By now, most professional athlete’s and sports fans know that chiropractic care is important to maintaining proper health and fitness to perform at optimal levels. But just as importantly, if not more so, weekend warriors and amateur athletes should be visiting their chiropractor as well. The pro’s have entire teams of health professionals watching out for their well being, and the average athlete should take the same concern for their fitness health.

Weekend warriors have the best of intentions in spending their free time engaging in athletic events and keeping active through exercise. Unfortunately, a great many of them spend their entire work week not very active at all. Perhaps they are sitting behind a desk or in meetings every day, and in the evenings they are parked on the couch watching whatever sporting event they can find on the television. They are probably very sedentary all week. Then to jump up on Saturday morning, throw on the tennis shoes and take off for some basketball at the gym, or hit the golf course for a quick 9 holes, their body just isn’t ready to quickly adjust for that activity. That lifestyle is a recipe for sore muscles and painful injuries.

Chiropractic care helps your body to be more flexible and increases coordination. Following good nutritional advice, often including nutritional supplements, and keeping a regular exercise regimen during the week can help keep injuries at bay while you play on the weekend! Sports are competitive, and the pro’s know that regular adjustments can actually lead to performance enhancement! Your chiropractor can assist you with finding the right plan for you, as well as help recover from past injuries, and prevent future injuries. In addition to your chiropractic visits, stretching every day and doing some sort of exercise daily is key to your weekend success.
