Sports Injury Rehabilitation with Chiropractic Care

Sports are a huge part of the fabric of our country.  From youth athletes all the way to professionals we put our bodies through a large amount of stress and injuries for the love of sports.  Most sports are very physically demanding requiring speed, agility, balance, strength, and flexibility.  Couple that with the collisions with other players and hard falls, and it’s easy to see why so many injuries result from sports.  Fortunately, Spinal Care of St Louis provides numerous benefits to athletes of all ages.  Here are 5 benefits athletes will realize from receiving professional chiropractic care.

5 Benefits from Receiving Chiropractic Care at our Fenton Chiropractic Center

1. Reduce Pain from Back or Spine Injury

A hard fall, or severe crash with another player can easily trigger a misalignment in the spine.  When the spine becomes misaligned, pain resulting from a “pinched” or compressed nerve can be felt throughout various parts of the body.  Adjustments to spinal misalignments can reduce the pressure on nerves, thus reducing or eliminating the pain that hockey players feel in your arms, legs, back, or neck.

2. Promote Healing

Scar tissue which builds up after an injury is often responsible for chronic inflammation and pain.  Chiropractic care designed to align the spine can help support internal healing.  This can reduce inflammation, and the pain resulting from inflammation.

3. Increase Range of Motion

When the spine is misaligned in athletes, range of motion in the joints is compromised.  Limited range of motion is responsible for all kinds of unnecessary and potentially avoidable injuries.  Possible chiropractic therapies may include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, or other physical therapy.

4. Improve balance and coordination

Balance and coordination depend upon not only your eyes and ears, but on your nervous system’s ability to send signals to the appropriate parts of the body so that they may respond.  If your spine is misaligned, the transmission of these nerve signals is hindered.  When those signals are compromised it can cause a unbalanced and uncoordinated performance. Through correcting a spinal misalignment, thereby restoring proper alignment of your musculoskeletal system, athletes soon find improvement in balance and coordination.

5. Improved Hand-Eye coordination

Studies have shown that after 12 weeks of Chiropractic care hand-eye coordination was increased in athletes by 30%.
