Playing sports can put your body at risk of having numerous injuries that can lead to chronic pain. Even if you are not injured, wear and tear on your joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons can cause damage and discomfort that affect your performance. Find out about the advantages of seeing our chiropractor for athletes in Marin County.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Improved Performance

Our chiropractors, Dr. Sydne Pomin and Dr. Andrea Cavalla, provide chiropractic adjustments that can help athletes improve their performance in various ways. These adjustments realign the spine and other joints, which help heal soft tissue damage, reduce inflammation and improve blood flow. Correcting problems with misaligned joints also lowers the risk of having injuries turn into sources of chronic pain.

Advantages of Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Athletes in Marin County who undergo chiropractic care typically have injuries that end up healing faster, since adjustments promote the natural healing process. This type of care can help heal a wide range of injuries, including those that affect the spine, neck, arms, legs, knees and other areas.

Chiropractic care also helps athletes improve mobility, making it easier for them to run, jump, pivot and perform other movements while playing or practicing. This type of care also helps ease and prevent headaches, shoulder pain and common sports injuries that affect athletes, such as torn ligaments. Chiropractic care gives players a safer way to heal from injuries since it involves using a drug-free approach.

Other Treatment Options for Athletes

Our chiropractors might also recommend other forms of treatment for athletes, such as cold laser therapy and vibration therapy. Cold laser therapy uses energy from cool lasers to promote healing and ease the pain, while vibration therapy helps ease joint pain and muscle soreness.
