How Spinal Health Helps Athletes Perform at Their Best

As a chiropractor for sciatica and leg pain near Redwood City, CA, I’ve witnessed how spinal health is essential to athletes. Not only does it help prolong their playing careers, but it also keeps them performing at their best.

Play It Safe

You have probably seen a sporting event on TV or have attended one where the players were warming up beforehand. Keeping your muscles flexible and loose is essential whenever you take part in these activities. This is one thing you can do to be safe. 

Spinal care covers many aspects, and that includes regular visits to a professional. Upper cervical chiropractors, in particular, will make sure the bones of the upper neck are in proper alignment.

Here are just some of the benefits of a healthy spine:

  • Quicker recovery from injury
  • Improved response time
  • Better balance
  • Increased speed
  • Improved agility

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care and Spinal Health

The brainstem is the communication highway of the body that carries signals to and from the brain and body. The C1 and C2 vertebrae are there to protect the brainstem from damage.

If one of these bones misaligns, it can put undue stress on the brainstem. This can lead to a variety of health problems throughout the body, such as balance issues, headaches, and even fibromyalgia. 

Here in my clinic, Advanced Spinal Care, I aim to ensure optimal spine health to enable your brainstem and the rest of the central nervous system to perform at its peak. I use gentle, yet precise methods to realign the upper cervical vertebrae if they move out of place.
