Chiropractic and Sports Injury


Dr Bret WilsonSport is part of the American way of life.  We play games in the school yards and sand lots as children.  Part of our school experience includes sport participation and cheering on our classmates.  Recreational sports contribute to our recreational and social activities as adults.  Participation and enjoyment of sports is a part of a healthy lifestyle.  Chiropractic can help get you in game shape, recover from injury and enjoy sports participation.

Proper function of the spine and joints is essential for participation in all athletic activity.  A spine that is strong, flexible and balance can improve your speed, strength and accuracy.  A properly function spine improves the communication between the brain and the body via the nervous system.  The result is balance, coordination and movement patterns to help you be at your best game.  The chiropractor can evaluate your spine and joints to find restrictions and misalignments that may be interfering with full motion and function.  These joint dysfunctions are treated with adjustments to improve the alignment and motion, reduce nerve interference and restore normal function.

Injuries can occur during play or in everyday activity.  An injury can sideline you from the game and interfere with work and other activities of daily life.   The quick and full recovery begins with proper evaluation and diagnosis.  Then treatment can be directed properly.  Many of the aches pains of athletic activity respond well to conservative measures such as chiropractic, physical therapy, and exercise.  The chiropractor can do the proper evaluation and determine the best treatment.  If the problem requires medication or surgical procedures the proper referral can be made.  For most injuries, aches and pains the conservative natural approach of the chiropractor is the best treatment to get you back in the game.

Prevention is the best way to stay in the game.  Maintaining your health and fitness is based on making the right choices and investing your time in healthy habits.   A diet of lean protein, vegetables and fruit, and healthy fats gives you energy and maintains healthy weight.  Keep hydrated with clean fresh water.  Exercise regularly for stamina, strength and flexibility.  Get adequate rest, proper sleep.  Keep the mind active, focused and keep a positive attitude.

Chiropractic care can help get you ready to play your best game.  Spinal and joint manipulation can help you recover from injury.  Regardless of age or level of competition a healthy spine and nervous system can help you perform better and enjoy your game.

Yours in Health,
