6 Reasons Why You Should Seek Chiropractic Care Before, During, and After Super Bowl Sunday
Chiropractic care isn’t just for the NFL, although it’s estimated that 61 percent of football players seek out chiropractic care both to treat pain from injury and prevent future injury. Chiropractic care can aid in boosting energy levels, improving circulation, stimulating the immune system, decreasing stress and inflammation, restoring optimal postural alignment, increasing quality of sleep, and enhancing overall wellness and vitality. Below are 6 reasons why you should seek chiropractic care for benefits that will last before, during, and after Super Bowl Sunday:
1. Chiropractic care can help you feel limber.
Prior to the big game, it’s important to feel as limber as possible. Party preparations, decorating, cooking, and a host of other activities are best accomplished when you feel spry and agile.
Chiropractic care plays a major role in helping improve circulation in the body. Expert chiropractic treatment affects the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes the nervous system, the muscular system, and the skeletal system. By stimulating these systems through hands-on treatment, the joints, muscles, and nerves are able to detox from cellular waste and absorb new nutrients and oxygen.
Receiving a chiropractic treatment prior to the big game will ensure that your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves are functioning at full capacity, and are refreshed from any stagnance.
2. Chiropractic care can help you be pain-free.
Whether you’re barbequing, serving a multi-course meal, or simply planning to sit down and enjoy Super Bowl Sunday, chiropractic care can help you do it comfortably.
Common ailments that affect the neuromusculoskeletal system include pinched nerves, torn or tense muscles, misalignment in the bones and joints, and general stiffness and discomfort. Chiropractic care is an effective form of treatment for all of these conditions, and can help to reduce the inflammation in muscles and joints that leads to pain in the nerves.
When the joints are experiencing subluxation (misalignment), this can cause the surrounding area to become inflamed. Subluxated joints often press on nearby tissue and nerves, creating a variety of different pain sensations. This can include sharp pain, aching pain, stabbing pain, throbbing pain, dull or temperature-like (hot or cold) pain, and more.
By returning joints to their optimal positions, this can help to reduce or completely eliminate pain and discomfort, as well as relieve the strain on muscles that often become tense in an attempt to compensate for misaligned joints.
3. Chiropractic care can help you be energetic.
The Super Bowl typically lasts for about four hours, so it’s important to have sustained energy that can help to make the experience enjoyable and engaging.
Patients who receive chiropractic care report that they feel a significant and sustained boost in energy after each session. This happens for several reasons. Chiropractic treatment helps to boost the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to the brain. CSF protects the brain from impact and allows it to absorb nutrients and oxygen from the bloodstream. The increase in CSF flow to the brain can stimulate the brain’s capacity for clearer cognition and better function.
Additionally, chiropractic care restores nerve energy in the body. Nerve energy is the electrical current that flows through the body’s nervous system, connecting from the brain and spine to the body’s extremities. When the spinal cord is treated, as well as specific areas where nerves may be inflamed and constricted, this allows a surge of new nerve energy to flow without restriction.
4. Chiropractic care can help you feel focused.
During the game, you’ll want to be attentive and wide awake. In addition to providing sustainable energy through the body as a result of the increase in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and nerve energy, chiropractic care can also lead to an increase in cognitive function and performance.
By realigning the spine and posture, chiropractic care can help to increase the efficiency of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. These two systems work in tandem to circulate oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. When the spine is misaligned, the posture and rib cage can constrict the lungs and the heart and impede the effectiveness of those systems.
Chiropractic treatment can immediately help to improve the performance and health of the body’s systems by reducing pressure on the organs and nerves, relaxing and regulating the nervous system, decreasing stress and inflammation, and loosening tight or tense muscles.
5. Chiropractic care can help increase your flexibility.
NFL players aren’t the only ones who need an adjustment after Super Bowl Sunday—viewers are doing their own fair share of jumping, standing, and cheering!
Chiropractic treatment can aid in increasing your flexibility. The stiffness that can set into joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body can be reduced through chiropractic care. By realigning the body’s skeletal structure, as well as soft tissue manipulation and other forms of treatment, homeostasis, relaxation, and optimal function can be restored.
6. Chiropractic care can help you stay healthy.
