Chiropractic care helps them to restore function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Muscles, joints and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply and literally "take you out of the game".
Normalizing spinal function helps speed the healing of these soft tissues and reduce the deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines.
Whether you play golf, tennis, bicycle or football, the best treatment for sport injuries is prevention.
Spinal injuries restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and become increasingly popular. Professional sport teams, Olimpic trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractic doctors - because they demand results.
Few tips from Dr.Vasily:
- To play a sport you have to be fit for this sport, e.g. to golf you have to spend time muscle training, core stability training, balance training. We often see that people get stuck with one sport activity thinking, that it will get them fit. Your body doesn't work that way, it strives for balance.
- Sport injuries among youngsters are often ignored as "growing pains". Regular chiropractic checkups can help avoid problems seen later in adults.
- Problems can start with the spine and affect the extremities, or they can begin with an extremity, like knee or an ankle and then create further compensation problems in the spine. Either way, many sports-related injuries involve the spine.
- Proper spinal function is essential for peak performance at work and play.

Chiropractic is a safe, scientific and effective therapy for conditions of the spine
Chiropractic is a natural way of creating optimum spinal health, so that the nervous system can do its job.
A Chiropractor uses their hands to locate joints which are not moving properly and uses a quick impulse to free the joint so that it moves once more. This is called an adjustment. The muscles can then start to work normally and the spine will gradually return to its optimal working condition.
On your first visit, the chiropractor will ask about your problem, your medical and health history. Then they will carry out a detailed examination of the spine and nervous system (which may include X-rays). At the second visit, the cause of your problem will be explained in detail and on your agreement, treatment will commence.
