Agility is the ability to accelerate, decelerate, stabilize, and quickly change directions with proper form and posture. Everyone, athletes and non-athletes, use agility every day. This can be maneuvering around objects during a jog, shifting movements or positions when walking through a crowd, reaching toward the highest shelf, or carrying things upstairs. These controlled reactions require a balance of coordination, speed, stamina, and strength. Injury Medical Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Clinic can provide agility enhancement through adjustments, massage, and decompression to relax the body, strengthen the muscles, and improve circulation and nerve function.

Agility Enhancement: EP's Chiropractic Functional TeamAgility Enhancement

Individuals need skill and control to react to a stimulus or movement. Agility requires muscular coordination, efficiency, and cohesiveness between the upper and lower body. Agility and reaction time are two components of neuromusculoskeletal health that work together. Agility enhancement can improve cognitive ability, power production, and physical performance. Agility enhancement improves overall physical skills, including:

  • Balance
  • Stability
  • Coordination
  • Body Control
  • Cognition
  • Recovery time

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic improves agility neurologically through improved circulation and energy flow in the nervous system.

Injury Treatment and Prevention

Agility enhancement can help with injury prevention, as agility training increases control, balance, and flexibility.ย It teaches the correct body placement while moving to protect the knees, shoulders, and lower back. It also helps to strengthen the muscles and improve the resiliency of the connective tissue allowing them to shorten and lengthen rapidly. This helps prevent injuries and relieves pain and stiffness associated with muscle overuse.

  • Stiffness often occurs from the overuse of muscles.
  • Stiffness reduces flexibility, increasing the risk of injury and affecting movement and physical capabilities.
  • Stiffness can even occur from changes in everyday routines.
  • Chiropractic prevents the muscles from tensing up, reducing stiffness and increasing your range of motion.
  • Chiropractic helps strengthen the musculoskeletal system, which makes it easier to maintain normal balance.
  • Chiropractic can strengthen the muscles by making the muscle fibers more excitable, contributing to quicker reaction time.

We create rehabilitation and strength and conditioning treatment plans that are individualized for each individual. This program entails the following:

  • Chiropractic assessment.
  • Therapeutic massage.
  • Rehabilitation exercises.
  • Strengthening of the whole body.
  • Posture, mobility, and performance education for improved movement.
  • Health and nutritional recommendations.

Our treatment programs are designed to improve each individual’s whole body health and decrease the risk of injury.
