Chiropractic is an integral part of the care that many professional and Olympic athletes receive, but just because you are not going to the Olympics doesn’t mean that you too can’t improve your health and performance with chiropractic care.
There are two basic types of sports injuries: The first is a result of trauma caused by a collision, slip, or a fall. The second is caused by the overuse of a muscle group or joint whereby the repetitive motion causes inflammation or injury.
It is important to take proper care for any injury to prevent the development of a chronic problem or permanent damage. Chiropractors are trained in treating sport’s related injuries and can advise you on the best way to heal an injury and how to prevent it from recurring.
In fact, research has suggested that Chiropractic is the most effective conservative treatment for athletes with back pain (Petering, MD & Webb, DO, 2011).
Chiropractic care for sports injuries can range from balance assessments, injury management, specific bracing, and return to activity protocols.
