Sports Chiropractor in Kyle …. it’s NOT just for the Professionals!
As chiropractic care has grown in popularity over the past twenty years it is now utilized by every professional football, baseball, basketball, hockey team and most other professional athletes in gymnastics, dance, tennis, golf and soccer too. The benefits of the chiropractic adjustment and sports performance are no longer a secret! It was once used by just a few teams to gain a competitive edge but now it’s also used by most college programs too.
Here’s how it works…by having the entire spine- neck, mid back, low back and pelvis moving properly it can maintain proper biomechanics which allows for better movement and prevents injury. When one part of the spine loses proper movement or range of motion it will cause more stress on another part of the spine thus increasing the chance of sports injury, repetitive strain, or back pain. So it’s a great tool for injury prevention!
Finding the best chiropractor near you can improve performance in ANY sport! The spinal bones are the protection for the spinal cord and nerves (central nervous system). When the spine has optimal alignment and movement it will relieve stress on the nerves so they can function at 100%. Nerves that work at the highest level help you with coordination, reflexes, reaction time, spatial awareness and overall neurological function. Chiropractic is the #1 treatment for these benefits.
Now let’s talk about recovery. When an injury does occur there is more work placed on the nerves to signal the necessary factors for healing the injured area. This holds true for the neck, back, knee, shoulder, etc. When the nerves can perform this function since they are running at 100% (due to the better spinal alignment and movement) then they are able to send these healing factors quicker. Athletes (and weekend warriors) who receive a chiropractic adjustment on a regular basis also recover from injuries quicker and stronger than when their spine in not already in good shape.

Since moving to Kyle our office still performs sports chiropractic for athletes of all levels- some of them are current or former professional athletes, others are college athletes of various sports from Texas State, University of Texas, Texas A&M, St. Edwards. We see athletes from Hays and Lehman High Schools, each middle school and younger too. Some of our patients are ‘occupational athletes’ who are dependent on their body to provide a living including construction workers, massage therapists, yoga instructors, police and firemen, electricians, landscapers and many more. Many of our athletes are normal people who want to be able to golf, lift weights, bike, run and live an active lifestyle. We love to help people do what they love! It’s one of the most rewarding parts about being a Chiropractor!
