Benefits of Sports Chiropractic
You do not need to be a professional athlete to benefit from sports chiropractic. Anyone involved in physical activities should receive regular chiropractic adjustments in order to prevent injuries, facilitate healing, and reduce wear and tear on the body.
Injuries like sprains, strains, pulled muscles, tendonitis, bursitis and joint problems in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot respond wonderfully to chiropractic care.
How Does Chiropractic Improve Athletic Performance?
Chiropractors view a person as an integrated being, focusing on the nervous system, the spine, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Chiropractors approach the body holistically, and help athletes obtain peak performance by making sure that all of the body’s systems are functioning at their best, minimizing the chance of injury and facilitating efficient recuperation from any existing injuries.
How Does Sports Chiropractic Work?
At River Falls Spine Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we understand that optimal health is only possible with a nervous system that is functioning free of interference. When there is a subluxation (or, partial displacement of a joint or organ) in the body that is causing nerve interference, the cells, tissues, organs and systems affected by that subluxation cannot function properly.
Dr. Gartzke uses specialized instrumentation as well as over 10 years of sports chiropractic clinical experience to pinpoint where these areas of stress are occurring in the body and then determines the best technique to remove any misalignments and tension, allowing the body to return to a healthier state. He also educates athletes on proper exercise techniques and stretches for their sport, and suggests specific nutritional support.
If you are injured or are looking for a way to optimize your performance, book a visit with Dr. Gartzke at River Falls Spine Chiropractic and Wellness today!
