Sports Related Injuries
An athlete competing at maximum health has the greatest ability to perform at their best. Athletes put physical demands on their body jumping, running, falling and tackling. These demands may present themselves as sprains, strains, chronic injuries and negatively affect performance. Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams, have retained sports chiropractors to provide care.
The sports chiropractor can enhance an athlete’s recovery from injury and prevent future injury. In the competitive sports world, these athletes realize that if spinal or extremity problems exist, their performance will be compromised. The goal for each patient is to get him/her in peak performance to produce a winning result.
Professional, amateur and weekend athletes seek out Sports Chiropractors for many reasons:
- Quicker recovery after training/games
- Prevention of injury
- Peak performance
- Better balance
Pain killing drugs are not always the answer. They merely cover up the symptoms allowing the athlete to perform making the injury more serious. Probably more than any other health profession, a Chiropractor’s approach to health closely relates to the needs of the sports participant.
If you or a loved one suffers from any kind of sports related injury, please consider the fact that there is a lot of research that supports Chiropractic Care. Why not make chiropractic care part of your sports training regiment!
