Professional athletes are constantly reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Competitors train rigorously and take their diets to a new level every day. Yet despite the conscientious care and precautions that athletes follow, most experience musculoskeletal injuries at one time or another.
Chiropractors and Sports Injuries
Chiropractors are to athletes as cardiologists are to those who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Chiropractic treatment offers a balanced, holistic approach, by using spinal adjustments and physical therapy techniques to help the patient’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their normal function. Many athletes return to their sport much faster and at a higher level of performance when they use chiropractic care. In addition, at Hjort Chiropractic Dr. Stoebe is certified in Active Release Techniques. This type of treatment is used on many professional athletes with great success and helps restore soft tissue function in many cases much faster than traditional medical approaches.
Chiropractic care meticulously tends to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Additionally, chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously in their healthiest, most natural state.
Professional athletes recognize tremendous value in chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Whether you’re an athlete or weekend warrior, receiving chiropractic care will enable you to reach an optimum level of achievement without breaking yourself.
