5 Benefits of Sports Chiropractic Care

As an athlete, you know how vital good health is to your game. If you’re out of shape or your musculoskeletal system is out of balance, it will affect your performance. Regular visits to your Nanaimo chiropractor at Woodgrove Pines Clinic can ensure your system is properly aligned at all times in preparation for the challenges you face in the future. Here are some of the benefits you stand to gain from sports chiropractic care.  

Natural Treatment for Sports Injuries

Chiropractic care has been proven quite effective in treating muscle, joint, ligament, soft tissue and tendon injuries that occur during sports play. Our treatments are safe, non-invasive and drug-free, reducing your risk of getting addicted to pain pills. We’ll treat your symptoms and the source of your pain to help you fully recover from your injury.    

Faster Healing  

If your system is out of alignment, it will take longer for you to heal. Your Nanaimo chiropractor will use a chiropractic technique called spinal adjustment to realign your musculoskeletal system to expedite your recovery. In addition to realigning your system, adjustments help reduce pain, inflammation and muscle spasms to make it easier for your body to heal.

Pain Relief  

Chiropractic techniques were designed to alleviate pain from musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. When vertebrae compress spinal nerves, it can cause pain from your neck all the way down your leg. By readjusting these vertebrae, pressure is taken off the nerves to alleviate pain. Additional therapies used for pain relief include massage, hot/cold treatments, ultrasound, and physical therapy.

Increased Range of Motion

Spinal adjustments correct misalignments in your spine that are causing pain and restricting your movements. Once your body is back in balance, you can enjoy a greater range of motion with reduced pain and discomfort.

Prevention of Injuries

Chiropractic care can correct weak links in your body and strengthen your muscles to make you less susceptible to sports injuries in the future.
