Soccer is hugely popular Colorado Springs and across the US.  Soccer combines aerobic fitness and coordination which is a great way to get some exercise and burn off stress.  The soccer ball can take on the persona of someone who is giving you trouble and you can really let them have it in a healthy way.

More and more soccer players have a touch of grey in the temples and are finding it harder to recover and play at the same level.  Aging players are also more prone to injury as the body can’t withstand the same amount of stress that it once did.

Professional soccer players are prolonging their careers with the help of regular chiropractic care.  It has become a normal part of their training regimen to keep them in top form, competing at their highest level and to avoid injury.   You can get the same benefit.

If you are injured while playing or simply have an overuse injury due to repetitive motion, chiropractic care can help rehab injury. With the exception of concussions and fractures, chiropractic is a strong choice for supportive or rehabilitative treatment for all injuries.

Soccer players of any age and ability tend to be prone to two main types of injury.  Those caused from contact from the ball or other players and the running aspect of the game.  Typically, these injuries happen in the lower extremities, although concussion is a common injury.

In many cases, sports injuries can be prevented or the severity reduced when they happen. Proper conditioning, warm-up and cool-down procedures, and techniques can go a long way toward preventing injuries.  Being aware of the field conditions and having proper gear are also important.

Preventative chiropractic treatment can help you avoid injury and greatly enhance performance on the field.  Soccer players who receive regular chiropractic alignments report fewer injuries and pain as well as more comfort during playing time. The better you feel, the better you perform during a game.

So if you have been playing for soccer for a long time and want to stay strong, active and up your game, consider regular chiropractic care.
