Why Do Athletes Need a Chiropractor?

Bottom Line:


Training, preparing, and competing are all part of what makes sports so much fun.


Wait - what about rest and recovery?


Afterall, the majority of motions commonly seen in many popular sports can place a tremendous amount of stress on your neck and back.


And while our bodies are incredibly strong and resilient, rest and recovery days are necessary for athletes at all levels.


You don’t have to take an all or nothing approach when it comes to what you do on a rest or recovery day compared to a training or game day.


Your needs during training and your needs during recovery depend on a wide range of factors.


Chiropractors understand this and are uniquely trained to assist athletes in recovery both before and after competition.



Why it Matters:


So, why do athletes need a chiropractor?


During training, you’re pushing and challenging your body with the goal of improving your performance.


As part of that process, you may encounter some level of back pain.


And with that back pain often comes spinal stiffness.


That’s just one example of an area where chiropractic care shines for athletes.


Chiropractic adjustments can help you keep your training on track by actively improving your overall range of motion and flexibility.


Likewise, during rest and recovery, the use of soft tissue therapy and other techniques can help with tissue repair, inflammation reduction, and recovery acceleration as a whole.


Through training and recovery, we have your back!


If you experience spinal stiffness or other restrictions in your movement while training, chiropractic can help.

Chiropractic adjustments can specifically help improve your range of motion, which can help better facilitate the healing processes in your body.

Chiropractors often offer soft tissue therapies targeted at the muscles of the body to complement and boost the effects of the adjustments used to treat the joints of the body.

 

 

Next Steps: 


Don’t get the wrong idea!


You don't need to be an Olympic athlete to enjoy the benefits chiropractic has to offer.


Former athletes, current athletes, soon-to-be athletes, amateur athletes, weekend warriors - everyone can benefit from chiropractic care.


That’s no exaggeration.


When you move better, you feel better, and you heal better.


Regardless of your health goals, we want to be a part of the team that keeps you off the sidelines and actively enjoying the game of life.


So, if you enjoy getting up and getting active and are looking for a chiropractic sports therapy clinic in Webster, you know where to go!

Testimonials

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
