Sports and Chiropractic go hand in hand.
In the realm of sports, athletes do what they can to their improve performance, and get a competitive edge. Sports chiropractic can help in this area in two ways:
- First, chiropractic care focuses on restoring normal ranges of motion to the joints of the spine, legs and arms. What this does is allow for a more natural and fluid motion that can improve the running gate to the basket ball shot, to the swing of the bat.
- Second, sports chiropractic helps improve the brain/body connection. It has been shown that chiropractic adjustments can improve how the brain interprets input from the body, and results in quicker, better responses and motion.
So you can imagine how these two effects combined can contribute to an elevated game.
Other studies suggest that sports chiropractic can also:
- improve golf drive distance
- increase leg/muscle strength
- improve kick speed
- improve jump height.
Besides that, chiropractic has been shown to be the most effective treatment for aches and pains in the neck and back, which is not uncommon for any sport.
