5 Reasons Why Student Athletes Should Consider Chiropractic Care

Written By North Florida Spine and Wellness Institute on September 7, 2018

If you’re an athlete, being in top physical shape is critical for performing at the top level in your sport, and preventing injuries is key to being able to compete longer, harder, and better. 

While staying in peak condition is important for performance enhancement, sometimes the simplest of things get overlooked, knocking down your competitive edge and leaving you prone to injury.

Continual chiropractic care can help you achieve your competitive edge while preventing — or treating — sports injuries in a safe and effective way.

Chiropractic Care for Performance Enhancement and Sports Injuries

Many sports teams at both national and local levels rely on chiropractors to keep athletes injury-free and in top condition.

Even Olympic athletes use chiropractors to improve performance and stay well throughout the competitive season.

Why should you consider chiropractic care for your own athletic endeavors? Here are five reasons:

1. Improved Range of Motion

Athletic training often results in pressure on your body and problems with spinal alignment that contributes to stiffness and pain.

Chiropractic care can fix alignment for injury prevention and pain-free movement.

2. Faster Healing

If you do sustain an injury, chiropractic care can help you heal faster from a number of ailments.

Adjustments, even to ankles, shoulders, and other joints, can increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and speed up healing.

3. Reduced Pain

Many active people suffer from low back pain that can interfere with performance. A chiropractor can relieve that pain with spinal manipulation.

An April 2017 study associated spinal manipulation showed significant improvements in function and pain.

4. Less Prescription Meds for Pain

Chiropractic care offers athletes a drug-free alternative that reduces, or even eliminates, pain. 

The American College of Physicians recently recommended that techniques like spinal manipulation be used before prescription medication.

5. Non-Invasive Treatment

Chiropractic care is non-invasive and, as such, can help athletes return more quickly to their sport.
