Are you an athlete searching for a way to lessen your pain and  fatigue as well as improve your stamina and performance? Well then Chiropractic therapy is the way to go!  Now some of you may be wondering: What exactly are the advantages of chiropractic therapy for athletes?

Here at Monroe Chiropractic and Massage, Dr. Eblen helps athletes understand the science and practice of chiropractic care to reveal its benefits.  Here’s a look at a few of the ways that chiropractic care can help athletes.


1. It relieves the stress from strenuous training

Did you know that all professional and college athletic teams have chiropractors on staff that treat athletes for injuries and to optimize their performance. While you root for your favorite athletes from the stands, you may not be aware of the fact that they put their bodies and spines through unimaginable stress causing muscle aches and body pain.  However, with chiropractic therapy, athletes can greatly reduce their stress and pain.

Chiropractic procedures can soothe and help eliminate body aches and pains.  In fact, Dr. Eblen emphasizes the harm of performance stress on athletes’ spines, which is why chiropractic therapy is heavily promoted for the athlete at Monroe Chiropractic and Massage.


2. It is an effective treatment for many different injuries

Studies have shown that athletes who use chiropractic care can minimize the risk of getting injured.  Chiropractic therapy also helps your body heal quicker in the case of both minor and major injuries. This is because spinal alignment is crucial in allowing your muscles to relax while also improving and promoting better blood circulation.

Chiropractic treatments are important if an athlete wishes to perform at 100%.  Beyond this, chiropractic therapy can also help to manage headaches, ankle aches, and spinal problems.  So, it is important for every athlete to consult a chiropractor on a regular basis to avoid many of these complications.


3. It does not rely on drugs or invasive procedures

Given the choice, it is pretty obvious that most of us want to avoid taking any medications when possible.  This is because medications have side effects that can harm your body and hinder your athletic performance. Chiropractic care on the other hand, is non-invasive and drug free.

This makes the chiropractic therapy beneficial since it provides the option of avoiding side effects altogether.  What’s more, being non-invasive allows you to recover quicker and be ready to get back into the game faster, unlike other invasive procedures which require substantial recovery time for the body.  This is definitely a plus for the serious athlete!


4. It improves performance and prevents injuries

Once you visit Dr. Eblen at Monroe Chiropractic and Massage, you won’t just be getting treatment for your existing problems.  You will also benefit from a program that helps you to avoid injuries in future performances. The best part is, your athleticism will only improve with chiropractic care.  How’s that for effectiveness!!


5. It minimizes pain

As mentioned previously, chiropractic care works using spinal alignment.  We know from scientific studies that spinal alignment is essential to our nervous systems function and well being.  Because of this fact, athletes can have their bodily aches and pains greatly minimized thanks to the healing benefits of chiropractic care.

Well, now you know how to enhance and improve your athletic ability.  For more information, contact Monroe Chiropractic and Massage at 360-794-7115 to book an appointment today with your chiropractic care professional!
