Serious athletes know the body must be appropriately prepared for activity. But even weekend warriors can benefit by making sure they get proper nutrition and are properly hydrated. Dehydration quickly affects the muscles and their flexibility, causing cramps and potential strains. Proper warm-up sessions can get the body ready for athletic activity. The body should also cool down after participating in sports.
More and more athletes are also discovering the benefits of chiropractic care in improving their athletic performance. They are finding that chiropractic adjustments can help their body's neuromuscular alignment and improve balance and stamina. Massage therapy can increase blood flow, better restoring the body following activity and keeping muscle tissue flexible.
Common sports injuries include strained neck and back muscles, tennis elbow, and even whiplash. Because the neuromuscular system is so far reaching and complex, a sports injury in the neck or back area may manifest itself in other areas of the body like the arms, legs, or even feet. When you visit the sports injury chiropractor Canton athletes turn to for results, we will consult with you about the nature of your injury and your lifestyle. We'll conduct a physical exam to determine the core cause of your discomfort. We will then prescribe an all-natural treatment program specifically for you.
Many sports injuries occur when the body's muscles, nerves, and the spinal area become out of alignment. This disruption in the natural alignment causes a variety of pain, discomfort and even disease. Through chiropractic care, we seek to realign the body, allowing it to better heal and function properly. When combined with massage therapy, chiropractic treatment results can often accelerate.
