Benefits of Chiropractic for Athletes

With the Rio Olympics starting Friday night, we wanted to highlight the benefits of chiropractic care for athletes! We can guarantee there is a flock of chiropractors in Rio right now helping their athletes recover and reach their peak level of performance! In fact, experts estimate that nearly 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to help in their sports performance and recovery. Why is chiropractic so popular among athletes? Check out these benefits to learn why:

Chiropractic care helps the body recover from athletic performances. When vertebral subluxations exist in the spine, they irritate the entire nervous system, disrupting communication between your brain and the rest of your body. This communication disruption negatively impacts athletic performance. When athletes are regularly adjusted, their nervous systems can function as they should, boosting their performance and helping them recover quickly.

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment. It’s no secret that exercise is amazing for your health, but it can also take its toll on the body. Chiropractic offers a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option for athletes! Whether it’s a slipped disc, sore muscles, neck pain, back pain, or anything in between, chiropractic can help!

Chiropractic care can boost performance and prevent injury. Several studies show that chiropractic care helps athletes achieve an optimal level of performance because it helps make sure their nervous systems are functioning exactly as they should. Because the nervous system controls every bodily function, as it functions as it should, so will the rest of the body!

If you exercise regularly (if you don’t, you should!), call us today for your appointment. We would love to help you reach your optimum level of performance!

    I came to Abundant Life for sleep issues because of hot flashes and then I tweaked my back. Since starting care, my sleep is greatly improved and my back situation improved quickly. I would definitely recommend care at Abundant Life. -Karen B.

    I originally came to see Dr. Knight for allergies and sinus problems. Since starting care I can breathe better, I don’t break out in hives as much and I don’t have the ringing in my right ear. I wish I would've known Dr. Knight years ago. -Michelle M.
