Sports Chiropractic

Men on bicyclesMany athletes consider chiropractic to be their “secret weapon.” Whether you’re a CrossFitter, runner, cyclist or school-aged athlete, chiropractic can help you perform at your best. “I always tell kids that they have “the unfair chiropractic advantage” when they’re getting adjusted and playing sports,” said Dr. Symes.

That’s because their body’s functioning better which allows them to exercise harder, recover faster and perform at higher levels.”

How Chiropractic Addresses Spinal Misalignment

A misaligned spine can affect your entire body. For athletes, that means you may experience compromised range of motion, recovery time and flexibility, resulting in performance difficulties. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments can correct misalignments and help you be at your athletic best.

Pro Athletes Rely on Chiropractic

Given chiropractic’s incredible ability to improve sports performance and address injuries without drugs or surgery it’s no wonder most professional sports teams either have a chiropractor on staff or one they refer players to. Consider the case of Stephen Strasburg, the Washington Nationals pitcher, who credits chiropractic care with enabling him to use his shoulder after it was injured to pitch in the 2019 World Series.

What are some types of sports injuries you can address?

How can chiropractic help me perform better?

If you have a more comfortable range of motion, you’re going to perform better.
Can chiropractic help me avoid reliance on pain medication?

Yes. Given the nation’s opioid epidemic, many people prefer chiropractic care as it provides drug-free pain relief, without any side effects.
How does chiropractic help with injuries of the extremities such as the shoulders?

Your body is a kinetic chain, so it all works together. For example, if you’re subluxated (spine is not functioning or moving properly) in your upper thoracic and low cervical spine, it can result in changed functionality or range of motion through your shoulder. Chiropractic care will improve spinal function to allow an injured shoulder and the surrounding tissues to function properly.
