Frequently Asked Questions About Sports Chiropractic Care
What is the science behind chiropractic care?
A chiropractic adjustment is the removal of pressure on the nervous system. Here’s an analogy – Dr. Eric LOVES analogies. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThink of a chiropractic adjustment working like a removing a kink in a water hose. When there is a kink in a hose, water cannot flow as needed to your plants – Remove the kink and water flows freely. When there is pressure from a misalignment at any level of the spine, the nervous system cannot send the information its needs to your organs, cells, and tissues – creating dis-ease in the body. When pressure along the spine is removed, information from the brain to all organs, cells, and tissues is restored!
Should I do chiropractic or physical therapy? What’s the difference?
Physical therapy and chiropractic care often have the same end goal but the modalities employed to reach the goal can often be quite different! Physical therapy is the treatment of injury or disease in the body through various modalities in order to restore function. A chiropractor’s focus will not necessarily be the injury itself – but instead be to remove pressure on the nervous system overall allowing the body itself to reestablish homeostasis. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThis returned homeostasis will allow our self-healing bodies to feel and function the best! Even when athletes are already feeling their best, they often will maintain regular chiropractic care! Regular care keeps the body functioning its best throughout an athlete’s season. A body functioning optimally is much less likely to suffer acute injury! All that said, Chiropractic and Physical therapy go hand in hand! Talk to the doctors about your specific questions!
