Whether you swim competitively or to stay fit, holistic chiropractic care can reduce aches and pains and minimize injuries, no matter your age.

Why Swimmers Choose to Incorporate Chiropractic Care


1. Injury Prevention: Swimmers often engage in repetitive motions, particularly in their shoulders, back, and neck. These repetitive movements can sometimes lead to misalignments or imbalances. Regular chiropractic care can help maintain proper alignment, potentially reducing the risk of injuries.


2. Enhanced Performance: Proper alignment and biomechanics can lead to better water posture, improved stroke efficiency and power, and faster swimming times.


3. Relief from "Swimmer's Shoulder": This is a common ailment among swimmers, caused by the overuse and strain of the shoulder muscles and tendons. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies can help relieve the tension and pain associated with this condition.


4. Improved Flexibility: A chiropractor can work on joint mobilizations, enhancing a swimmer's range of motion. Enhanced flexibility can improve stroke reach and efficiency.


5. Spinal Health: The flip turns, strokes, and kicks can stress the spine. Regular adjustments help maintain the spine's health, ensuring it remains supple and aligned.


6. Faster Recovery: Intense training sessions can lead to muscle soreness and fatigue. Chiropractic care can promote better blood circulation and help alleviate muscle tension, potentially leading to faster recovery between sessions.


7. Improved Breathing: Proper neck and thoracic spine alignment can lead to more efficient breathing. Efficient breathing is crucial for swimmers as it directly impacts their stamina and performance.


8. Holistic Approach: Dr. Jerry offers nutrition, stretching, and general well-being advice. This holistic approach can provide swimmers with comprehensive care that addresses multiple aspects of their health and performance.


9. Reduced Reliance on Pain Medication: By addressing the root causes of pain or discomfort, chiropractic care can reduce a swimmer's reliance on pain medications, which can have side effects or be detrimental to performance.


10. Enhanced Proprioception: Chiropractic care can improve the body's sense of position in space (proprioception). Enhanced proprioception can lead to better body awareness in the water, improving stroke technique.
