Sports Injuries are Surprisingly Preventable

Sports chiropractor alameda

It’s been said that every setback leaves behind a path to make your comeback

But what if we could avoid that setback in the first place? As athletes push their bodies to new extremes, they leave themselves vulnerable to a host of injuries which threaten to derail their momentum. Our job as an office of chiropractic is to keep the chance of such an injury as low as possible. At our office in Alameda, we have helped hundreds of athletes from the whole spectrum of sports to specialize and strengthen their bodies against the risk factors of their chosen sport. We do this by identifying and correcting the underlying causes of injury which lurk in all of our bodies. 


Helping athletes stay ahead of the injury curve in Alameda

When an athlete comes to our office for the first time, here is what we look for:

  • Structural misalignment of the spine
  • Systemic misalignment and muscular imbalance
  • Reduced range of motion in the spinal joints
  • Poor biomechanics and posture

These are the internal factors that conspire to leave your body vulnerable to injury. No matter how strong or specialized your body is for your sport, spinal misalignment can prevent you from achieving optimal performance. Motor control relies on optimal functioning of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, both of which form the focus of our treatment as an office of chiropractic.

Chiropractic helps you gain the edge over your competition

At our office in Alameda, we seek to help athletes: 

  • Maximize their natural advantage
  • Keep their body ahead of injury
  • Mitigate the net impact of wear and tear

We believe that the best way to do this is using natural modalities and being proactive about preventing injury. If you are interested in finding out more about chiropractic applications in sports performance, give us a call to schedule an appointment today.
