How Chiropractic Improves Sports Performance
As sports chiropractors, we check the whole body to ensure it is in the correct alignment. To get the spine back to proper alignment, we perform joint manipulation. To manipulate joints, our doctors use either their hands or special instruments.
Unlike surgery, chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and don’t cause any discomfort. As a drug-free treatment, spinal manipulation doesn’t cause any side effects. Our patients often feel relief from their symptoms (back pain, golfer’s elbow, etc.) after their first visit to a chiropractor!
Correct joint alignment is crucial to maintaining an ideal nerve supply to the muscles and surrounding areas. This translates to ideal muscle activation and ideal joint motion. Better motion and muscle activation contribute to improved speed or power. As a result, athletes can perform at peak levels, and their bodies can resist sport-related injury.
