Have you suffered a sports injury in the Atascadero area? Have you heard the names Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Aaron Rodgers, Tiger Woods, Evander Holyfield, Tom Brady, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kareem Abdul-Jubbar before? These are some of the elite athletes who attribute a large amount of their success to the chiropractic care they received throughout their careers.

In addition to the success experienced by these world class athletes, you may have noticed chiropractors along the sidelines of NFL football games and at Olympic events.

How Can Chiropractic Help Atascadero Athletes?

Chiropractors are ideally suited to help you deal with the many pains and strains resulting from playing sports and pursuing physical fitness programs. Whether you are a professional athlete or weekend warrior, our goal is to reduce your pain while equipping your body to make a complete recovery on its own.

People often ask how a chiropractor can help hurting athletes, considering that spinal injuries constitute only a small percentage of sports injuries. The reason a chiropractic approach to sports injuries is effective (and utilized by professional athletes the world over) is that chiropractors are musculoskeletal experts.

Balance is key to caring for and preventing sports injuries, and Dr Wells and the doctors at Hart Family Chiropractic are trained in aligning and balancing the spine as well as releasing muscle tension, which can lead to muscle injury. Making sure your frame is functioning properly will take pressure off of the nerves exiting out of the spinal column. We’ll also check for biomechanical and muscle imbalances as a routine part of caring for your athletic injury.

When Should an Athlete See a Chiropractor?

Just as people get a flu shot at the beginning of the year to try to prevent getting sick, athletes of all ranks shouldn't wait to see a chiropractor until after an injury has occurred. While chiropractic has been proven to be an excellent source for injury rehabilitation and healing, it is an even better resource for preventing the damage from happening. Chiropractors view the body as a whole, taking into account all aspects of health. Our team of professionals at Hart Family Chiropractic has the resources to provide adjustive procedures, physical therapy, and soft tissue massage to address the nervous, skeletal, muscular, and ligamentous systems. Through this approach, the body is allowed to function at its optimal level, keeping you off the bench sidelined with injuries throughout the season.
