Sports Performance & Injury Prevention
Athletes use chiropractic care for three reasons:
- Injury prevention
- Improved performance
- Faster injury recovery
Those who choose chiropractic treatments want to avoid being sidelined for months due to surgery. They also know that prescription painkillers and muscle relaxants can dull their senses, slow reaction time, and lower their overall performance levels. We believe conservative care using chiropractic adjustments & other therapies is the best FIRST option!
Regular chiropractic treatment is vital to keeping any athlete in top shape! Joints get stiff, muscles get sore, and bodies compensate accordingly. Dr. Schumacher assesses each patient and analyzes the body's musculoskeletal systems to look for abnormalities and malalignments of the spine. Then, the chiropractic adjustment is performed to correct problem areas in the body and improve functionality.
Chiropractic care ensures athletes perform at their peak with each adjustment made. When joints and muscles become stiff, they can't move through the entire range of motion. After adjustments and soft tissue work, range of motion increases and allows for greater mobility. Chiropractic care can help relieve pain after a workout, game, or run- whatever your sport; we've got your back!
Before an athlete goes under the knife, they should seriously consider chiropractic care FIRST. Athletes who enter the clinic with an injury will receive not only adjustments, but other modalities including:
- Dynamic Taping
- IASTM/ FAKTR
- Strengthening Exercises
- Normatec Compression Boots
- Hypervolt Therapy
- Electrical Stimulation
