The importance of Chiropractic Care in Sports

Chiropractic care is beneficial to those with an active lifestyle.  Whether you are a professional athlete or weekend warrior, regular visits to a licensed chiropractor can help maximize performance or prevent and treat injuries without reliance on drugs or surgeries.

Injuries are an unfortunate side effect of strenuous activity.  Non-existent warm-up routines, ineffective stretching and poor performance techniques can lead to pain that puts you on the sideline.  It is never a good idea to ignore this pain as it is your body’s way of indicating an injury has occurred.  If not treated properly or in a timely fashion, an injury can evolve into something more significant and even permanent.  Prescription drugs only dull the pain but do not address the injury and can be addictive, while surgery is invasive and has significant recovery times.  In many instances, chiropractic care at the onset of an injury can be effective in addressing the problem and preventing further damage.  The spine can be knocked out of alignment in common injuries, resulting in stress on joints, muscles, nerves and ligaments.  A chiropractor is trained in realigning the spine, which may alleviate this stress and the pain of these injuries with reduced recovery times.  Furthermore, having a properly aligned spine may even prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.  Proper spine alignment has also been linked to improvement in overall performance and can allow athletes to train more effectively.  Because of this, the use of chiropractic care has gained popularity among professional teams and athletic trainers.

Athletes and active individuals of all levels can benefit from chiropractic care.  If you are in the Clinton, MD area, make an appointment with Dr. Hayford Anane to help you stay off the sidelines and at peak performance.
