Sports chiropractic care deals with the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of athletic injuries to joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Our sports chiropractors have extensive training and knowledge of anatomy, conditioning techniques, core strengthening exercises, and deep tissue massage. Our chiropractors have advanced training in evaluating and treating musculoskeletal problems that relate to overuse injuries or sports participation.
Treatment can include:
Rehabilitative exercises combined with spinal adjustments and soft tissue techniques are a natural and safe way to manage pain. The current techniques associated with chiropractic care, such as the Graston technique, allow injured tissues and muscles to relax, relieving tension that’s caused by built-up injuries resulting in symptoms such as muscle spasms and headaches. Treatment can promote a faster recovery and can prevent future injury in athletes.
Sports chiropractors will evaluate a patient from all levels of fitness and sports including recreational and professional athletes. The goal of this medical care is to identify musculoskeletal issues that relate to overuse injuries and sports activities as well as provide treatment for the prevention of injury in the future.
Common Sports Injuries
Our advanced knowledge of sports injuries allows us to help an athlete using a natural approach to pain management. We don’t prescribe surgery or drugs to heal an injury. Drug-free pain relief means no fear of becoming addicted to pain medication and no harmful side effects.
Our chiropractors have expert-level knowledge of effective treatments that can provide immediate relief from pain, muscle tightness, damaged soft tissue, and other injuries. We know how important it is to communicate with other health care providers and can also work with a patient’s massage therapist, physical therapist, primary care physician, and other members of a patient’s care team to create a rehabilitative care program that can help manage a patient’s pain and speed up their recovery time. An individualized medical care plan is created to meet the specific needs of every patient so they can get back to enjoying their everyday life as soon as possible.

Endurance, strength, and flexibility are just some of the benefits that an athlete can achieve with chiropractic treatment. Gentle joint manipulation and the active release technique can provide pain relief, reduce aches and pains, and can improve mobility. It can also help an athlete to avoid a long period away from their sport while minimizing the risk of future injuries through improved muscle balance and posture.
Our rehabilitative care, soft tissue techniques, and spinal manipulation techniques have been shown to speed up the healing process, which means the athlete will need less time off their sport and will suffer fewer complications.
Fatigue is a common symptom that a body is functioning poorly. Spinal manipulation and soft tissue techniques can help eliminate this issue by reducing nerve interference and improving posture through spinal manipulation. This also means a reduction in back pain, which can also disrupt sleep.
Chiropractic primary care is a form of medicine that can correct the weak links in an athlete’s body to strengthen their muscles, which can make it more difficult for injuries to occur in the future. Our chiropractors can detect if an athlete is developing a muscle imbalance before the imbalance becomes a serious problem or causes damage to another part of their body. They are also trained to create an athletic training program that can prevent potential problems before athletes get injured.
This comprehensive care is used to reduce pain from neurological and musculoskeletal injuries. When the vertebrae compress spinal nerves it can cause severe pain. Readjusting the vertebrae with spinal manipulation can take pressure off the nerve endings, instantly relieving pain and discomfort. Our sports chiropractors will also use additional therapies and techniques for pain relief and improved mobility, such as hot and cold treatments, soft tissue manipulation techniques, conditioning techniques, and other methods to help a patient reach their health goals. They may also recommend physical therapy when needed.
A spinal adjustment will not only correct a misalignment in the spine, but it can also decrease pain and promotes better blood flow. Spinal adjustments will improve flexibility by loosening tight and tense muscles, improving range of motion.
A chiropractic adjustment can help strengthen the spine, making it easier to do all types of tasks without injury or pain. A chiropractor can strengthen the athlete’s core and other parts of the body, such as the hips, neck, and back, helping them to perform better and achieve their athletic goals.
Our sports chiropractors provide excellent care that can improve an athlete’s general health and speed up their recovery time. Athletes can find relief from aches and pains including back pain, neck pain, headaches, or migraines.
