Because it is so effective at pain-based and pathological conditions, one of the most overlooked aspects of chiropractic care is that it enhances personal and athletic performance. Studies have shown that it:
Reduces inflammatory cytokines
Boosts your immune system
Enhances pulmonary function
Decreases mental and oxidative stress
Relieves muscle tension
Can naturally increase your energy level
Experts estimate that 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential. All National Football League (NFL) teams rely on chiropractors in varying capacities, and 77 percent of athletic trainers have referred players to a chiropractor for evaluation or treatment.
Top benefits athletes receive from chiropractic care:
Undo the punishment the body takes in sports
When the spine exhibits imperfections in movement and/or alignment, the resulting vertebral subluxations can create focal areas of irritation in the nervous system, which subsequently interfere with the optimum functions of all other systems. As a result, athletic performance suffers. When athletes are adjusted regularly, they will often attribute their success to regular chiropractic care.
Treatment of a variety of sports injuries
Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments. For high-impact athletes, it increases performance and flexibility and lowers the risk for injury; for low-impact athletes (golfers, tennis players, and bowlers), routine adjustments can help relieve the strain that is being placed on the body.
Non invasive/Drug Free Treatment
Chiropractic treatment helps athletes recover from injuries without the need for painkillers or invasive surgery. Not all athletes, however, are seeking chiropractic care after they suffer an injury. Some find that it helps improve not only their health, but their performance.
Injury Prevention/Performance Enhancement
Chiropractors treat the whole person and can tailor a comprehensive program aimed at injury avoidance. Numerous studies support the fact that chiropractic care helps athletes achieve an optimal level of performance while remaining injury free.
To Decrease Pain
The spine is an important physical structure that contains many pain-sensitive tissues: Most notably, joints, muscles, nerves, discs and ligaments. If there are any abnormal alignment patterns in the spinal column, this can place an abnormal amount of stress and strain on any one of these tissues.
