CIf you’re an athlete, Dr. Jason Cheshire at Pompano Beach Chiropractic Clinic in Pompano Beach, FL, provides sports medicine to help you achieve your performance and recovery goals.
4 Reasons to Visit a Chiropractor for Sports Medicine
No matter your sport of choice or whether you play professionally or for fun, your performance is important. And when you get injured, you want to heal as quickly and as naturally as possible. Below, Dr. Jason and the team at Pompano Beach Chiropractic Clinic in Pompano Beach, FL, explain how a chiropractor can help you achieve peak performance and optimal healing.
1. Correction of Structural Issues
You may not realize it yet, but if you aren’t performing quite as well as you want, the issue might not be that you need to train harder. Issues like misalignment, tension, strain, and disc problems in the musculoskeletal system might be to blame. The good news is that these issues can be corrected through adjustments and manipulation provided by your sports chiropractor.
2. Improve Balance, Flexibility, and Range of Motion
When there is an issue in your musculoskeletal system, such as tension or misalignment, it can throw your entire body off kilter. For athletes, this means affecting their balance, flexibility, and how well they can move. Through adjustments, soft tissue techniques, therapeutic exercises, and more, chiropractors can help you get in optimal shape.
3. Natural Pain Relief
Whether you’re overtrained or have been injured during a competition, the pain can keep you on the sidelines. Instead of resigning yourself to medication and more invasive techniques, a chiropractor can help you find natural pain relief. The way they do this is by first assessing your entire musculoskeletal system and finding anything that might be the cause of or contributing to your pain. After detecting the root cause of your pain and any other factors, they make a plan to fix it. By getting to the root of the problem, there is nothing left to cause pain.
4. Faster Recovery From Injuries
Addressing the root provides another major benefit: it helps you recover more quickly. Chiropractors utilize a variety of hard and soft tissue techniques that address the current issue, promote better blood flow, and send healing nutrients to the injured site. This results in faster recovery and – often – a reduced likelihood of experiencing the same issue again. And you don't have to sustain an injury from a sports accident to enjoy these benefits. Many athletes see chiropractors for recovery from training and workouts.
