Sports Chiropractic Care
Athletes Choose Chiropractic Care
Athletes put a lot of demands on their bodies, particularly the joints. Posture issues, muscle imbalances, skeletal misalignments and existing pain from sleep positions or sitting at a desk for long periods can affect the form we take when running, lifting weights or swinging a golf club, and that can lead to injuries in the neck, back, elbows, hips, and knees — really anywhere with a joint!
Chiropractic care is one of many forms of natural health care, specifically a non-invasive, drug-free alternative that can help patients find relief from a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Athletes in particular, can greatly benefit from chiropractic treatments both before and after they practice and perform.
Professional sports leagues, including Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Football League (NFL), have recognized these benefits for years. In fact, most professional teams employ their own official sports chiropractor.
Whether they play in a neighborhood sports league or are elite competitors, an increasing number of athletes rely on chiropractic doctors who specialize in sports injury treatment to get them back in the game.
Sports chiropractors specialize in three additional areas from conventional chiropractors. While they can absolutely perform necessary chiropractic adjustments of the neck and back, they are additionally focused on:
preventing athletic injuries
diagnosing and treating existing sports-related pain and injuries, and
improving body function to maximize training and performance.
No matter what your age or experience level, a sports chiropractor can help keep you injury-free while improving overall athletic performance. If you already have an injury, we can get you back to your sport of choice safely, quickly and stronger than before.
