Athletes can experience many different benefits from receiving chiropractic care and with Durango’s active lifestyle; we know how important that is to you. Not only can adjustments help when treating injuries from high-impact sports such as football, and hockey, but they offer other benefits as well. It’s been shown that high-impact sports can place the same amount of strain on the body as an auto collision. Athletes getting routine adjustments may notice improved athletic performance, improved range of motion (especially in endurance athletes), better flexibility, increased blood flow, and may suffer from fewer injuries. Because spinal adjustments will reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, the healing time from minor injuries can be shortened thus improving performance.
Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments. For high-impact athletes, it increases performance and flexibility and lowers the risk for injury; for low-impact athletes (golfers, tennis players, etc.), routine adjustments can help relieve the strain that is being placed on the body. Chiropractic care offers a natural way to reduce and prevent many different ailments that often plague athletes.
