Sports Injury

Rehab goals include general strengthening as well as enhancing sport specific strength and stability. Most programs involve proprioceptive strength training, which means training in an unbalanced environment (using exercise balls, wobble discs, balance boards, etc.) to become more stable when on flat ground.

Along with treating existing injuries, athletes find that being checked for problems and weaknesses on a regular basis and correcting them while they are still minor helps prevent major injuries. We like to call this "Pre-hab", as strong, balanced and properly aligned joints are much less prone to injury.

Interesting fact: the average athlete will experience a 17% increase in peak performance by being under chiropractic care.

Some common issues that typically respond well to sports chiropractic care:

Neck and back pain/dysfunction
Golfer's and tennis elbow
TMJ dysfunction
Knee pain
Rotator cuff injuries
Chronically sprained ankles
Carpal tunnel
Plantar fasciitis

Professional athletes are constantly reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Competitors train rigorously and take their diets to a new level every day. Yet despite the conscientious care and precautions that athletes follow, most experience musculoskeletal injuries at one time or another.

Chiropractors are to athletes as cardiologists are to those who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game icing their injuries and taking pain medication. This is because medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treat each injury individually. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment offers a balanced, holistic approach, by using spinal adjustments and physical therapy techniques to help the patient’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their normal function.

Chiropractic care meticulously tends to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Additionally, chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously in their healthiest, most natural state.

Professional athletes recognize tremendous value in chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Whether you’re an athlete or weekend warrior, receiving chiropractic care will enable you to reach an optimum level of achievement without breaking yourself.
