All Athletes Need a Chiropractor – Not Just for Injuries

As you pursue peak physical performance, you need that edge.  An edge that will push you above the competition so you can stand out and make an impact.  Rigorous training and an awesome diet are essential, but we have a little secret that can help push you just a bit further.

Chiropractic care isn’t just for cracking backs.  An adjustment ensures that all of your joints are working together, and that you’re functioning optimally to avoid injury and to enhance performance.

Optimal Spinal Alignment for the Nervous System

Your nervous system runs throughout your entire body.  But it all comes back to the central nervous system that travels through the spine and into the brain.  It’s why a major back injury can leave you paralyzed – that nervous system isn’t communicating with the rest of the body.

But you don’t have to break your back to damage your nerves.  Even the slightest pressure on your nervous system can be enough to cause issues in the body – and not all of them are painful.  Sometimes it’s numbness and tingling, but often it’s merely weakness.  Ensuring those nerves aren’t pinched means your muscles are strong and ready.

Increased Range of Motion

Flexibility is the only way to prevent injury and to optimize performance.  Athletes who are limber and flexible invariably perform better than those who do not.  Daily stretching and muscle use are great to stay flexible and increase the range of motion, but a stuck joint will prevent movement.

Regular visits to your local chiropractor will keep those joints in place, and help to improve agility, coordination, and capabilities.

Faster Recovery and Injury Prevention

Injuries are going to happen.  Sometimes they can be devastating and end the athlete’s career; other times they can be minor and with a little rest or rehab you can be back on top of your game.

The difference can often mean whether or not the spine and other joints were well maintained or not.  That flexibility keeps you loose and limber.  Those abilities can help to reduce the overall impact of an injury.  Chiropractic care isn’t a cure-all and sure-fire way to prevent injuries, but it does often reduce the severity of those athletic injuries.

Holistic Wellness Without the Drugs

Medication and procedures are common in western medicine.  And it’s because they’re fast and effective.  But there are many studies out there that show long-term they might not be the best option for the athlete that wants to stay on top of his or her game for decades to come.

Focusing on holistic treatment without invasive procedures or dangerous drugs is what chiropractic care is all about.  Adjustments can help relieve stress, reduce tension, promote a better mental state, and ultimately keep the body functioning for many years to come.

Customized Adjustments for Your Body

This isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of treatment.  A chiropractor doesn’t just work on backs (although with dozens of joints in the back and neck, there’s often work that needs to be done in that area).  Instead, Dr. Durbin will look over your overall performance.  Finding where the pain is, and discovering the source (if pain is an issue) means adjusting what you need adjusted.

Aligning your athletic goals with your regular chiropractor visits, will ensure that you are being treated properly.
