Wirth Chiropractic is very excited to be supporting East Carolina University and their top-notch athletics program. With on-campus recreation and wellness facilities and plenty of activities to choose from, students at ECU can stay fit and engage in competitive sports all year round. We’re proud to stand with a school that promotes an active lifestyle and positive camaraderie through a variety of organized sports, including baseball, basketball, football, and cheerleading.

Here at Wirth Chiropractic, we also believe in the benefits of chiropractic care when it comes to high-level athletics. There are a number of advantages to be gained through regular chiropractic adjustments and therapies. In fact, serious athletes might find that chiropractic care elevates their game to new heights. Let’s take a look at some of these core benefits and how they can aid the ECU athletics department.

  • Improved Range of Motion. Your body’s range of motion is extremely important when participating in competitive sports. If your muscles are stiff and inflexible, you won’t reach peak performance. Chiropractic therapies can help increase flexibility in your muscles and joints.
  • Pain Relief & Recovery. Sports injuries are not at all uncommon, but they can be quite painful, and they often take some time to heal. Chiropractic care can promote pain relief and recovery by aiding your body’s natural healing process. Whether you’ve suffered a sprained ankle or a broken bone or a concussion, invest in your healing and get back in the game by scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor.
  • Injury Prevention. While chiropractic is a fantastic resource for aiding recovery after an injury, it’s also great for preventing the occurrence of injuries in the future. The musculoskeletal system is composed of many moving parts. If these parts were to become unbalanced and get out of sync with one another, your performance would suffer and your risk of getting hurt would increase. Chiropractic adjustments keep everything properly aligned to reduce the odds of injury.
  • Maintenance & Preparedness. Regular chiropractic visits are perfect for making sure that your body is running in tip-top shape at all times. Boost immunity, reduce risk of pain and injury, and increase overall performance by consulting your chiropractor monthly, bimonthly, or even weekly.
