment and thus interfere with the nervous system.

 

The first is acute injuries. If you have participated in sports for any length of time you now that injuries are just part of the game. Acute injuries respond well to chiropractic care because they prevent injured soft tissues from getting too hypertonic and thus preventing normal motion in the joints of the back and neck.

 

The second is repetitive stress injuries, which are caused by repeated movements that eventually lead to injury in the soft tissues. Any chronic pain or tightness is a good sign that some sort of imbalance is present and should be addressed.

 

Because both aspects of causing a subluxation in the spine are frequently present in sports, athletes need routine chiropractic care to function at their best. That is the reason almost all pro sports teams employ a chiropractor or have a team doctor to consult with upon injury.

 

If you play sports, chiropractic is a wise investment in your game.
