It has long been recognized that chiropractic care is an effective therapy for back pain. The gentle manipulation of your spine that can relieve the pressures of age or injury. It worked for people from every walk of life. But could it help athletes?It can and it does. The practice of sports chiropractic has helped everyone from the weekend warrior to the Olympic champions. Even football teams have a sports chiropractor on call to help out.

What is a Sports Chiropractor?

Chiropractors who are licensed to practice Sports Chiropractic are most concerned with how to promote and restore the proper biomechanics to those who punish their bodies the most through sports. Sports Chiropractors go well beyond the call that normal chiropractors do.

Treatment from a Sports Chiropractor will always be holistic and non-evasive. They will never put you on traditional medication. They use a large selection of therapies and diagnostic tools to treat the whole body, including nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.

Sports Chiropractors have taken a lot of extra training that allows them to understand the biomechanics of every sport. Due to this training, they can also help diagnose whether an athlete is suffering from an injury related to their sport or a different malady.

If an athlete’s injuries require surgery, the Sports Chiropractor can assist with evaluating the pre-operative condition of the patient. Once that patient is in recovery mode, they can help them get moving again through exercise, weight lifting, stretches, etc.

These duties may sound like those of a standard physical therapist; however, a Sports Chiropractor’s training is much different. While they are trained in the manipulation techniques as regular chiropractors, they are also trained to coach the patient make important lifestyle changes.
