The Importance of Sports Chiropractic Care from French Family Chiropractic
Growing up, many kids play sports. Many adults will continue to play sports either recreationally or competitively. Sports are a great way to stay in shape while also learning about teamwork, respect, compassion, and discipline. At the same time, injuries are very common while practicing or playing. These injuries can leave you sidelined for an extended period of time. The sports chiropractic team from French Family Chiropractic can help everyone in the Clarksville and Erin areas both treat and prevent injuries from happening.
Preventing Sports Injuries with Chiropractic Care
Sports injuries can become very common if you haven’t been fairly active, or don’t warm up properly before strenuous exercise, or play rough/contact sports. A trained chiropractor can help to prevent injuries from happening. With specialized training they can decide on a treatment plan that can improve your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. By targeting common injury locations, a chiropractor can strengthen these areas, helping to prevent injuries from happening in the first place. Improving muscle balance, correcting posture, and ensuring proper spinal alignment are all important for making sure every athlete is in their best shape.
Chiropractic Treatment for Sports Injuries
If you end up with a sports injury, you may want to avoid having to take excessive pain killers. The RICE method is very common to treat these injuries, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, though sometimes this isn’t enough to treat the injury. This is where a chiropractor can help. In the event of an injury, a chiropractor can help you recover using diet, nutrition, exercises, join adjustments, and many more natural and holistic modalities. These corrective measures can also be great for pain management. Using corrective exercises and physical therapy, the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints are loosened and allowed to heal after an injury.
