How can chiropractic care greatly improve an active individual's or athletes health and lifestyle?
The ultimate impact of chiropractic care is to increase the health of the body as a whole. Various techniques can alleviate pain and reduce potential injury in several ways. While there are many different types of treatments that chiropractors perform on their patients, Ellen Sonnino’s report in US News and World Report discussed four methods that are often used to treat athletes:
Active Release Technique where massage and stretching are combined with moving the effected joint through a range of motion.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization many know by “Graston Technique” which is specific brand that uses stainless steel tools to break down scar tissue.
Acupuncture where deep trigger points are focused on to release tension in the muscles through stimulation.
Electrical muscle stimulation to release tension towards the surface of the muscle using contraction caused by electricity.
