Professional sports figures are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Everyday athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite meticulous care and training, they occasionally experience musculoskeletal stress.
Chiropractors are to athletes, as Cardiologists are to cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating athletic ailments. Chiropractors can treat an athlete more effectively than a medical doctor, who is typically not well versed in sports stress. In addition to treating athletic stress, the chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.
Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game with ice packs and taking pain medication. Medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather they treat each isolated symptom individually.
It has been said that chiropractic care most closely relates to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state.
