Vero Beach Chiropractic - Sports Injury Care
Studies show that a majority of athletes depend on chiropractic care to boost performance and overcome sports injuries. Whether its football teams, golfers, or baseball players, they all visit a chiropractor from time to time especially when one has an injury. In fact, a number of sports clubs now have full-time chiropractors whose duty is to provide ongoing care to players in a bid to boost their performance levels.
And it works brilliantly! Players typically benefit in four ways;
- Chiropractic care cools off players and improves performance
It has been shown that high impact sports (wrestling, football, hockey, and the rest) can place the same amount of strain on the body as an auto collision. Such sports also result in several knocks. Chiropractic care can help relieve some of that strain and even enhance player performance. Athletes who get routine adjustments notice increased blood flow, improved flexibility, and better range of motion resulting in better performance.
- The approach treats a variety of sports injuries
In addition to cooling you off and improving your performance, chiropractic care is effective in relieving pain and treating a range of sports injuries. These include headaches, shoulder pain, and ankle injuries. Spinal manipulation results in near immediate relief for headaches originating from the back while shoulder and ankle manipulation both relieve pain and can improve joint function.
- It’s a non-invasive, drug-free solution
Many sports injuries necessitate lengthy layoffs and subject athletes to endless doses of painkillers. In worst case scenarios, athletes may even be forced to undergo surgery, ruling them out of the game for weeks or even months. The four common chiropractic techniques (Functional Dry Needling, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, the Active Release Technique, and the Gaston Technique) have been proven to treat a wide range of injuries without the need for medical drugs or surgery.
- It aids in injury prevention
Finally, athletes who receive regular chiropractic care have fewer injuries compared to those who don’t. That’s because chiropractors who specialize in caring for athletes don’t just treat injuries; they also prepare the body to avoid it. Studies have found that adjusted athletes coordinate better, react faster, and execute finer movements with better precision and accuracy. The result - a more aware athlete capable of “foreseeing” and avoiding injury.
