Chiropractic Care for

Weekend Warriors

For many of us, life is busy, and it can be hard to squeeze in time for exercise or physical activity for leisure. As a response to this, many people focus their activity on weekends. These so-called “weekend warriors” may do anything from playing in a casual sports league to rock climbing or running marathons in their spare time. For those who have free time only on weekends, this is a great strategy to ensure that you are staying healthy and being active whenever possible. The risk involved in being a weekend warrior comes about when you consider that weekends only happen sporadically. Exercising very little throughout the week and then seriously exerting yourself on weekends can leave you susceptible to injuries that may be avoided by well-paced, moderate exercise. However, being active on the weekends is far better than not being active at all, and if you concentrate on only one or two vigorous activities each weekend, seeking care from a Marietta Chiropractor can be important to ensure you avoid injury and stay as healthy as possible.

Risks for Weekend Warriors

Even for the most in-shape athlete, injuries can occur and be devastating. But for weekend warriors whose activity isn’t as regular or consistent, more issues can arise. There may be underlying issues that haven’t presented themselves yet, such as joint restrictions or dysfunctions, that only show up after a particularly vigorous workout, causing muscle imbalance and injury. The body resting all week and then undergoing heavy stress at one time is likely to make these issues appear. Another common issue is using gym equipment improperly or utilizing improper form in your exercises, both of which can cause injury. And just like in professional sports, the most common injury can be caused by traumatic force, like torn ligaments, breaks, or sprains. Any of these issues can arise when a body is pushed beyond its usual capacity and is not properly prepared or capable of handling that force.

The Importance of Chiropractic Care

The importance of chiropractic care
Chiropractic care helps bodies to be more flexible, more coordinated, and more limber. Undergoing regular adjustments should be part of a health maintenance routine that facilitates a more effective workout when the time does come. Even professional athletes who practice every day rely on chiropractic adjustments to prevent injuries. And, when injuries do happen, the chiropractor is also a go-to for weekend warriors and other athletes. Chiropractors are trained to assess, diagnose, and address injuries, helping to determine and relieve the cause of your pain. If there are any underlying issues that contributed to the injuries, an adjustment is likely to help these as well. Much like stretching your body before working out can prepare it, a chiropractic adjustment makes your body optimally healthy, whether you’ve already suffered an injury or are preventing one.
