Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Traverse City Athletes Improve with Chiropractic Care

chiropractic care for athletes

Athletes are always looking for an edge to take their performances to another level. No matter what sport you play, the competition is always getting bigger, faster and stronger which means you have to continually improve in order to keep up. Some athletes turn to dishonest methods like performance enhancing drugs to get ahead, but most look to nutrition, enhanced training concepts and similar methods to get better. One way Traverse City athletes can improve is through chiropractic care.

Enhanced Injury Treatment

Injuries are an unfortunate part of all sports, and recovering from injuries quickly and completely is critical. Chiropractic care helps athletes recover from injuries the same way it can help an auto accident victim recover from injuries. Spinal adjustments can align your vertebrae so your tendons and muscles heal correctly. If you’re experiencing pain from a past injury, chiropractic care can get to the root of the injury and correct the problem so your symptoms lessen or disappear.

Improved Performance

Traverse City athletes can also expect improved overall performance with regular chiropractic care. High-impact athletes can minimize their risk of injury and reduce pain, and low-impact athletes can relieve much of the strain placed on the body while playing their sport. This is true for sports like golf, bowling, and tennis.

With improved strength, balance, stability, flexibility and range of motion, it stands to reason that athletes will notice improved performance with regular chiropractic treatment. For athletes that play through longer seasons or play year-round, the improvement will be noticed as competitors start feeling fatigued and suffering minor injuries. The ability to “stay fresh” from the beginning of the season until the end provides a tremendous advantage to most athletes.

How Chiropractic Helps

Whether it’s to enhance performance or help heal an injury, chiropractic helps Traverse City athletes by taking pressure off nerves in the spinal column. When your spinal vertebrae are misaligned, the impulses sent from your brain to parts of your body through your spine may not be as clear as they should be. When these impulses are restricted, your body is not operating at full capacity, and your athletic performance can suffer. If you are truly looking for an edge and want to take your performance to the next level, try chiropractic treatment and see if it helps. Once the pathways between your brain and muscles, heart and lungs are clear, you’ll be amazed at what you can do.
