WHAT IS SPORTS CHIROPRACTIC?
Sports chiropractic is an area of chiropractic care that focuses on treating injuries sustained by sportsmen and women in pursuit of their athletic goals. Sports chiropractic is time-sensitive and has three main areas of focus.
- Conservative management works to control inflammation and reduce the pain caused by the injury through prompt treatment.
- Rehabilitation focuses on improving joint function and employing therapeutic exercises to improve mobility.
- Performance optimization is the use of chiropractic techniques to optimize the neuromusculoskeletal system. Strength and proprioceptive exercises are employed in this phase, including sports-specific movements.
Any sports-related injury will be thoroughly and rigorously assessed. If necessary, this may require the necessity of x-rays or other types of scans to provide a more comprehensive overview of your injury.
