By located and correcting these problematic joints chiropractors can help achieve your full potential of range of motion. From a golfer to a swimmer and even a quarterback loosing proper motion will impact your performance in a negative way.
By influence the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments your body can send important signals via the nervous system more efficiently. Releasing stress to your nervous system by removing interference allows your body to react quickly should your balance be tested.
When our joints and spine are in proper alignment we are able to maneuver with ease. For atheletes flexibility is extremely valuable.
Heightened Body Awareness
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to have positive effects on our proprioception. Proprioception is defined as the unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself. A good example of this is knowing the location of your hand by feel without actually being able to see it. This is an extremely important sense to have in nearly all sports.
