Chiropractic for swimmers

Swimmers often undergo very strenuous training, especially if the performance to be followed is that of a professional athlete attending competitions. Training several times a day, exercising in and out of the water, doing double sessions, among other things are part of a swimmer’s daily routine. Certainly, the wear and tear can be physical, which, if left unattended, can generate various complications that could affect athletic performance.

Being a sprint and/or distance swimmer, you can easily rack up miles and miles in a single training session. It is for this reason that these types of athletes often develop symptoms of pain and repetitive stress or overuse injuries, the kind that is present in sports with repetitive or cyclical movements. If these ailments are not treated in time they can become chronic conditions.

This is where chiropractic comes in, a medical specialty that understands not only sports techniques, but also the clinical aspects of prevention, treatment, and the athlete’s return to sports practice.

By following evidence-based protocols, a chiropractor is able to perform different therapeutic techniques in order to:

  • Stabilize joints.
  • Strengthen muscles.
  • Expand articular range of motion.
  • Decrease perceived pain.
  • Improve neurological control.
  • Correct posture.
  • Among many other things.

Regular chiropractic care is able to help swimmers prevent and correctly treat risk factors associated with musculoskeletal injuries, decreasing the likelihood of developing pain, inflammation, or cessation of sporting activity as such.
