Chiropractic for Athletes

Chiropractic for Athletes

Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, chiropractic care can help keep you active and doing what you love. Below are just a few of the benefits that chiropractic care provide to the active patient:

Increasing range of motion:

Chiropractic adjustments and mobilizations restore maximum range of motion to your body’s joints. This includes the joints of your spine and extremities that are crucial in physical activity and sports. If you’ve got restricted and misaligned joints, then the surrounding muscles and tissues shorten and tighten, further limiting your range of motion. This means your body can’t move as it was designed to be, and you don’t perform as well.

Decreasing the time it takes to heal:

Quicker healing means a quicker return to your sport. Injuries are part of being an athlete, and everyone’s going to have some if they’re performing at a high level. Chiropractic care is a great way to give your body the best chance to heal on its own and get you back to your active life.

Addressing sore and inflamed tissues:

Chiropractic care isn’t all about adjusting and mobilizing the joints. At AccessHealth we also place a huge emphasis on addressing the soft tissue components of the complaint as well. This allows the joints to maintain their proper movement and keeps the tissues from complicating the complaint. As an athlete you’re going to have sore, tight, and inflamed muscles because of your sport. Chiropractic care can help keep your tissues healthy and functioning properly.

Don’t forgot, AccessHealth is the official chiropractic care provider of three gyms in the triangle. Dr. Jason also treats current professional and amateur athletes of many sports.
