People everywhere enjoy sports and athletic activities every day.
Playing sports at any official level – or even just for fun in your neighborhood – provides much more than just exercise. Sports are a rewarding endeavor that teach the values of teamwork, the importance of physical condition and the promoting of healthy habits.
One common risk to playing sports though, is the potential for injuries to occur.
Some of the most common sports-related injuries are sprains, pulled muscles, and joint strain. The risk for injury increases as we age because our bodies lose rigidity – so even that game of backyard football or basketball with your family can present the potential for aches and pains.
But the good news is that chiropractic care can help prevent some injuries before they happen.
Chiropractic treatment aims to keep your spine in proper alignment. This allows your whole body to function more smoothly and you will move better and feel stronger. You will also have a better range of motion and more flexibility. This reduces the risk of injury because of the proper movement and pliability of your body.
If any pain or injury do occur, chiropractic care can help treat it holistically.
If you play sports or just have an active lifestyle (going to the gym, biking, jogging, etc.) you will know if something is painful or feels “off.” Chiropractic care treats a wide range of musculoskeletal issues to keep your body in peak form. This type of care adjusts your body mechanics, so you are at an overall stable condition. When your body is aligned and working correctly, discomfort is lessened, and sports-related injuries are often prevented.
While sports injuries are always unique to the individual, your chiropractor can help alleviate and correct many issues due to injury. For more information or questions on treating or preventing sports injuries with chiropractic care, visit our website or call 815-756-8691.
