How Regular Chiropractic Care Benefits Serious Athletes and Weekend Warriors

Whether you’re a competitive athlete or someone who simply enjoys more active pursuits during your free time, you want to have the right tools to enhance your performance. The hours you spend researching gear to give you a winning edge are well spent, to be sure, but don’t forget your most formidable tool: your body. Just as you check that your bike chain is greased and your 9 iron is up to snuff, make sure to provide proactive care for your body so that it’s functioning at an optimal level.

At Regenerative Health & Wellness, in Holly, Colorado, our team of chiropractic specialists understands better than most the incredibly important role your musculoskeletal structure plays in your athletic performance. When it comes to staying at the top of your game, everything needs to be working together, like a well-oiled machine, which is precisely the goal behind our chiropractic care.

Here’s a look at how regular chiropractic care benefits both serious athletes and weekend warriors.

Keeping your body in line

At the heart of your musculoskeletal structure lies your spine, which quietly provides the foundational support your body needs while also facilitating a great deal of movement. Your spine’s contribution to your athletic endeavors is critical, which is why our chiropractic care concentrates first and foremost on this large area.

A big impediment to your spine’s (and body’s) health is misalignment. Misalignments that develop along your vertebrae compromise the function of your spine and block critical resources from flowing freely throughout your body. 

Dismantling these blockages, or subluxations, is our first order of business, as even a small misalignment can lead to cascading problems as your nerves and supporting tissue become involved.

Through regular chiropractic adjustments, we ensure that your spine is properly aligned, allowing you full freedom of movement, as well as a proper flow of resources to maintain your active lifestyle.

Beyond a simple adjustment

The chiropractic care at Regenerative Health & Wellness goes far beyond simple spinal adjustments. When it comes to treating our more active patients, we offer a number of different treatment techniques that address your spine, your joints, and your connective tissues. These therapeutic protocols include:

And, as our name suggests, we also offer innovative regenerative medicine treatments, including platelet-rich plasma and mesenchymal stem cell therapies. While these therapies aren’t used for preventive care, they’re there when you need them for fast healing and repair.

Increasing performance

Your body is an amazingly complex structure that relies on balance for optimal function. A seemingly small problem in your knee, for example, can have a widespread impact on your entire musculoskeletal system, forcing other areas of your body to compensate for the weakness.

We understand that no problem is too small when it comes to your overall performance, and regular chiropractic care allows us to address these minor issues immediately. By promptly solving the issue, we can restore the balance your body needs to perform at its best and avoid a much larger injury down the road.
