Chiropractic for Dancers
Regardless of age or skill level, dancers should also consider chiropractic care. Whether you’re pushing for a place in international competitions or you just enjoy a session or two each week, looking after your body is important and this is where a chiropractor can help.
WHY CHOOSE A CHIROPRACTOR?
Of course, one of the main features of chiropractic care is maintaining a healthy spine and this is the first area in which chiropractors can help dancers. With proper spinal alignment, the body has the right environment to enjoy training and competitions. Meanwhile, recovery is also more effective, and you won’t be aching for days afterwards.
Whether you are recovering from an injury, managing chronic pain, or just looking to improve your overall performance, chiropractic can help. With proper guidance and support, you can achieve your goals and be at your best both inside and outside the studio.
4 GOOD REASONS WHY DANCERS CAN BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC
1) OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE : BOOST STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
Firstly, dancing requires flexibility, strength, and free range of motion (and patience!). For those with very little experience in dancing, this can come as quite a surprise at first. With a well aligned spine you are set on a path of muscle strengthening. With the body in a healthy condition, the risk of injury reduces, you benefit from the improved flexibility, and your muscles and tendons won’t cause discomfort either during or after training or performing. Chiropractic care can help you move more freely and effortlessly, while providing a holistic and natural care that helps dancers achieve their full potential.
2) RELIEVE PAIN
Your chiropractor can use a variety of techniques, including chiropractic adjustments of the spine and joints, soft tissue therapy, and stretching exercises to help dancers relieve chronic or acute pain while achieving optimal health and performance.
3) PREVENTION OF PAIN AND INJURIES
Prevention is key, and it's essential to work closely with patients to help them develop healthy habits and avoid injuries in the future. If you’re feeling strained after dancing sessions, it could be symptomatic of a larger underlying issue which is something that should be explored and treated.
Your chiropractor's approach is rooted in a deep understanding of the anatomy and mechanics of dance, and utilizes this knowledge to prevent and treat injuries.
4) INJURY CARE
