Chiropractors: Essential for Athletic Performance
Chiropractic care has been an essential part of athletes lives for many years. Athletes of all types, from the weekend warrior to the world-class athlete, utilize Chiropractors to experience the safest, drug-free, non-invasive approach to better health and performance.
Chiropractic adjustments help ensure that the body functions as efficiently as possible, which can maximize healing and recovery from all types of injuries. 90% of all world class athletes use Chiropractic care to prevent and recover from injuries as well as increase their performance potential. This healing art is scientifically proven to increase nerve activity to control and regulate the functions of the human body.
The nervous system controls every activity in the body by sending and receiving nerve messages to the brain and muscles. Nerves are protected by a flexible bony chain which is made up of 33 moveable segments called vertebrae. When the spine is in its optimal structural position, the nerves are protected, and optimal communication exists between the CNS (central nervous system) to the rest of the body. The vertebra of the spine is susceptible to certain stresses and forces, which can cause them to lose their proper position or alignment.
Minor misalignments of the spine, also known as “vertebral subluxations,” cause nerve interference, which causes pressure and weakens the entire structure of the spine. Athletic training can often jar and misalign the spinal column, because the spine is at the center of the body. Impact to the legs, feet, head, shoulders, and torso often radiates to the spine potentially harming it
Our Chiropractors in Berkeley Heights detect and correct vertebral subluxations (dislocations) by physically adjusting the spine and extremities. This restores the spine and nervous system to a more optimal level of function, which maximizes the body’s performance and healing potential.
Anyone who engages in athletics can benefit from regular Chiropractic checkups to ensure that their spine is balanced and free from structural stress and subluxations. When the spine is brought into balance and alignment, the body’s nervous system and body biomechanics (movement and posture) are maximized.
Changes in the optimal spinal position produce spinal pathologies and loss of function. Spinal pathologies (abnormal condition) destroy joint reflexes, arc fibers and cause nerve impedance. Postural strength, coordination, and proper technique are essential for injury prevention and sports performance, which can be ensured by a Chiropractor in our Berkeley Heights office. To maintain your best physical state for whatever you do, chiro-care is the best solution.
