Chiropractors and Sports Injuries
Dr. Johnson offers a balanced approach, by using spinal and extremity adjustments as well as physical therapy techniques to help the patient’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their normal function.
When chiropractors talk about extremities they mean the numerous joints present in the body including the jaw, shoulder, ribs, shoulder, wrist, elbows, fingers, hand, hip, ankle, knee, toes, and the foot. Chiropractors always inspect spine to look for potential issues with subluxation, fixation, and joint irregularity but these subluxations, fixations and joint irregularities can also be present in the extremities. These problems in the extremities may also lead to chronic spinal issues. Commonly, the spine is checked and adjusted before going to the extremity to check and adjust it. The extremity adjustment should complement the spinal adjustment.
Chiropractic care meticulously tends to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Additionally, chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously together.
Professional athletes recognize tremendous value in chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Whether you’re an athlete or weekend warrior, receiving chiropractic care will enable you to reach an optimum level of achievement without breaking yourself.
