Chiropractic has long been an achiever in the realm of sports injury rehabilitation and athletic performance management. Many athletes and sports managers alike have realised the benefits of chiropractic care in sports and have incorporated it as part of their training regimen.
The function of muscles and joints are all intricately controlled by the nervous system. Fine-tuning this neuromuscular function with chiropractic care has allowed many athletes to recover from sporting injuries, prevent their recurrence, and enhance their athletic performance.
Optimum recovery, strength, stamina, and balance all require a properly functioning nervous system. At Gladesville Chiropractic Care, we have great experience and results working with local athletes, both amateur and professional. We want to ensure players receive a clear diagnosis and the best possible care for their injuries and keep them in the game.
Sports Injury Management with Chiropractic
A Chiropractic adjustment stimulates proper nerve system control allowing increased muscle strength, decreased pain, and improved balance and coordination. This can significantly decrease the risk of injury, allowing you to move better for longer resulting in improved performance. This is equally important in rehabilitation.
If you have suffered a sports injury, proper rehabilitation is necessary for a healthy return to an active lifestyle
The goals of sports injury treatment and rehabilitation are:
- Protect the injured tissues to allow healing and to control the early inflammatory phase.
- Rehabilitate flexibility, strength, proprioception, muscle balance and movement control.
- Test the sport-specific activities to ensure the athlete can return to sport safely.
Just as Chiropractic care is a vital part of a professional athlete’s regime, it’s just as important for those of us with an interest in regular exercise and general wellbeing to keep our bodies balanced and working at their best.
At Gladesville Chiropractic Care we believe that just like regular exercise and eating a healthy diet, regular chiropractic care is an essential part of keeping our bodies functioning at their full potential.
