be injured while playing a favorite sport. When injuries occur, they require
attention. Dr. Banker offers help for sports injuries.
The weekend athlete is often more susceptible to injury than the pro when
playing a sport. Injuries can occur during all sports. Even athletes who take a
great deal of care in preparation for the game may find that injuries cannot be
avoided. The requirements for physical movement and muscle work to take part in
the activity put the athlete at greater risk for injury. To ensure proper
healing of the injury, chiropractors offer the needed care.
Even athletes who take the proper precautions and put on protective gear may
still suffer injury. Taking time for warm ups, stretching, and ensuring one is
in good physical condition may help. However, many times, injuries are related
to playing too fast, too long, or too hard. With chiropractic care, athletes
receive a balanced approach to healing. Chiropractic adjustments help to return
the segments of the spine to their normal position and restore mobility.
Chiropractic doctors also work to return normal function to the tissues that
support the spine, including ligaments, tendons and muscles.
Many professional athletic teams use chiropractic care as a way to maximize
performance. College teams use the care to help athletes heal more quickly from
injuries suffered on the field. The armchair quarterback may also benefit from
care if he strains muscles when stretching for the remote.
The chiropractic goal in care is to restore the body to spinal health. A
Singapore chiropractor can help those suffering from sports injuries. Weekend
athletes receive the same quality health care that has become popular with
professional and college teams.
