Whether your practicing MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) for the conditioning or you’re practicing MMA competitively, it’s important to take care of your body along your path to learning the various disciplines of MMA, which usually entails Muay Thai, wrestling, grappling, and Jiu-Jitsu among other disciplines.
Chiropractic treatments are a great way to give your body and your brain the boost it needs to endure the training and abuse on your body that comes along with practicing MMA.
Below are a few ways that chiropractic adjustments can benefit the martial artist.
Improved Range of Motion
By visiting the chiropractor, we’ll provide you with treatments that will improve your flexibility and range of motion. You’ll move around the mat/cage and you’ll be able to land strikes you used to not be able to.
You drill and drill and drill some more so the moves become second nature and your mind computes the move to your body instantly. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to improve reflexes, which will help you with reaction time, which will make your countermoves faster and more effective.
After a fight or a tough training session, chiropractic treatment will give you amazing recovery benefits, not to mention provide you with drug-free pain relief.
If you’re into MMA you should have a close relationship with your chiropractic care specialist. Contact O’Connor Family Wellness Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
