There are more than eight million student athletes throughout the United States who participate in sports such as football, baseball, and soccer. Although it’s wonderful that participation in high school sports continues to rise, all of this activity increases the risk of potential injuries.
It’s common for people to visit their doctor after they sustain some kind of illness or injury. At AICA Atlanta, one of our primary goals is to provide education on the fantastic value of Chiropractic and proactive treatment – which is why we recommend care before symptoms appear.
Consider the following information that highlights how regular Chiropractic care for student athletes helps protect them from possible injuries and keeps them on the field. If you are the parent of a student athlete, we encourage you to visit our office for a free consultation. You and your child can learn more about our approach to helping student athletes maintain a balanced system that supports peak performance. Call us today to schedule an appointment – (404) 889-8828.
Our Atlanta Chiropractors are trained to diagnose potential health concerns before they develop into some kind of chronic condition or worsen. This is one of the reasons why it’s helpful for student athletes to have a Chiropractor evaluate their condition throughout each sport’s season, not only when an accident takes place on the field.
Because of how resilient teenagers are, it can be difficult to tell whether or not your student athlete is suffering from an injury or everyday aches. Subluxations, which refer to misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine, can develop over years without producing symptoms. If left untreated, subluxations have the potential to develop into degenerative conditions or bone spurs. Regular Chiropractic Treatment gives your student athlete the opportunity to identify and treat conditions like subluxations before they have an effect on their performance.
As your high school student athlete goes through their fall, winter and spring sports schedule, consider bringing them to AICA Atlanta’s Chiropractic Clinic for regular checkups and spinal examinations. Doing so will help protect them from potential injuries, keep their bodies flexible, and improve their overall performance.
