Does Chiropractic Care Help Athletic Performance?

January 13, 2023

Getting your child involved in sports is a great way to help them expand their social and strategic skills and get them started to prioritize their health now and down the road.

As is the goal with any person who is serious about sports, they’re looking for ways to improve their performance through practice, repetition, etc.

Few realize how important it is to maintain your joints, muscles, and spinal nervous system. Taking the time and finding resources can significantly improve and impact a player’s performance. These things can be addressed through regularly seeing a trusted chiropractor.

At ProActive Health, we’ve helped athletes with their joint pains and show them healthy practices that they can incorporate into their daily life to help prevent future injuries.

Is Chiropractic Care Right For You or Your Child?

Chiropractic care is more than the popping and cracking videos that most people see on TikTok and Instagram. There’s a lot more behind chiropractic care than you may realize.

Each individual’s needs are different, and at ProActive Health, we work with you in defining what those needs are and build a plan around how to address them over time.

Most athletes begin to experience issues when their joints become inflamed after a severe injury or improper care after exercising. This situation can affect your range of motion and your performance.  If you’re a professional sports player or your child is in sports at school, these issues should be addressed immediately as they can lead to serious problems.

When we first take on a new patient experiencing joint pain, we aim to find where the range of motion is being restricted. We begin to gently address these areas through joint mobilization and adjustments. Additionally, we’ll recommend stretching exercises for you to practice on your own to help prevent any future injuries.

Chiropractic care can have positive effects on your spinal nervous system. Why? Since your spinal cord connects your brain to every cell, tissue, muscle, organ and system in your body,  it is essential to ensure that your spine is aligned correctly. Having a spinal nervous system that is not functioning properly can impact your performance and your daily life.

At ProActive Health, we address this part of your body with the proper care and tools needed to help align your spine. We do this through precise and controlled adjustments  of the 24 spinal vertebrae. This adjustment puts the vertebrae into proper alignment, reducing swelling, blockages, and nerve stress, and allows the nervous system to function properly.
