A Simple Way to Optimize Your Workout

As chiropractors, we know the importance of a healthy musculoskeletal system—especially when it comes to exercise! To optimize your workout (no matter your sport or workout of choice!), your muscles, joints, ligaments and cartilage have to be in peak shape.

Here’s how chiropractic adjustments and therapies can help you stay injury- and accident-free, so you can keep exercising the way you love!

Sports and Exercise Injuries in the United States

According to a study from the CDC, around 8.6 million Americans suffer from a sports, exercise and recreation-related injury each year. Most often, sports and exercise injuries are the result of:

  • Contact Trauma
  • Overuse
  • Repetitive Motions
  • Poor Form

These types of injuries can affect the health of your entire musculoskeletal system. This makes it harder to achieve your peak performance, delaying recovery times and often resulting in pain and strain in your everyday life.

4 Benefits to Pre-Performance Chiropractic Care

So, what can you do to avoid injury and optimize your workout? 

Whether a seasoned athlete or someone who regularly exercises, chiropractic ensures you have properly functioning muscles, bones, joints and more. There’s a reason so many professional athletes and teams utilize preventative chiropractic care. 

According to the American Chiropractic Association, “Experts estimate that roughly 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential.” This includes all NFL teams! Also, up to 77 percent of athletic trainers refer players to chiropractors for treatment. 

Regular chiropractic care, especially before working out, can lead to:

  • A lessened risk of accident and injury
  • Increased strength, flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduced wear and tear on joints and muscles
  • Ensured peak alignment for optimal performance
