Both professional and amateur athletes test the limits of their bodies while performing their sports. A body that is functioning at less than 100%, due to subluxations, will be more prone to injury. This is another reason why many athletes are under regular maintenance chiropractic care. Avoiding injuries is the best way to stay in the game.
In sports, injuries are sometimes unavoidable. Chiropractic helps athletes recover quickly and completely by making sure the nervous system is is free of interference therefore maximizing the body's healing abilities. If subluxations are present, the resulting nerve interference will cause the healing process to take longer, or not heal correctly.
Regardless of whatever other treatments an athlete may seek for their injury, chiropractic should be included as part of the recovery regime.
