Have you ever wondered why every major league team in the country, as well as all big colleges in in Florida have chiropractors on staff to treat athletes? The answer is in the goal of the coaches and the well-being of the team. We now know the benefits of sports chiropractic care and has even garnered considerable endorsements by high level athletes.
Whereas most people who see us at New Spring Chiropractic are simply active and exercise to stay fit and healthy, we also see athletes who compete at different levels in Palm Coast and the surrounding area. A major focus at our office is preventing injuries with sports chiropractic before they occur. One aspect of an athlete’s structure we regularly assess is the extremities, meaning the arms and legs. Shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and the feet are more likely to be displaced from normal functioning positions when competing due to increased stress placed on those parts of the body. Once this occurs, the biomechanics of running, throwing, jumping, and catching will be compromised, making it harder for an athlete to do their best during a game or event.
We can help to find underlying stress to joints and correct them before they cause more problems. This includes making sure there is normal nerve function to the muscles, bones, and joints of the upper and lower body. Once any compromises are corrected, athletes can experience faster times, more goals, and less fatigue and injury on the track and court.
The important thing to remember is that we see people of all activity levels at our office. Once a weakness is found, we can tailor the care to exactly what is needed. So whether you are wanting to take a few strokes off your golf game, or simply want to function and feel better, rest assured that we have your best in mind.
