Most athletes are generally concerned with what they can do to improve performance, avoid injuries and facilitate the healing process of previous injuries. A Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to evaluate and treat many injuries that can occur due to sports. An adjustment and soft tissue manipulation to areas of the spine, joints and tissue which have been overused, displaced or fail to function normally can help restore proper position and motion in addition to allowing for the body to heal properly.
Injuries such as sprains, strains, tendonitis, bursitis, joint pain of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot can be treated effectively with chiropractic care and Active Release Technique.
When your body is in better alignment and has a full range of motion, your nervous system is more finely tuned and the body is able to perform at it’s greatest level. Adjustments will help athletes sustain fewer injuries and also help for quicker recovery.
Chiropractors have also been attending doctors at the Olympic Games as well as for professional sports teams.
