"No pain, no gain"? Although studies have shown moderate exercise can improve your overall health, many sports activities also carry the risk of injury. While bumps and bruises may not affect your athletic performance or health, sports-related spinal or extremity misalignments most certainly can!
Athletes strive to function at their optimum performance level and they want to heal efficiently. Athletes receiving chiropractic care report significant improvement in muscle strength and performance; this is why so many professional sports teams and Olympic athletes employ a team chiropractor. Remember, sports activities can cause injury to adults and children alike; so do as the great athletes do, include chiropractic care in your health maintenance program.
