Chiropractic Knoxville TN Football Player Pointing

Chiropractic care in Knoxville TN continues to become increasingly popular among athletes of all levels. Whether you are a high school cheerleader, a little league player, a collegiate swimmer, a mom who loves Zumba, a dad who likes to play golf or a professional football player, chiropractic care can help improve your performance, decrease pain, and help you recover from injuries faster.

Doctors of chiropractic are trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat biomechanical and pathological abnormalities in the spine and extremities. Through the use of various orthopedic and neurological testing, as well as diagnostic imaging, chiropractors are able to find areas in the body where joints may be misaligned, restricted, or injured. While there are many treatment modalities utilized by chiropractors, the one that is most common is the chiropractic adjustment.


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment in Knoxville TN?

A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which a chiropractor uses their hands or a small instrument to administer a small, quick thrust to a joint of the spine or extremity. There are many different adjusting techniques that allow chiropractors to adjust people of all ages, sizes, and health conditions. An adjustment helps joints and bones maintain proper alignment and range of motion. Adjustments also help to decrease nociception (pain signals going to the brain) and increase proprioception (awareness of body position/movement).

Chiropractic adjustments also help to take pressure off of spinal nerves that innervate various muscle groups in the body, specifically those on either side of the spine. Athletes put a tremendous amount of stress on their bodies and often times experience muscle fatigue, weakness, or spasm as a result. By allowing the spinal nerves to function optimally, chiropractic adjustments can help prevent muscle imbalances, as well as help athletes recover from muscular injuries.

If you are ready to take your game to the next level, consider beginning chiropractic care and gain an advantage on your competition. Check out what these athletes had to say about chiropractic care:

 - Tom Brady

“I’ve been going to a chiropractor for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
