The Benefits of Chiropractic Care and Stretching Exercises
The physical demands of sports can put a lot of stress on the body, including the spine, which can lead to pain, injuries, and poor performance. Chiropractic care can be particularly beneficial for children and adolescents involved in sports as it can help prevent injuries, improve performance and aid in recovery after an injury.
In this video, I demonstrate some stretching exercises that can be highly beneficial for children before participating in sports, giving them improved flexibility, increased blood flow, better posture, coordination, as well as help reduce muscle tension that could lead to injury.
Demonstrating a Chiropractic Adjustment
A chiropractic adjustment, which is also known as a spinal manipulation, is a technique used by chiropractors to realign the spinal column and reduce interference to the nervous system. The adjustment is typically performed by hand and is applied to specific joints in the spine, with the goal being to restore proper movement and alignment to the spine, which can help alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and improve overall function of the body. In this video, I demonstrate how a typical adjustment would be performed.
Chiropractic Biophysics Techniques and Benefits
Chiropractic Biophysics is a specific technique and an evidence-based method of chiropractic care that uses a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments, postural adjustments, and specific exercises to correct spinal alignment and posture with the goal of improving the structural integrity of the spine and promoting optimal function of the nervous system. This utilizes many different methods including spinal adjustments, traction, and exercises, specialized equipment such as x-ray analysis, postural analysis, and surface electromyography to analyze the patient’s spine and posture, and to track progress over time.
As a parent, you want the best for your child, especially when it comes to their health and athletic performance. Chiropractic care can be a valuable addition to your child’s healthcare routine, especially if they are involved in sports. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help improve your child’s flexibility, range of motion, and overall athletic performance, while also reducing their risk of injury.
It’s important to take proactive measures to ensure your child is at their best on the field and off. We invite you to schedule an appointment with us today, so we can help your child stay injury-free and perform at their best this season.
