Can Chiropractic Help Athletes? Foresight Chiropractic Gilbert, AZ 85233, 85234, 85296
Chiropractic has been shown to be effective with neck and back pain. Can Chiropractic help athletes perform better? Yes! Over 30% of the sensory information needed to balance the body comes from the joints and muscles of the head and neck, so it makes sense that athletes under chiropractic care would perform better and recover from injuries quicker.
When injuries occur or muscles are out of balance, the body adapts. The shoulders, chest, spine, pelvis, knees and feet may twist and become uneven as the brain works to balance the body. Restricted spinal joint movements decrease neurological input to the brain—which further activates the fight and flight systems and leads to body dis-ease and ill-health. Left uncorrected, this new stressful posture will cause further fatigue, limited range of motion and compromised health until proper spinal motion is restored.
