Sports & Chiropractic

Chiropractic care plays a key role in the lives of many of the worlds elite athletes.

 

Just as a Formula 1 race car requires constant tinkering and fine-tuning before every race, many high performance sports people use chiropractic care as part of their pre-event fine –tuning process. Subtle adjustments to the spine and extremities ensure not only optimal muscle and joint function, but also optimise the function of the body system that controls and co-ordinates the whole performance – the nervous system.

 

Many athletes notice a dramatic difference in their muscle strength, their balance, and their coordination following an adjustment.

Obviously, elite level sports put enormous stresses on the bodies of athletes, but although weekend athletes may not be as highly trained, their bodies are subjected to just the same stressors as their more elite counterparts.

 

Sports and regular training require lots of repetition, and any asymmetries or muscle imbalances in the body are reinforced by that repetition. Gradually the asymmetry worsens and often the body will set up other compensation patterns to offset any imbalance, leading to other unexplained injuries.

It is critical for any sportsperson – whether elite or a weekender- to have a regular re-balance through chiropractic adjustments.

 

If you are regularly involved in sports or physical training, it is even more important for you to take a pro-active approach to preventative chiropractic care.
