Do you take your health seriously? Rely on Dr. Matt DeVreugd at Almond Leaf Chiropractic to do so too. Your treatment program may include athletic performance exercises to strengthen weakened muscles and improve overall spinal health. Many athletes put in the hours to exercise, but may not be doing the movements correctly. Some muscles may be overcompensating and others may be at risk for injury due to repetitive stress. We can help identify and address any issues in biomechanical functioning and more.
Learn how to reduce potential discomfort and inflammation, support the healing of injured areas and decrease the likelihood of developing common athletic injuries at Almond Leaf Chiropractic.
Athletic Performance Exercises
Dr. Matt DeVreugd at Almond Leaf Chiropractic offers a range of non-surgical services to patients. Children in sports activities as well as professional athletes benefit from the extensive experience of our staff. Our athletic performance exercises can help:
- Improve function and mobility in injured areas;
- Reduce discomfort;
- Assist in supporting optimal development in growing bodies;
- Address developmental issues that may impact spinal health;
- Help improve performance; and
- Prevent overuse of specific muscles and joints.
Flexibility activities and lower extremity exercises can go a long way to prevent injuries that can not only force an athlete to miss a few games but impact their career longevity. Don’t get cut short by a career-ending injury. Special exercises can help you avoid many common injuries, such as an ACL sprain or tear. A torn ACL can require reconstructive surgery, postoperative rehab and therapeutic exercise. Use therapeutic exercise and spinal rehab to avoid severe injuries and ensure that hard-working joints have optimal support from the surrounding musculature.
Athletic performance exercises can help manage a specific condition or support overall athletic performance. Many exercises may be incorporated into an injury prevention program or be used in postoperative recovery.
Support for Young Athletes and Weekend Warriors
Developing children and their parents may be unaware of the potential for serious injury in sports and athletic endeavors. Weekend warriors may also need to know about how to avoid common injuries when planning a game of touch football, or take in 36-holes. Some of the most common sports injuries include:
- Tennis elbow
- An ACL tear
- Shin splints
- Hamstring strain
- Groin pull
- Ankle strain
Overused muscles or those stretched beyond their limit can easily tear, resulting in discomfort and inflammation. In many cases, it is possible to prevent common sports injuries. Getting in proper shape for the specific activity can help reduce the potential for injury. Younger athletes and those returning to a sport or activity may want to use preventative and therapeutic exercises for strengthening and conditioning.
