Athletic injuries occur from forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training, and improper warmups or cooldowns. However, regular adjustments can help prevent injury by detecting imbalances and alleviating tensions. The body can thus function and perform at optimal levels. Chiropractic adjustments promote quicker recovery, better balance, increase flexibility, and improve overall performance for athletes.

Chiropractic Care for Major Injuries

Since the shoulder and hip joints both have ball-and-socket mechanisms, they are the two most mobile joints in the human body. Using them frequently, however, results in common injury due to several interconnecting parts. Overuse of the shoulder and hip joint stresses the stabilizing tissues. The tendons and ligaments that anchor the muscle to the bone thus become impacted. Slye Cheramie specializes in treating sports injuries with advanced training in the following areas:

When an athlete experiences sprains, strains, or tears, symptoms may not immediately appear. Instead, after continuous use, the body will try to protect the area through muscle spasms and increased inflammation. Spine misalignments slow the healing process by restricting nerve flow. This causes a nutrient restriction to the affected area. With chiropractic adjustments and thus minimal interference, proper blood flow allows for athletic recovery and optimal performance.

Chiropractic Care for Minor Injuries

Since nerves branch from the spine and reach head to toe, chiropractic care for athletes benefit the entire body. Studies show that chiropractors benefit athletes of all types. During athletic activity, joints exert their maximum range of motion. Therefore, improper movement can cause injury. A chiropractic adjustment allows for a better connection between the brain and body, creating an optimal environment for healing.
