Gymnastics Injuries

Gymnastics Injuries Douglasville

Tumbling. Vaulting. 10-point landings. They all point to one thing - the eventual need for Chiropractic Care. If you or someone you know has new or nagging gymnastics injuries, call Planet Chiropractic!

Gymnastics - Elite Athletics Require Elite Athlete Care

Few competitive sports require as much dedication and individual discipline as gymnastics. Truly one of the most demanding of all the individual competitive sports, gymnastics is just as demanding on the body of a gymnast as it is on their mental fortitude. The body mechanics involved in almost any competitive gymnastic activity is much more intense than an average athlete would be able to withstand. The sheer amount of brute force required for Olympic, Collegiate, and other top-level gymnasts to perform an exercise like the Vault is astounding. The Gymnast must generate enough force to spring into the air, ricochet off the vaulting table, perform a multitude of torque-laden twists and flips, then land feet-first in a graceful, 10-point landing. Just watching gymnastics can make you feel like you need a Chiropractor!

Planet Chiropractic Can Help You Recover from Gymnastics Injuries

Even an average practice session that a competitive gymnast endures daily would snap an average person’s ankles, knees, back, hips, and cause untold damage to their ligaments, muscles, and spinal column. A practicing gymnast not only performs Vault-type demanding tasks every day, but they may also practice and perform events like Floor Routines, the Balance Beam, the Uneven Bars, the Parallel Bars, the Horizontal Bar, the Still Rings, and the Pommel Horse for several hours every day. Gymnasts must also perform a whole host of other training exercises that help them prepare for the physical and mental demands of competitive gymnastics. It’s no surprise that gymnastic athletes often endure a myriad of gymnastics injuries. If you or your loved one has suffered a gymnastics injury, chronic pain, or other dysfunction due to gymnastics activities, help is only a phone call away. Call Planet Chiropractic today!
