In order to stay healthy, we are constantly encouraged to participate in sports and/or exercise regularly. Physical contact sports such as football, soccer, or volleyball; and non-contact sports such as cross country, golf, or tennis; all can be very strenuous on your body affecting not only your muscles but your spine as well. With this being said, it’s no wonder that chiropractic care has gained official sanctioning by almost all professional sports teams. Chiropractors play such a key role in the training and recovery process of athletes so much that they’ve included many chiropractors in the Olympic Games.
Chiropractic care is NOT just for problems in your back or neck as many may conclude when hearing the word “chiropractor.” There are several key points other than relieving your back/neck pain in which chiropractic care can improve the performance of any athlete or the active person in all of us; including:
Improving overall perception, hand-eye coordination, & timing
Improving range of motion & flexibility
Increasing blood circulation
Preventing future Injuries
If you would ask any athlete why they use chiropractic care, they would reply with “Not only is it drug-free and surgery free care, but preventative and performance-enhancing care!” At Hammes Family Chiropractic we encourage EVERYONE of all ages to benefit from chiropractic care, because it truly has the potential to positively impact lives and the way we view the health industry. Schedule your appointment today and be on your way to a healthier, more active, YOU!!!
