At Optimal Health & Wellness Center we treat many athletes who are looking to boost their recovery process because it ends up helping them train smarter and harder, which gets them better results on the court or on the field of play.
Read on for a few tips that will help you boost your recovery, whether you’re playing hoops as a part of March Madness or participate in any other sport that puts your body through wear and tear.
Stretch After Games
Incorporating a rigorous stretching routine after your games — and every night for that matter — will help increase your flexibility and your range of motion. Utilize some yoga moves to help your back, your legs, your neck, and every other part of your body. Many times athletes shortchange their stretching routine, and it always ends up coming back to hurt them. Literally.
Eating clean, whole foods will help energize you and make sure that your body and brain are firing on all cylinders. Incorporating collagen protein (which can be found in powders as well as bone broth in significant amounts) into your diet after your games and workouts will help your muscles and joints recover from any abuse you put them through.
Get Familiar with Your Local Chiropractor
Combining a chiropractic care plan with your training program will help you treat any injuries you sustain while also helping you avoid injuries down the road that can certainly take you out of the game. Chiropractic adjustments ensure your body and your mind are functioning at optimum capacity — the drug-free way!
