Why is it important for an athlete to receive Chiropractic care?

The nervous system controls and regulates all functions of the body including the muscles, organs, and all of its systems. In order for an athlete to perform their best, it is importantthat they have an optimally functioning nervous system.

What are the benefits of Chiropractic care for an athlete?

A healthy spine and nervous system allows for better performance, endurance, and healing of the athlete. The nervous system coordinates communication between your brain and muscles, allowing the athlete to jump higher, lift heavier, run faster, breathe better and have more stability and balance than they would otherwise. Chiropractic care also helps with recovery by reducing the inflammatory processes that cause pain and slow down performance and endurance.

How often should an athlete be given a Chiropractic adjustment?

This depends on the level of activity the athlete currently has and would like to continue to have. The first step is to be evaluated by a Chiropractor. They will determine a care plan to fit your individual needs for both resolution of health concerns and supportive/preventative care.
