Footy is just around the corner and Glen Waverley chiropractor Dr Shaun Beovich says that this is the perfect time to make sure your spine and nervous system is functioning to its peak.
Chiropractic is all about helping you enjoy more freedom of movement and getting your body to perform at its peak. Athletes may notice a dramatic difference in their muscle strength, balance, coordination, performance and flexibility following a chiropractic adjustment.
Many sports people in Glen Waverley use chiropractic care as part of their health care regime.
Three aspects in which chiropractic care may help you:
- Prevent injuries
- Treat injuries
- Optimise performance
Chiropractic adjustments help to achieve optimal muscle and joint function for the entire body. By getting your body back into balance, you can prevent future sports injuries, which would otherwise leave you out of action for weeks. Many successful sports stars use chiropractic, not only to avoid injuries but to also achieve better performance.
Chiropractic aims to correct the cause of the problem which led to injury in the first place. Every muscle, ligament, tendon and joint is properly assessed to help sports people and professional athletes reach their peak potential by making sure the body is functioning as well as it can be.
Exercise and physical activity are great for conditioning and strengthening your body. Keeping fit helps you age better and helps you to resist illnesses. However, being injured in training or in competition is a reality that sports people must face. Too often, sports injuries go unrecognised & untreated, ignored until they begin to impact your health and sporting performance.
Athletes are often repeatedly doing activities that are physically demanding, which places a large amount of stress on their body. You cannot compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment, and your body cannot heal quickly if you are out of balance.
Many Olympic athletes use chiropractic care to gain the edge on their competitors. With a fine-tuned spine and nervous system, their bodies can perform at its peak and they can have confidence in the stability and function of their spine. Due to the influence on the nervous system this may lead to improved performance throughout the body.
