Most of us think of chiropractic care in terms of treating injuries. And yes, your chiropractor is the first person you should call if you experience a new pain or suspect an injury. We can often help patients heal more efficiently by treating the root cause of the injury, while sometimes avoiding the need for expensive and painful surgeries.
And with regard to injuries, pain management is critical. We want to help you avoid the need for pharmaceutical pain relief options, which can carry so many dangerous side effects and the potential for addiction.
But for athletes, the benefits of chiropractic care go far beyond injury management. Ongoing chiropractic adjustments remove problems within the nervous system that can negatively impact your form and performance. Proper posture and form reduce your likelihood of sustaining an injury and will also increase your ability to perform at optimal levels.
Fine tuning the nervous system means that communication between body parts becomes more efficient, enhancing your reflexes and helping your body to work harder during athletic events.
As famous football player Tom Brady once explained, “Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”
Maybe you’re no Tom Brady, but your performance and injury prevention are still important to you. Call us to discuss routine chiropractic maintenance, and we’ll help you reach your own full potential.
