Young athletes are working harder today than ever and starting at an earlier age. With the competition among kids sports being at an all time high they are finding themselves pushing through injury to obtain that critical spot on the team. Chiropractic care can provide long-lasting benefits to these young athletes.
Normal wear and tear is common among athletes due to the repetitive motions in most sports. A gymnast or cheerleader tumbling and jumping, a football player taking hit after hit, a golfer swinging time after time. When this happens and fatigue sets in, athletes need to press the reset button before the next game, competition and/or practice.
A chiropractor can help relieve some of the soreness and fatigue by utilizing different techniques to help improve blood flow and reduce lactic acid. Adjustments, soft tissue work, massage therapy, muscle stimulation, MYK therapy and stretching are just some examples that the chiropractor may suggest. By getting the athlete on a regular routine with a chiropractor they can help decrease recovery time, assist in injury repair, achieve optimal wellness and enhance their overall performance.
