During the month of June we will be looking at and discussing different topics that involve men’s health. Some examples of issues covered this month include: sports performance, prostate health, heart health, “tough guy” syndrome and nutrition.
Amateur and professional athletes are starting to make chiropractic care a top priority in their training. The three main ways chiropractic care helps enhance sports performance are:
- injury prevention
- recovery time after an injury
- getting to the cause of the problem.
Chiropractors work first and foremost with the nervous system of the body which controls every movement and function of the body. An unhealthy nervous system could lead to a lack of balance, coordination, flexibility, and range of motion to name a few. All of these may lead to injuries during sports activities. If the nervous system is healthy, and functioning properly, a person will not only improve on all the aforementioned activities, but also have the ability to excel in their sport, while reducing the amount of time the body takes to recover after an event or injury. Chiropractors will examine the athlete’s spine, and biomechanics, checking for any nerve pressure or misaligned vertebrae which may compromise the function of the nervous system. Once these are removed, with specific adjustments, the body has the ability to perform at its optimal levels.
