Many amateur and professional athletes use chiropractic treatment, active release therapy and massage to improve performance and as part of their overall health care program. Chiropractic adjustments improve alignment, biomechanical function and overall conditioning. Athletic performance can be enhanced by treatments that improve muscle and joint conditioning, which can reduce wear and tear in the long run as well. Since athletes often perform the same movements on a continuous basis, they are more prone to strains and sprains which can be helped with our health therapies.
A regiment of health therapy treatments can help prevent injuries as muscles and ligaments stay limber. Improved motion and flexibility helps muscles perform better. These therapies may also speed the healing time of injuries. This is why it is most important to see your sports doctor immediately after the injury has occurred and take the right steps from the beginning. Ignoring injuries will mean a longer healing process and increases the likelihood that injury becomes more severe or chronic in the future.
Many athletes choose to continue treatment after the injuries have healed in order to improve their performance. We can design a treatment plan with the athlete’s goals in mind, to improve their condition and maximize performance potential. We can also work in conjunction with your other health care professionals to ensure the best outcome.
