Everything Is Connected

When you visit Herrmann Family Chiropractic as an athlete you’ll undergo the same first and second visit process as any other patient. The difference is that Dr. Eric will keep in mind the sport you play and how everything is connected.

Why does he consider this? Not only can your spine be adjusted but so can your extremities. These include your wrists, knees, ankles, shoulders, and elbows which are general worry spots for athletes. It’s important to have your body fully checked and to have your full body working optimally!

Chiropractic adjustments can help ensure that the body functions at its fullest potential by removing nerve interference which can allow the body to heal and recover more efficiently from various types of injuries. After an injury occurs, it is important to have the involved extremities checked along with the spine. Like the spine, the extremities are allowed to function as designed to when everything is in alignment and able to move without pain and/or restriction.

Be at the Top of Your Game

Remember, chiropractic for athletes isn’t just about relieving pain from injuries; it’s also about keeping your body working the best that it can so that you can perform the best that you can! In fact, chiropractic helps famous athletes such as Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Spieth, and the U.S. summer and winter olympic teams stay at the top of their game. “Chiropractic is an essential tool to keep athletes performing at their very best,” says Dr. Eric.
