Do You Suffer From A Sports Injury?

leg pain

Have you suffered a sports injury in Rogers? Have you heard the names Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Aaron Rodgers, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, and Kareem Abdul-Jubbar before?  These are some of the elite athletes who attribute a large amount of their success to the chiropractic care they received throughout their careers.  In addition to the success experienced by these world class athletes, you may have noticed chiropractors along the sidelines of NFL football games and the most recent Olympic events. Both of these organizations have recognized how vital chiropractic is to their teams success and integrated chiropractic doctors into their sports medicine team.  Not only can chiropractic help world famous athletes excel, it has also been shown to provide short and long term benefits for entry level, high school, and college participants.  Northwest Chiropractic & Rehab has been providing care to local amateur and professional sports teams for years and with this article, will inform you how you can benefit.

How Can Chiropractic Help Rogers Athletes?

Rogers athletes routinely and continually put their bodies through an extremely high level of physical stress.  These stressors are different than what we experience as a result of too much school work or demands from the boss at work. Sports participation often involves quick starts and stops, explosive jumping or running, collisions, and atypical body postures that put added demands on the bodies physical structure.  Therefore, whether you are a football player, wrestler, golfer, or runner, chiropractic can provide the assistance your body needs to be able to adapt to these added stresses.  Often, these unusual stresses cause the bones in our back to come out of place.  The effects of these changes create a cascade that often leads to loss of motion, flexibility, and speed while increasing the chances of developing headaches or predisposing the body to future athletic related injuries.  For example, many long distance runners have been shown to develop chronic cases of tendonitis and pain throughout the joints in their legs.  Typically, they are prescribed a pain killer to mask the symptoms of pain, providing short term relief.  If pain killers were the real solution to the problem, why would they have to be continually taken?

The truth is that many sports related injuries begin due to nerve interference caused by misalignments in our joints, primarily the spine. Our chiropractors at Northwest Chiropractic & Rehab in Rogers are specially trained at removing this type of interference.  When this nerve interference is removed, the body experiences an increase in blood flow, higher immune system function, proper motor pattern firing, and overall better health.  As a result, athletes receiving care at our clinic have noticed increased flexibility, speed, agility, and power during sports participation.  These types of results have been seen at chiropractic clinics all across the country.  In fact, a recent study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Research and Investigation showed that as much as 32% of athletes receiving chiropractic care experienced these results and an even higher percentage showed a decrease in the number of injuries sustained during sports participation.

When Should and Athlete See a Chiropractor?

Just as people get a flu shot at the beginning of the year to try to prevent getting sick, athletes of all ranks shouldn’t wait to see a chiropractor until after an injury has occurred.  While chiropractic has been proven to be an excellent source for injury rehabilitation and healing, it is an even better resource for preventing the damage from happening.  Chiropractors view the body as a whole, taking into account all aspects of health.  Our Northwest Chiropractic & Rehab has the resources to provide adjustive procedures, physical therapy, and soft tissue massage to address the nervous, skeletal, muscular, and ligamentous systems.  Through this approach, the body is allowed to function at its optimal level, keeping you off the bench sidelined with injuries throughout the season.  If you are an athlete in the Rogers area, contact our Northwest Chiropractic & Rehab today to schedule your individualized consolation.

As Jerry Rice said, "Chiropractic care helped me stay healthy and succeed in the league for as long as I did."
