Fitness is made up of 3 things. Strength, Stamina, and Teamwork. Injury can be in any or all of these three components of Fitness.
Professional athletes , athletic individuals, occasional athletes, from very fit to getting fit can be susceptible to musculoskeletal and spinal pain and injuries at one time or another.
Yes there are injuries of tissue tears and bones breaking yet there are many injuries that do not go that far and yet they will continue to interfere with feeling strong and with your performance. Or you may have had tears and/or a break and not ever recovered all that you had before that injury. The Teamwork category of Fitness is often overlooked in recovery efforts. Chiropractic evaluation and skillsets address this reestablishing the Teamwork of the muscles that must be addressed to the best recovery .
Chiropractors use an integrated system to evaluate the injury using an overall functional evaluation of individual muscles and individual nerves evaluating each as to their function to themselves and to each other. In that form of evaluation we have the information needed to help the patient’s joints muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their teamwork function. And these days concussion is recognized as both a frequent accompaniment to injury and one that responds to hyperbaric treatment. Neck injury symptoms can mimic concussion symptoms. Chiropractors can recognize the difference and yet have the tools to treat both types of injuries towards restoration.
Lets take this moment to talk about KNEES. This joint is the go between of the torso/hip to the calves/ankles/feet. Of course you say. I know where it is located. Yet in calling out its location like I did I want to point out that any tight calf, tight hamstring, twisted hip, drawn up shoulder, tight ribcage, ankle injury still tight years later, will transfer as asymmetrical pulling on this go between we call the KNEE. By addressing Function and Teamwork as we do here at our clinic, we have great success relieving knee pain. We call it the most wrongfully accused body part. Yes...the MRI/xray may show a joint that is worn or damaged. And from those pictures we assume those changes are the reason for our knee pain. At our clinic we have seen time and time again that they are not necessarily the cause of knee pain, just a demonstration of wear and tear from forces above and below that are pulling constantly asymmetrically .
Our Olympic athletes lobbied hard to get chiropractic care in the Olympic Medical Team years ago as it proved itself capable of keeping the athletes in top form both in restorative as well as injury prevention .
