PRESS RELEASE– Anoka, MN, August 25, 2016– Dr. Desiree Van Bogart, D.C., and her dedicated staff at Desired Health Chiropractic want athletes to know that they have the expertise and experience to help contenders reach their optimum performance potential. Chiropractic offers considerable benefits for those involved in high- and low-impact sports.
Many athletes turn to conventional medical treatment as the first line of defense when injuries occur. However, they often find themselves on the sidelines longer than they’d like due to extensive recovery periods. Sometimes, they make their way back into the game, only to spend hours afterward saddled with ice packs and pain medication. As a result, increasing numbers of athletes are seeking chiropractic as an alternative to traditional sports medicine.
Medical doctors usually manage injuries in isolation, while chiropractors consider the body as an integrated system, where muscles, joints, and the like function in harmony. Chiropractic is especially beneficial to athletes, with its emphasis on the spine, muscles, tendons, nerves, and joints. The MN chiropractor has worked with quite a number of top-notch athletes to help them recover quickly from sports injuries, making it possible to get back on the field without sustaining further damage to muscles and tissues.
For high-impact sports participants, alternative therapies enhance performance and flexibility, reducing the risk of injury. Soccer players, for example, are likely to sustain cervical (upper) spinal injuries from heading the ball. Children and adults who play the sport often experience some degree of head trauma and neck injuries, resulting in pain, insomnia, and irritability. Gymnasts and trampoline enthusiasts are also candidates for spinal injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper alignment to promote healing.
For low-impact activities, such as golf, tennis, and bowling, chiropractic alleviates strain placed on the body. Routine adjustments help to mitigate and prevent injuries. The MN chiropractor carefully evaluates each patient, developing an action plan specifically tailored to the individual’s needs and health goals.
