Children who are active in sports and school athletics sure have a lot of fun. But young athletes are also subject to stress and injury. The most common sports injuries include:
· Strains and sprains
· Knee injuries
· Shin splints
· Neck and back injuries
That is why active kids and young athletes can enhance their overall health and athletic performance by receiving regular chiropractic care. The benefits of chiropractic for children and high-school age athletes include:
Reduced risk of injury. Chiropractic care has been shown to help reduce sports-related injuries. A certified chiropractor keeps the musculoskeletal system working properly so the body is less prone to injury. Chiropractors remove joint restrictions and subluxations to help the athlete enjoy full range of motion in the joints and muscles, and this helps to prevent sprains and strains.
Enhanced Functioning. Children and adolescents in sports need central nervous system to be functioning at an optimal level. Chiropractic care addresses dysfunction and removes restrictions throughout the body, helping young athletes build strength and flexibility. Natural relief -- Many studies have shown that chiropractic treatment helps athletes recover from injuries faster without the need for painkillers.
Better Recovery. Chiropractors tailor their treatments methods specific to the injury, and chiropractic adjustments help the body to heal faster and more effectively. When the body is conditioned to heal on its own, the body helps itself recover from stress, training and injury. Chiropractic treatment ensures that every bone and strip of soft tissue is in its proper place with adequate space and blood flow, enabling the body to work properly and naturally to heal itself quickly.
Improved Coordination. Coordination and body control are essential to playing sports. Regular chiropractic care adjusts the sensory receptors in the central nervous system, helping your teen athlete stay balanced and coordinated.
Depending on the individual situation, the Doctor could find, through examination, muscles or muscle groups that have been shut down due to trauma or injury. With Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) these muscle can be found and treated quickly. BEMER vascular therapy is another application that may be used to enhance recovery and endurance.
