Preventing Sports Injuries with Chiropractic Care

chiropractor sacramento

For athletes, success is where preparation and opportunity meet

Within this formula, we are interested in the preparation; how can we work together to better prepare your bodies for the challenges you face in your chosen sport? When an athlete comes to see us at our office in Sacramento, we focus on the following:

  • Improving biomechanics of the upper body and lower limbs 
  • Maximize range of motion in joints throughout the body
  • Boosting core stability
  • Establishing spinal alignment and balance
  • Resolving muscle imbalances
  • Promote faster healing 
  • Naturally increase energy levels

Every single one of these bullet points represents an important factor in athletic success. But the most important part of this preparation process is that it keeps your body in the best position to avoid injury; by increasing your body’s natural resilience, and ensuring the right pieces are in place to stabilize the transfer of forces in a healthy manner, we go a long way toward preventing common sports injuries. 

Techniques for improving sports performance

You may be wondering how chiropractic can possibly do all of these things for your body. As musculoskeletal specialists, we are trained in the way the human body interacts with motions and forces, and the likely pathways toward injury. We are therefore well-equipped to help you avoid these pathways and increase athletic performance naturally. We use:

  • Spinal adjustment
  • Decompression therapy
  • Sports massage
  • Hip alignmnet
  • Lower limb biomechanical analysis
  • Postural work
  • Corrective exercise and stretching

All of these natural modalities are geared toward retraining your body into healthier patterns that support your movement and prevent injury. Put together, they create a powerful force that will give you a cutting edge on the playing field or in the gym.
