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 the chiropractic adjustment is administered in these areas determined to be subluxated, the nerves are allowed to function as close to 100% as possible. Professional athletes, and athletes at all ages and stages for that matter, are looking for that edge over the competition. Remember, 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…things all professional athletes need to be as high as possible and will give them that competitive edge. So pain is not the only reason people seek chiropractic care; lots of people do it for better function. So ask yourself these questions: is your nervous system working at 100% allowing you to function the way you want to? If you have any questions about that at all then give our office a call and we will be glad to clear up any questions or concerns you may have about chiropractic care and your conditions specifically.
