Chiropractic Treatment and the game of Basketball
Did you know that professional basketball players of all ages explore chiropractic treatment in order to unlock the many health benefits that come along with keeping your body calibrated and your spine in line.
Many professional basketball teams in the United States have team chiropractors who travel with the players to ensure they get the treatment and adjustments they need over the course of the NBA season and beyond.
Basketball has a way of beating up the body. Running and jumping on the hardwood or concrete courts we play on can take a toll on the joints, the lower back, not to mention the spine itself.
Over time, if you play the game hard and have no plan for your active recovery regiment, you’ll likely experience injuries and pains that will last you for the rest of your life.
Instead, one simple chiropractic treatment can do a world of good for an athlete and a basketball player in particular.
First, a chiropractic adjustment will straighten out the spine, helping your body and brain communicate more effectively, making you sharper on the court.
Chiropractic treatment will also help increase your flexibility and enhance your range of motion, which will certainly make you a more effective basketball player.
Lastly, a chiropractic adjustment has been shown to improve sleep, which will help you get the rest you need in order to do it all again tomorrow.
