Chiropractic for Athletes
Did you know that most professional sports teams have a chiropractor on staff for their players? Athletes see benefits such as injury prevention, better range of motion, and faster recovery times when utilizing chiropractic care.
Here at Bridge Chiropractic we are proud to support local athletes of all ages and skill levels to reach their goals.As an athlete, your body is constantly working to build, maintain, and repair muscle and other body tissues. We provide a wide range of services to our athletes including adjustments to the spine and extremities (joints like the shoulder, hip, knee, ankle), as well as nutritional supplements, and other therapies to help improve muscle and joint function.
Chiropractic adjustments help the nervous system function better, which in turn helps the body perform better. The nervous system controls everything in our bodies including movement of muscles and joints, heart rate, and breathing. Each of these need to be working correctly for your body to be able to perform at the highest potential.
What about something to help during activity? That’s where RockTape comes in. RockTape is a myofascial tape that supports an injured area without being restrictive like an athletic tape or brace would be. It separates the skin from the muscle and fascia underneath, allowing for greater blood flow to the area and removal of waste to decrease inflammation. It serves as a constant reminder to certain muscles to relax or stay contracted. This is a great way to support the body between adjustments. We sell RockTape in the office, and do classes on how to correctly apply it. Be sure to check out our facebook videos for examples of tapings.
Whether you’re looking to prevent an injury, or recover from one faster, taking care of your body is key. Nutrition, stretching, chiropractic adjustments, and other modalities are the perfect combination to help athletes stay active. Call today to see what we can do for you!
