Chiropractic Woodbury MN Benefits For Athletes

Most athletes in Woodbury MN put their bodies through rigorous workouts and training. Because of this, it is important that athletes keep their bodies healthy and strong so they do not injure themselves. According to The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation, a study showed that after 12 weeks of chiropractic care, 30% of athletes showed increased athletic performance when tested on balance, reaction time, and agility.

How we can help in Woodbury MN

Chiropractic care is beneficial to athletes in increasing their range of motion, improving blood flow and posture, and quickening recovery after an intense sporting event or workout. Especially if athletes are involved in more body- stressing sports or work-outs such as wrestling, football, or hockey, even athletes involved in endurance sports, such as runners, can also benefit from chiropractic care. It is important to make sure their spine is kept aligned.

Misalignments of the spine can cause muscle soreness, headaches, less flexibility, tendonitis, joint pain and more. All these can occur when there is not enough flexibility in the spinal column. By clearing the misalignments, chiropractors are able to increase the mobility of the spine and one's range of motion, thus decreasing the chances for injury or lessening the chances to become injured in the first place.

Injured athletes who continue to play do so at less than peak efficiency because their structural system is not balanced. More and more, coaches and athletes are turning away from pain-killing drugs, because they recognize that such drugs just mask the pain, and do not address the cause of the pain. Such a strategy often worsens the injury, possibly making full recovery impossible.

Many athletes are side-lined with injuries that could have been avoided, or because their injuries did not respond to traditional medical care. It is important not to just begin seeing a chiropractor after an injury, but to incorporate chiropractic care into an athlete's usual routine in order to avoid injuries to one's body. If received prior to the sports activities, chiropractic care keeps the body at its best functioning at peak efficiency helping eliminate imbalance and preventing injury. In the case of an injury, chiropractic care can help the athlete recuperate quicker.

Chiropractic manipulation, therapeutic exercise, massage and nutritional support are part of patient care for injuries such as ankle sprains, muscles strain, tendonitis, bursitis of the shoulder, and joint problems involving the elbow, wrist, hand, hip and knee can also be treated very effectively with chiropractic care.

If you are an athlete with joint and muscle pain or just want to avoid potential injuries, talk to your chiropractor for more information about the benefits of chiropractic care.
