CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR ATHLETES
Professional athletes, student athletes, and weekend warriors have all experienced great benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic is utilized in nearly every sport across the country and there are many reasons why it is so heavily utilized. Dr. Marchman strives to keep our athletes on the field, in the game, and at their best.
IMPROVE YOUR GAME.
Many athletes report an improvement in their game when they are under regular chiropractic care. When everything is structurally where it belongs, brain signals through the spinal cord improve, which in turn improves reaction time, speed, and strength. A study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation tested 50 athletes for agility, balance, kinesthetic perception, power, and reaction time. The group undergoing chiropractic care had a 30% overall improvement compared to the group not under chiropractic care. It is our goal to help our athletes perform at 100 percent, 100 percent of the time.
STAY IN THE GAME.
While some athletes come in with an existing pain or injury, many enter our doors simply because they want to know their body is optimally aligned before they step onto the field. Dr. Marchman recommends preventative care to keep our athletes in the game. By keeping the body in proper alignment from head to toe, there is the potential to prevent future injuries from occurring. There is also the potential to discover the root cause of a recurring injury and be able to stop it in its tracks. Spinal misalignments and muscle imbalances often lay the foundation for serious injury, which is why it is vital for athletes to stay well adjusted.
GET BACK IN THE GAME.
We take a whole body approach rather than just focusing on where the pain or discomfort exists. When the entire body is optimally aligned, injuries heal much more rapidly and pain decreases more quickly. This keeps our athletes where they want to be - on the field or court - rather than on the sidelines. Dr. Marchman is trained to work not only with the spine, but with the extremities as well. From knees to shoulders to ankles, we work on all types of injuries that an athlete may encounter. We strive to get our athletes back on the field or court in as little time as possible.
