Chiropractic adjustments can benefit anyone, of any age or fitness level, but it’s especially effective for bodies under the constant stress of sports. In fact, a whopping 90% of world-class athletes swear by chiropractic care You may be wondering, what about chiropractic care is so particularly effective for athletes?
Chiropractic actually improves athletic performance. Sports, especially contact sports, have a tendency to cause subluxations in the spine by knocking it around and putting stress on the muscles. The subluxations, or misaligned vertebrae, interfere with the body’s ability to function at its highest capacity. By correcting these subluxations with chiropractic adjustments, studies show that the average athlete will notice a 6.12% increase in performance. Not only that, but it has also been proven that athletes could notice an incredible 30% increase in hand-eye coordination after 12 weeks of chiropractic care. These increases in performance inevitably lead to more effective training. 100% of runners have reported that, by using a chiropractor, they’ve been able to not only maintain but increase their training mileage comfortably.
In addition to improving performance, chiropractic care is extremely important for preventing injuries. Misalignments in the body cause unnecessary stress on joints and muscles and the musculoskeletal benefits of chiropractic help keep the body flexible and running smoothly. Adjustments in posture and alignment prevent the movements that cause injuries. Also, chiropractic treatment decreases the irritation in the joints and between the vertebrae, which helps the body heal itself faster and leads to quicker recovery.
Overall, every aspect of the art of athletics can and will benefit from regular chiropractic! So get your sporty self in to see Dr. Kite at 303 Denver Chiropractic today!
