Athletes and Chiropractic Care
Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, chiropractic care can help you not only heal from injuries faster, but also improve your performance on the field.
There are two types of athletes who come in to a chiropractic office. The first is the recent or “acute” trauma, which includes injuries in a game or practice. While the second is for relative small or “micro” traumas which includes; the constant motion of throwing a baseball, swinging a golf club, or swinging a tennis racquet.
One of the major problems in our society is that we have been conditioned to believe that the way to get someone better from an injury is to treat their symptoms. The problem with that thought process is too many times the underlying cause is never treated. We see it all the time in professional athletics; a star player comes back from and injury, pain free, then goes out the next day and gets a season or even career ending injury because the body never healed, and the symptoms were covered up. Only 8-12 percent of the nerves in the body can sense pain. So basing your health on symptoms, does not work. We should be basing our health on how we are functioning, not how we are feeling.
What we do at True Vine Chiropractic is get to the cause of the injury. We do this by looking at the structure of the spine, because know that structure dictates function. The spine protects the spinal cord and spinal nerves, which send and receive messages from the brain to the body and back up the brain. If the bones in the spine misalign, or what we can a “subluxation,” the message from the brain will be blocked and the body will start to function at a lower level, leaving the body more susceptible to injuries if left uncorrected.
Our goal for all of our athletes is to get their body functioning at its best. This will cause the body heal faster while also performing better. A study done by the New Zealand School of Chiropractic found that athletes under chiropractic care have 14.8% faster reflexes! Who wouldn’t want that? That is just one of the many benefits of being under specific scientific chiropractic care. Don’t wait for an injury to arise before getting checked, make an appointment today to see how we can help.
