Keys to Improving Your Sports Performance and Recovery

muscle recoveryAre you looking to step up to the next level in your activity or sport? Or wanting to overcome an injury and get back on your feet in the shortest time possible? There are many simple actions we can adopt in our everyday lives to enhance our performance and recovery with the first being preparation. Preparing yourself in the right manner is going to be key, in boosting your level of performance or increasing your recovery time. Preparing for these two key components can be as simple as:

  • Ensuring you’re organised
  • Studying the literature surrounding your performance
  • Studying different treatment modalities involved with your condition
  • Developing a daily plan e.g. calendar

Chiropractic has also been highly effective when enhancing the performance and the recovery of patients. Chiropractors check the alignment of the shoulders and pelvis, correct any postural abnormalities that may be present and can guide you in choosing the correct footwear to assist you in your recovery or improving your performance levels. Chiropractors also improve performance and recovery by fixing any restrictions in the joints, correct any muscle imbalances and providing you with treatment as soon as possible to prevent delay in the recovery of injuries.

There are many other factors that can improve your recovery and performance including:

  • Ice baths
  • Heat packs
  • Making sure you’re getting the adequate amount of sleep
  • Staying physically active
  • Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Stretching
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Supplementation such as Vit B and magnesium

These treatment modalities combined together have shown great improvements in the performance and recovery of patients. Combining a few of these with chiropractic have been highly beneficial in the recovery of patient’s injuries in the shortest time possible and helps to prevent inactivity for too long. Chiropractors focus on addressing the main area of complaint and devise stretching and strengthening exercises to help manage and prevent the condition from reoccurring in the future. It’s a great measure employed to promote optimal recovery and performance levels and enhance patient’s overall lifestyle.
