Sports medicine is a rapidly growing field that specializes in helping athletes improve their performance, address existing sports related injuries, and prevent future injuries. It is no wonder that the Players Association of the National Football League and US Olympic Team recognizes the benefits of chiropractic sports medicine and thus made it part of their overall medical program. Here at Chirofit, we proudly offer chiropractic sports medicine services to our clients throughout Cedar Park, Leander, and the surrounding areas.
Sports medicine is not just for elite athletes; it is effective for people of all fitness levels to improve their athletic abilities and overall health. Whether you play sports on a regular basis or are simply looking to get more out of your general fitness efforts, chiropractic sports medicine can help you achieve your goals while preventing sports injuries.
How Sports Medicine Works
In order for your body to function at its optimal level when you work out, it needs to be in proper alignment, and a specially trained sports chiropractor can help you achieve that. Your spine forms the foundation for the rest of your body; therefore misalignment of the spine can cause neuromuscular dysfunction decreasing your overall performance.
An imbalance in your spine can lead to imbalances in your shoulders, hips, knees, and all the way down to your ankles. These imbalances affect the way that your entire body moves while exercising or playing sports and can greatly increase your risk of injury.
In a sports chiropractic exam, the doctor will examine the way that your entire body works in conjunction to find sources of imbalances in order to determine the best course of treatment to correct the injury. Sports therapy can include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, targeted exercises and specific stretches designed to correct the imbalances in your body.
Benefits of Sports Medicine Therapy
The key benefit to utilizing sports physiotherapy as part of your fitness regimen is that it can greatly reduce your risk of sports injuries and even sprain / strain during your normal daily activities. With proper alignment, your body is better able to evenly distribute the load of work across your muscles so that no one muscle takes all of the strain.
In addition to reducing your risk of injury, sports chiro and therapy can also help to improve your overall performance. When your body is functioning properly, you will find that you have greater strength, stamina, and endurance to power through even your toughest workouts.
Lastly, sports chiropractic therapy can help your body to recover quicker. Faster recovery times mean that you can get back to working out without worrying about over training yourself and risking injury.
