Chiropractor season in Charlotte
Chiropractors are increasingly busy as we are deep into football season. As fun we may find it to watch, whether it is the professionals, high school, or the local little league team, this is the time of year when injuries tend to pile on (no pun intended). Chiropractic treatment can help football players and fans alike. Read on to see the benefits of chiropractic care for football players.
Chiropractic care helps joints function properly
Joints are the natural connection between two bones. As simple as that may sound, our joints are quite complex. They are comprised of fibrous materials, are full of fluid to allow smooth movement, held together by connective tissue, and hold a network of blood vessels that bring nutrition to the structure. When our joints are functioning optimally, everyone benefits. Players are able to perform, and spectators are able to watch comfortably.
Chiropractor treatment improves player mobility
The joints of the body vary to allow for different types of movement. For example, our hip joints are designed to extend and flex, which is important for running on the field, and for those seated in the bleachers. The shoulder joint is designed to facilitate every motion that provides movement of our arms; from throwing a football to fans giving each other “high-fives” in celebration. Regular chiropractic adjustments and stretches can overcome the stiffness of sore joints, allowing the body to play (or celebrate plays) with a full range of motion.
Keeping joints hydrated
The joints in your body are highly dependent on fluid. Every cell in the human body requires, water. Players and fans should drink plenty of water, especially when it is warmer. Spectators should be drinking half their body weight in ounces per day. Athletes require an even greater amount of fluids as they expend lots of energy and sweat during practice and in games. Proper hydration helps joints to stay properly lubricated.
