Dr. Trochim is the official chiropractor for Ferrum College athletics since 2014 and treats student athletes at their facility on a regular basis.
All major sports teams and Olympic committees employ team chiropractors to adjust coaches, staff and members of the team. They do not only adjust players who are injured or have pain in a certain area, they adjust everyone. Why would they adjust people who are not in pain? Remember, pain-free is not problem-free! When the spinal bones are not in the right position or lack normal motion it puts pressure on the nerves that come out between them inhibiting optimal nerve function. When chiropractic adjustments are administered in these areas determined to be subluxated, the nerves are allowed to function as close to 100% as possible.
Professional athletes, and athletes of all ages and stages for that matter, are looking for an edge over the competition. The nervous system is the master system of the body and controls all the functions of the systems, organs, and tissues. This includes strength, balance, and coordination. Chiropractic adjustments can ensure professional athletes have top physical conditioning to give them the edge they need to win.
Pain is not the only reason people seek chiropractic care; lots of people do it for better function. Ask yourself:
Is your nervous system working at 100% allowing you to function at top performance?
If you are questioning your nervous system’s ability in any way please give our office a call and we will be glad to help you answer any questions or resolve concerns you may have about chiropractic care and your personal condition.
