What is a Sports Chiropractor? | Dynamic Wellness

Navigation:

For athletes, a sports injury can lead to lots of time spent off the court and out of the game. The most severe cases can even end careers. Even non-athletes who live active lifestyles can understand how debilitating a sports injury can be.

But nowadays, there are multiple solutions to this problem. There are methods that either treat the problem entirely, or even just reduce the person’s downtime. This means that the injury is cured, the athlete can resume training, and they can go back to reaching for their goals.

In the case of chiropractic sports medicine, the athlete isn’t just treated, but their performance is also improved significantly. And this is done through spinal manipulations.

Chiropractic sports medicine, also known as sports chiropractic, is relatively new compared to other treatment methods readily available in the market. Even in the field of chiropractic healing in particular, this is still a new expertise.

As you may already know, chiropractic care is slowly becoming more mainstream, as more practitioners are beginning to specialize in it, and more celebrities are endorsing its benefits.

What is a Sports Chiropractor?

If you’ve ever had a sprain, a strain, a tennis elbow, or an ankle injury during training, you’ll know how important sports chiropractors can be. They specialize in the care of musculoskeletal injuries, just like other chiropractors, but they also seek to improve athlete’s performance.

A sports chiropractor will help you avoid and prevent further damage, as well as future injuries. This branch of chiropractic care makes an excellent resource for athletes of all types.

If you need advice on performance issues or you need help with a sports injury, this type of chiropractor is the one you should seek out. They can help keep your body in peak physical condition, so you are always ahead of your game.

Sports chiropractors can quickly diagnose most types of sports related injuries. This makes them more efficient when it comes to administering the right kind of treatment through spinal adjustments. They have sound knowledge on preventative measures to make sure you spend more of your time out in the field, instead of having to stay in bed all day.

A sports chiropractor will help significantly reduce your downtime, so that you can get back in the game as quickly and as safely as possible.

It was in 1980 that the United States Olympic medical team added their first chiropractor. Since then, spinal manipulation has become something of a staple for many Olympic teams. Well-known athletes such as Michael Phelps, Ronda Rousey, and Tom Brady have attributed some of their success to the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Even if they don’t have any sports injuries to treat, they still go through the adjustments just to feel better. When everything is aligned and balanced within your system, you are bound to do great in any sport you play in.

Chiropractic care has been around for thousands of years, and now it is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Don’t hesitate to visit a local chiropractor today to see how they can help you achieve your peak physical capabilities.

    I've seen many chiropractors over the years for various things, but I've never felt like I've had the level of care provided here. My husband and I initially found Dr. Larry when we were looking for someone certified in ART, but now he's our family chiropractor. Thank you for such great care and service!
