Weather you are an amateur athlete, a pro athlete, weekend warrior, or just enjoy water activities on the lake and staying active, injuries happen and they can take you out of the game. For years pro athletes like Jerry Rice of the San Francisco 49ers, Nolan Ryan, Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jubbar, and Carl Lewis all have utilized chiropractic care because of their sport and conditioning, they realize the importance of their health and ability to perform.
There are good reasons why an athlete should seek a sports chiropractor for the treatment and rehabilitation of a sports injury. Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Many players can be sidelined for various injuries that could have been avoided. Others sit it out on the bench because their injury does not respond to ordinary treatment. Still, some athletes are playing, but at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not balance.
Most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops, and positioning that places an unusual amount of strain on the back and structural system. After time, musculoskeletal complaints arise from injuries sustained performing such activities. Understanding the biomechanical principles involved with movement and everyday activities helps to prevent injury and restore functional integrity and stability through good posture, proper biomechanics, and proper rehabilitation.
As a Doctor of Chiropractic, there is special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves to determine the extent of an injury and avoid further time out of the game or on the bench. Chiropractic is a natural health care method that stresses the importance of keeping all the systems of the body functioning efficiently so the individual enjoys peak performance, a minimum injury risk, and fast recuperative strength, a better neuromuscular functioning system.
