Chiropractic can play a vital part of most sporting disciplines. For many years top athletes around the world has been taking advantage of the chiropractor’s knowledge of the body, and applied it to their regular training program.
So what can chiropractors do in sports? For the top athlete it is of crucial importance to keep in the best shape possible, not only through a fitness regime, but also through a healthy neuromusculoskeletal system.
Being able to use every inch of muscle power available can make or break a sporting career. The actual muscle power do not change much from day to day, but small misalignments in the joints, both in the spine and the extremities can reduce amount of muscle power available at that time.
Mechanoreceptors are found in tissues embedding all joints in the body. When these tissues get stretched, by a misalignments of the joints, it activates an inhibition or weakening of the adjacent muscles. Discovery of these weak muscles and correction of the misaligned joint to restore normal strength is the specialty of the CCEP doctor.
