Athletes put a huge physical toll on their bodies every day. Even when you are not in a competition, the hours of training stress your joints. Proper rest and recovery are critical to improving or maintaining your current athletic level. However, you may have found that you do not see the results that you expect. Sometimes these issues can be related to problems that can be resolved or improved with some help from your chiropractor. If you are an athlete, chiropractic care should be a regular part of your training regimen. If you want the help of an experienced team of chiropractors that are specifically focused on the needs of athletes, contact USA Sports Medicine today for your consultation.
There are several areas that we think we can help athletes in their endeavors for their next great adventure.
The fantastic amount of strain and physical stress that athletes place on their bodies is extraordinary. Many athletes have learned that if they are not feeling the pain of a brutal workout in their joints the next day, they didn’t work hard enough. However, nobody should be feeling regular and consistent discomfort in their joints. Chiropractic care can help to relieve this and get you feeling and performing better.
Athletes are at a much higher risk of injury than other members of our communities. If you have suffered an injury, consider adding chiropractic care to your treatment regimen. At USA Sports Medicine, we can often help to reduce your healing time when combined with other therapeutic measures.
Chiropractic care offers some significant benefits to our patients. Invasive treatments create a second wound that you have to heal. Chiropractic care helps to ensure that joints are properly aligned and functioning correctly. Additionally, with increased drug testing, and an ever-expanding list of banned substances, chiropractic care does not use drugs or chemical substances. This means that you can utilize chiropractic care without the fear of being disqualified because you were not sure what chemicals were in your medications.
Many people often feel like they only need to see a chiropractor when things have gone wrong. Chiropractors can usually help you avoid an injury in the first place. Misaligned joints can fatigue the surrounding muscles more quickly and make you more susceptible to injury.
One of the main areas of focus for chiropractic care is the manipulation of the spine. All of the nerves in your body have to travel through the spinal column. When your spine is out of alignment, it can often pinch or restrict your nerves from functioning properly. The typical response your body produces to not properly working is a pain.
When your spine is aligned correctly, it allows the nerves to pass all of the information freely and reduces pain and discomfort that you may have been feeling. It also allows your body to function at peak performance.
In addition to ensuring that the joints are correctly aligned, chiropractors also carefully massage all of the joints. This means that you get the benefits of relaxing while increasing blood flow to your joints. The higher volume of blood improves your ability to recover and strengthen the surrounding tissue.
If you are an athlete that feels like any of these points would be a benefit for you, call USA Sports Medicine today to schedule a consultation. We can work with you to identify the areas you would like to improve and develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.
