Up Your Game with Chiropractic Care
Overview

Small improvements make a big difference when you’re competing, especially in sports. Chiropractors can help a sportsperson train more effectively, prevent injuries, recover faster, thus, improve overall sports performance. Regular chiropractic adjustments improve range of motion, increase blood circulation and reduce muscle soreness.

Chiropractic care helps to improve your health and your athletic ability while ensuring minor injuries do not turn into major ones. You do not have to be a professional athlete to benefit from chiropractic care. Low impact sports may create accumulative minor injuries that will result in pain. Repetitive actions can eventually wear down a body with the same result as a high impact trauma experienced from professional athletes.

Improve and Maintain Peak Performance

Medical prescriptions mask the pain of injuries and bear the risk of addiction. Surgeries have long recovery time and some surgeries might leave the sportsperson incapable of returning to the field forever. On the other hand, chiropractic treatment relieves the pain without medications and surgery. Estimated 90% of world class sportspersons routinely visit a chiropractor to prevent injuries and boost sports performance.

Chiropractic care helps with these common sports injuries:

Tennis elbow
Also known as repetitive stress/ strain injury. It can be caused by repetitive forceful movements of the hand, wrist and elbow.
Back injury from golf
Most common injury suffered by golfers of all ages. Swinging at golf balls puts an individual’s body in an awkward position – opening the opportunity for injury.
Hamstring strain
A hamstring injury can occur when any of the tendons or muscles are overused and stretched beyond their limit. Usually during sudden explosive movements, such as sprinting, lunging, jumping, or sudden stopping and starting. It can happen more gradually, or during slower movements that overstretch your hamstring.
Shin splints
Characterised by pain along the front and usually inner or medial border of the shin. One or both legs can be affected and the pain is diffused or spread along the line of your shin rather than “point tenderness”. Commonly occur in people who have just started a new activity or runners who train too frequently.
Groin pull
Happens when the muscles in the groin and thighs are put under too much load. If they are stressed either too heavily or too forcefully, they can become over-stretched or torn.
