Sports and the Chiropractic Lifestyle


Professional athletes, like Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong, as well as "weekend warriors", and those who just want to remain fit are employing chiropractic doctors because they get results! In the body, proper motion is essential for proper function. Joints of the body can lose their normal motion and position, leading to symptoms of pain, swelling, and loss of function.

Spinal injuries can restrict the range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance for all athletes. However, chiropractic care in Evergreen can help restore function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Peak performance depends on proper joint movement, which in turn prevents injury to muscles, tendons, and ligaments because they are placed under less stress, pressure, and stretch. Injuries to these soft tissues can reduce the range of motion and support, decrease blood supply, and literally "take you out of the game." By normalizing spinal function, the healing process for these soft tissues is increased and the deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines is reduced.

Many people are surprised to learn that joint pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, or knee can be helped by chiropractic care. Many of these problems are known as "tennis elbow," runner's knee," "frozen shoulder," and "carpal tunnel." When joint function is impaired in these joints, there is a loss of range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue. This may be the result of repetitive motions, improper sitting, overexertion, slips, falls, and accidents. However, when a chiropractor mobilizes the joint and restores the range of motion to these "locked" or jammed up" joints, there is an increase in blood circulation, reduction of scar tissue, and it speeds up the healing process.
