Injury Prevention as a sportsman or woman you should be looking to Chiropractic care for the prevention instead of the treatment of injuries. Most injuries, except those caused from trauma, occur as a result of incorrect bio-mechanics which cause weak or faulty movement patterns. These faulty movement patterns affect the way your body functions and causes you to put excessive stress on certain structures of the body, leading to overuse injuries.
Chiropractic care focuses on the structure and function of the entire body. This gives chiropractors the ability to detect any fault movement patterns which are responsible for future injury. By correcting these faulty movement patterns chiropractic care can prevent the occurrence of overuse injuries. Not only does Chiropractic care provides you with a tool for early detection and prevention of injuries, but extensive amounts of research has shown that Chiropractic care can increase sporting performance as well. This is where you as a competitor can gain a winning edge over the rest of your field.
