Athletic training can create strain and stress on your body, which can be an issue since your body was designed to move freely. When your body is out of alignment the muscles can cramp and spasm, reduce your range of motion and make training painful and more difficult to physically complete. When an athlete sees a chiropractor to remove those interferences, they will notice their tension decrease while their mobility and range of motion increase. As an athlete, seeing a chiropractor routinely will remove any interference that is preventing you from performing at your best. After those interferences are removed you will notice the tension in your body decrease while your mobility and range of motion increase. It can also improve your form because your muscles are loose and not strained from the nerve interference.
If an athlete does get injured, their body will try to compensate and protect them while they fight inflammation and the misalignment, this ends up with them sitting on the bench instead of training. Chiropractic adjustments can help speed the recovery process by decreasing the inflammation and removing the misalignments to help aid your body in a faster recovery.
