If you play sports you know that any advantage you can get over your opponent can be beneficial. Your body is vital equipment no matter the sport of choice. Getting it working in proper alignment can not only make you feel better, it can boost your performance and up your game.
Chiropractic can increase mobility and range of motion as well as increase the speed of healing if you happen to sustain an injury. A recent study was done on a group of 18 athletes in Brazil who compete in Judo. 1/2 of the participants received chiropractic adjustments while the other half did not. Both maintained the same training schedule and diet. When grip strength was measured those who did receive adjustments showed much better results. With a strength increase on average of 15% for those in the chiropractic group. It only increased 4% for the others.
Why would this be?
Chiropractic treatment works to restore nervous system functionality and that leads to increased muscle strength.
Chiropractic can be used to decrease pain, enhance performance, help prevent injury, and is a noninvasive and drug-free form of natural treatment. It can essentially help to un-do what life throws at us and allow our bodies to heal without the use of potentially dangerous medications.
One of the foremost causes of injury during sports is that your body is out of alignment making it asymmetrical. when you are off balance, you move weirdly and it can cause wear and tear on the body that is abnormal.
The most common injuries include:
Elbow and hand strains
All can be helped through a combination of chiropractic, foam rolling and trigger point therapy and massage. If you are in the Fort Myers, Florida area and looking for an amazing sports chiropractor come visit the office of Dr. Jason Kaster, D.C.
