The Chiropractic Lifestyle:
Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles, and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of these joints in your body are part of this musculoskeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition, and lifestyle.
Proper spinal function is essential for peak performance at work or home.
Chiropractic care helps restore the function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to those tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply, and literally “take you out of the game”.
Normalizing spinal function helps speed the healing of these soft tissues and reduce the deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines. An aerobic exercise program or a plan of brisk walking can improve muscle tone and help you recover from strains, sprains, and other activity-restricting health problems.
Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or bowl, the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention. Call us today to find out if chiropractic care can help restore your health, improve your performance, and increase your competitive edge.
Consulting a Chiropractic Doctor.
Problems can start with the spine and affect the extremities, or they can begin with an extremity, like a knee or an ankle and then create further compensation problems in the spine. Either way, many sports-related injuries involve the spine. Professional athletes, “weekend warriors” and those who just want to remain fit, are discovering the benefits of regular chiropractic care.
