Many athletes benefit from chiropractic care because it greatly reduces muscle, joint and nerve pain. Athletes rely on their bodies to do their job and often complain of tight hamstrings, sore shoulders, and stiff joints. As chiropractic care continues to gain acceptance, many professional sports teams have chiropractors on staff. At Integrated Health Solutions, many of our patients have sports-related injuries, like tennis elbow and rotator cuff tear, and we create a detailed plan of action that includes specific treatments and exercises to help them become pain-free.
Chiropractic Care Improves Athletic Performance
The goal of chiropractic care is to get to the root of the pain and eliminate it with treatment and exercise. After an osteopathic manipulative treatment, many patients feel more mobile with less pain when they move their limbs. The staff at Integrated Health Solutions understands how important it is for athletes to be flexible and strong. They work with all their patients to ensure their musculoskeletal system is in good working order.
Who Should Visit a Chiropractor?
All doctors know that the brain communicates with the entire body through the nervous system and when you have what we call a subluxation – a medical term for misalignment of the bones – the body will start to experience symptoms. If you are experiencing any symptoms or just want to make sure that you are properly aligned then you should have a thorough chiropractic examination to rule out any subluxations. Most people think to get their teeth checked or their eyes checked but will neglect their spines, which house their entire nervous system and will dictate how functional you will be. We can live without our eyesight and our teeth but cannot live with our nervous system. Call today for a checkup.
Chiropractors’ main focus is making sure that the central nervous system is in good working order. To achieve this outcome, chiropractors align the spine to allow the central nervous system to function correctly. If you are a runner and have twisted your knee, it is sound advice to see a chiropractor. The chiropractor will check your spine and will then adjust your knee joint to reduce the pain and inflammation.
The patients at Integrated Health Solutions come to see us to prevent injury as well. They see us before they begin working out for the half marathon or start practice for high school football. We make sure their spine, and their joints are functioning correctly, which makes them less susceptible to injury.
