Sports Injury IN Waukesha
Waukesha 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?
CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR SPORTS INJURY
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 Acu-Med Integrative Medicine LLC in Waukesha 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.
