At The Wellness Place, we have been looking after athletes day-in day-out. Some of these athletes have been seeking physiotherapy care and some have chosen to see our chiropractors. Traditionally, most athletes are used to seeing physios for their injuries, however sports chiropractic is fast becoming a growing area of speciality within the chiropractic profession.
Many big names in sports such as Michael Jordan, Evander Holyfield, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Usain Bolt and many others have turned to chiropractic care as part of their routine care to enhance theirperformance.
Even locally, you would be pleased to know that while Dr Soroush Ebtash looked after the WAIS cycling team, almost all athletes who received chiropractic care, scored their PB on the track. Similar impressive results were also noted when Dr Soroush Ebtash looked after the Swan DistrictsFootball Club over 8 years and the club recorded the lowest statistics of non-impact injury list in its history.
If you’re an athlete, you understand the importance of keeping your mind and body in tip-top shape with exercise, healthy foods and plenty of rest. However, some of these results above may be surprising to you.
If you wondered how athletes benefit from chiropractic care, here’s why:
Better mind-body awareness. By improving your neurological and musculoskeletal functionality, your body can perform to the best of its ability. This means proper, free-flowing signals between your brain and body.
Improved coordination. Cerebellum is the part of your brain which controls your coordination and It receives its input from different parts of your body. The joints in your spine and extremities are crucialto “feeding” your cerebellum.
Your chiropractic adjustments provide your brain with the necessary input and information for it to perform optimally. Chiropractic is a completely natural solution to bringing your body into peak performance mode, which means you’re moving with ease exactly how your brain is telling you to.
Heightened flexibility. Proper movement on the field or the court can help prevent future injuries, keeping you in the game longer. Optimal movement is directly dependent on correct alignment. Your chiropractic adjustments ensure you are aligned and moving correctly and comfortably.
