Not every athlete has the same needs when it comes to personal healthcare. Combining chiropractic care and sports therapy is a new method of preserving the human body. Ironwood Chiropractic of Richmond offers several different sports therapy treatment plans that will keep you healthy.
Choosing an active lifestyle helps to maintain your ideal weight. It keeps your bones intact and muscles fit at all times. An active lifestyle reduces the risk of major health issues such as heart disease and cancer. Unfortunately, a healthy lifestyle can easily be derailed by injury. If you are injured and want to get back to being active, consider sports therapy at Ironwood Chiropractic of Richmond.
The Value of Sports Therapy
Sports therapy helps athletes improve their overall performance in games by improving the effectiveness of their training. Chiropractic care helps reduce the risk of an injury occurring. If an injury occurs anyway, a sports therapy treatment program can speed up the recovery process.
This program treats common sports ailments like sprains, lower back pain, and other physical discomforts. The primary goal of sports therapy is treating musculoskeletal and nervous disorders. The treatment program is designed to prevent or rehabilitate an injury by using different massage techniques. Many athletes believe deep tissue massage helps them to perform at a higher level. Others love using the same approach as part of their recovery program following a training session or competition. The goal of sports therapy is to get an athlete's body back to full health as fast as possible.
The Combination of Chiropractic Care and Sports Therapy
The key to combining chiropractic care and sports therapy is a solid line of communication between the chiropractor and the patient. For the treatment to be as successful as possible, the chiropractic adjustment and sports therapy massage must complement one another.
The order of the treatment should be a sports therapy massage followed by a chiropractic adjustment and stretching program. This approach loosens tight muscles and prevents bones from popping out of place.
