It’s quite common for people to seek chiropractic treatment after they’ve already sustained an injury. In fact, this is how many patients are first introduced to chiropractic care. But what many people don’t realize is that chiropractic can be a fantastic preventative measure as well. If you lead an active life, then it’s likely that your risk of injury is elevated, depending on the intensity of the sports and activities you pursue.

Your body is stronger than you might think, and we want you to enjoy all the health and vitality of an active lifestyle without fear of being injured. Chiropractic care can help with that! Let us show you how our treatments and therapies strengthen your body and make you more resistant to injuries.

First, it’s important to understand that the various structures and systems in your body are not isolated. Rather, they work together to help you function. With that in mind, it becomes much clearer just how much of an impact spinal misalignment can have on the rest of your body. Subluxations, or vertebrae that are shifted out of place, have been known to cause pain and weakness, restricted range of motion, and imbalance.

Your spinal cord runs directly through the spine, threaded through each vertebra like the eye of a needle. A subluxated vertebra will sometimes pinch and compress the nerves in your spinal cord, weakening the signals that run through it. This can lead to a decrease in muscular function. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression therapy can actually relieve the pressure on your spinal cord, thereby maximizing your strength capabilities.

Beyond the nervous system, skeletal misalignments can have some pretty widespread effects. If you are particularly clumsy or often find yourself unable to utilize your full range of motion, then you’re more likely to sustain injuries during everyday activities. These odds only increase for people who try to stay active and exercise regularly. More often than not, such symptoms usually stem from misalignment or muscular tension. A chiropractor can help correct those issues through gentle spinal manipulation and stretching. Furthermore, ask your chiropractor how you can best maintain a healthy posture moving forward, from proper footwear to a more supportive mattress.
