Why should I see a Chiropractor for a Sports Injury?

The main reason for sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training, and failure to warm up properly. Regular visits to a Chiropractor can help relieve pain, promote quicker recovery, better balance, increased performance and endurance, and injury prevention.
Spinal adjustments and spinal decompression can help with sports injuries. Chiropractic Care is designed to help improve joint mobilization, making sure all the joints in the body are moving correctly, better coordination, and flexibility.
During spinal adjustments gentle pressure is applied to properly realign the spinal discs that can help relieve pain, pressure, and tension on the nervous system ensuring proper alignment and balance in the body.
During spinal decompression, the spine is gently stretched using a traction table. With this treatment the space between the spinal discs is increased.
