Athletes and Sports therapy
Human athletes, be they elite or leisure time weekend warriors, often require and benefit from Manual Sports Therapies.
Athletes are often repeatedly doing activities that are physically demanding, which may place considerable cumulative stress on their spine and musculoskeletal (MSK) system.
There can also be high impact injuries, both from the impact with the ground and collisions with other participants.
All of these, the cumulative smaller to medium events and larger injuries may result in biomechanical joint and muscle dysfunction that may have both short and long term implications.
The negative impacts of sport may often go unrecognised & untreated to the detriment of the individual’s health and their performance.
The positive value of Chiropractics for the athlete and competitor can be broadly divided
into three areas:
- Reduction of joint & muscle pain, improved injury healing, recovery & rehabilitation
- Injury prevention & minimization
- Performance optimisation & enhancement.
It is very important for athletes to look after one of their key assets; their spine and other areas of their musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care may contribute positively to both their athletic performance & well-being.
