Why Chiropractic Care Is Beneficial for Athletes with Sports Injuries

Written By Breen Chiropractic Clinic, PC on November 19, 2018

Chiropractic care has long been lauded in the world of sports medicine. 

In fact, the U.S. Olympics teams have their own chiropractic care team to help prevent — and treat — injuries for these world-class athletes.

In the U.S. military, where men and women have to stay in top shape to perform their duties, the U.S. government offers chiropractic care to our men and women in uniform.

So, whether you’re a weekend warrior or an athlete by trade, chiropractic care can help keep you in top shape — and at the top of your game.

Chiropractic to Treat Sports Injuries

Chiropractic manipulation seeks to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and increase joint function. If you’re suffering from tendonitis, strains, sprains, or spine and neck pain, chiropractic can help.

Your chiropractor will examine your sports injuries, run any necessary diagnostics, then create a care plan that’s individualized for your specific injury.

He has a number of complementary treatments at his disposal to help reduce pain and encourage recovery, including massage, physical therapy, and even acupuncture.

Chiropractic to Prevent Sports Injuries

Because chiropractic care involves moving the bones and ligaments of the spinal process into proper position, chiropractic treatments can help keep your nerves and muscles functioning at their optimal level.

This can help you maintain flexibility, improve your range of motion, and increase stability for better balance and enhanced performance.

Additionally, that improved flexibility can help prevent strains, sprains, and other injuries and increase your functional ability.
