Let Chiropractic Help You Improve Your Sports Performance

Chiropractors can adjust the spine to remove interference with the nervous system which allows for all systems in the body to function properly giving athletes the ability to achieve peak sports performance.

For an athlete new to chiropractic care, what is a first visit like?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Athletes, like all patients coming in for new chiropractic care, would have a specific chiropractic evaluation and exam, possibly involving x-rays to determine a care plan going forward, set specifically for that individual. That’s all accomplished in the first visit.

Can you explain the link between a healthy spine and sports performance?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Absolutely. A healthy spine is so important for sports performance. The spine houses the spinal cord and protects the nerves going to every muscle, organ, and tissue in our body. If you have subluxations in the spine or misalignments in the spine causing pressure on the nerves, whatever’s at the end of that nerve isn’t going to get its full function. So, if it’s a muscle, it might be pain or weakness or have even decreased performance.

How does chiropractic care improve sports performance?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Chiropractic care, the chiropractic adjustment removes interference in the nerves, and the nerves control and coordinate everything in our body. Sports performance is heavily, heavily relied on things like reaction time, recovery, and explosiveness, all of which have been shown to improve under consistent chiropractic care.

For healthy athletes, can chiropractic care help prevent injuries and aid in recovery?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Absolutely. Healthy athletes should be receiving chiropractic care to help prevent injuries and aid in recovery. Chiropractic care allows the body to adapt to the outside stresses, which is extremely important for athletes looking to prevent injuries and have a quicker recovery time.

To maintain peak performance, how often should an athlete visit a chiropractor?

Dr. Ben Rauch: That’s a great question. Every athlete is different and may need a different frequency of care, but generally speaking, anywhere between weekly and monthly chiropractic visits will keep an athlete performing at their best.
