Can Chiropractic Care Help With Football Injuries?

It’s estimated that 90% of football players will experience some type of sports injury during any given season. Some of these football injuries are responsible for the same amount of strain on the body as a car accident, leaving athletes with excruciating pain and a decrease in their overall performance. At Advanced Health Chiropractic, they offer football players their help for injuries sustained during football season in Idaho Falls. Their Chiropractic Care tailored to the athlete’s specific injuries to ease their pain and get them back to their peak performance levels. They offer effective, drug free, and non invasive treatment options that help the body heal naturally, instead of just masking the pain. 

Treating Sports Injuries: Spinal Manipulation

When an athlete’s spine has imperfections in its movements or it’s out of alignment, the vertebral subluxations will create focal areas of irritation throughout the nervous system. Once the nervous system’s irritated, it begins to interfere with the overall function of other systems throughout the body. These imperfections cause a significant amount of strain on ligaments, joints, nerves, discs, and muscles causing pain. By getting regular spinal adjustments at Idaho Falls Chiropractor, the athlete experiences pain relief and a broader range of motion then they had before. Additionally, regular adjustments will lead to better flexibility, an improvement in their overall athletic performance, and an increase in blood flow.

By aligning the spine and increasing blood flow throughout the body, the stress and inflammation diminishes and the athletes body will begin to heal faster. Spinal manipulation also provides immediate relief to football players who suffer from headaches that originate from the neck. These headaches are a direct result of a neck or head injury sustained on the field or during practice. Spinal Manipulation can also treat other areas of pain from football injuries such as shoulder pain, slipped discs, or trapped nerves.
