Sports: How Chiropractic Care Helps

sports_injuriesWhether you are a professional athlete, a weekend competitor or someone who enjoys a variety of recreational activities, sports-related injuries can sideline the fun.

We can help you keep your spine in the best possible shape to guard against injuries. Should you develop an injury that affects your spine, we can assist you with your recovery process.

Preventing Injuries

We recommend proper conditioning for the sport in which you participate to decrease your chances of injury. Keeping your muscles strong helps keep your joints and your spine healthy.

The lumbar area is the most commonly injured part of the spine. Regular chiropractic care can monitor and strengthen the area to help avoid problems. This would include spinal adjustments, exercise suggestions, nutritional advice and other recommendations tailored to your specific needs.

Injured Areas Can Affect Your Spine

One thing to keep in mind is that an injury to an arm or leg can have an effect on your spine as you move differently to compensate for the injury. Therefore, even injuries that do not directly affect the spine can still have an effect upon it. Let us help you maintain your spine as you heal elsewhere.

Healing Injuries

When your spine and nervous system are working properly, injuries heal better and feel better. Healthy spinal nerves control bodily functions that help keep circulation optimal, and minimize inflammation and pain.
