Whether your dream is to compete in the Olympics or you’re exercising just to enhance your health, a balanced structural system is imperative before embarking on you path. Our bodies need to function optimally in order to exercise or compete without discomfort, pain or injury.

Chiropractic care plays a role in preventing and managing injuries, as well as performance enhancement. Many notable athletes, like Babe Ruth and Nolan Ryan Muhammad Ali have utilized chiropractic care.

The focus is on function. Chiropractors have a vast knowledge of how the musculoskeletal and nervous system works, and can analyze when an individual’s body is not functioning optimally, and when body biomechanics are incorrect or inefficient which may predispose an individual to injury.

The Role of Chiropractic in Prevention:

Pre-existing misalignments & imbalances of the spine, pelvis, extremities, and muscles/ligaments can predispose you to injury or less than optimal performance. For example a misaligned or twisted pelvis, short leg or flat feet may not only affect comfort and performance, but may also lead to injury. Your chiropractor will locate any imbalances and correct them in order to achieve optimal function. This in turn will improve performance, reduce the risk of injury, and enhance enjoyment.

Taking Care of Injuries

The primary cause of pain is damage to muscles, joints and nerves. Pain is a primary barrier to physical exertion; therefore it is important to take care of injuries that prevent you from enjoying physical activity.

Chiropractic plays an important role in the treatment and management of injuries for people of all ages. From overuse injuries such as tendonitis, to acute injuries such as muscle strains – chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat such injuries effectively, so you can get back to enjoying what you love.

For people of all ages, a chiropractic evaluation is important to ensure your body is balanced and functioning efficiently, which will reduce the risk of injury, and allow for a greater level of performance and enjoyment.
