If you haven’t been paying attention to the latest news in the health and wellness industry, Philip Ricardo Jr. known as Mr. Natural Olympia and the King of Natural Bodybuilding speaks about his experience with chiropractic care at RxWellness Spine & Health, and how it has helped him in his bodybuilding career. He leverages this natural method to enable him to be at his peak endurance and strength to train and recover to prepare for his competitions and daily life. Chiropractic is his “Natural drug of choice”.
Chiropractic Care is Natural
Chiropractic care focuses on the health of the spine and the spinal cord. Chiropractors are trained to manipulate the spine with their hands and other tools to realign the spine. It is completely holistic, minimal to no discomfort, and drug free. Regular chiropractic care has been to known to help prevent certain spinal surgeries and other avoidable injuries.
Chiropractic Care Can Help Prevent Injury
It is impossible to completely prevent all injuries, so the best thing any athlete can do is practice proper technique and correct form. Some of these tips below can help you play longer and go further without injury. Some injury prevention tips include:
- Wearing appropriate gear for your specific sport
- Work on strengthening your muscles
- Increasing your flexibility
- Listen to pain and give your body time to recover
- Practice the correct technique
The best form of injury prevention is fitting chiropractic care into your rigid workout schedule. The athletes that play longer, go further, and remain uninjured are the athletes that see chiropractic care as a necessary collaboration as opposed to a luxury consultation. Chiropractic care keeps your body in the best possible position to avoid injury by improving flexibility, correcting spinal misalignments, and enhancing joint health. Basically, chiropractic care works by helping your body function better.
Chiropractic Care for Sports Injury
Professional athletes or weekend warriors that expose themselves to high levels of performance stress need to work with a quality chiropractic team if they want to be playing long-term. Chiropractic care has many benefits for all types of people, but can be the difference between an athlete going pro or retiring early due to an injury. Chiropractic care can improve athletic performance by improving the body’s ability to better handle stress. For example, regular adjustments can increase range of motion, increase flexibility, and improve joint health.
A rigorous exercise regime can place heavy stress on your spine and joints. Without regular adjustments, the pressure will eventually shift your body from its natural alignment into a space of compromised movement. The body works best when it’s stable and aligned, but spinal misalignment can cause the back muscles to compensate for the shift by stretching or shortening in an attempt to better stabilize the spine.
This shift will happen gradually and will result in a lot of pain. This can also put you in a position to be easily injured. For example, if the back muscles are already stretched to their max to provide stability to the spine, then it places them in a position to be easily torn if they are hit with the right amount of impact. This can result in permanent life-altering damages. When the muscles provide support to an unstable area, those muscles are in a constant state of flux and can be the source of chronic back pain. While this can be very agonizing, it is a much better alternative to leaving the spine unsupported.
