Sports chiropractors specialize in the care of musculoskeletal injuries, including prevention. This branch of chiropractic expertise is an excellent resource for athletes. Whether you need a little advice on performance issues or treatment for a sport-related injury, any type of athlete will find that a sports chiropractor is an important part of keeping their body in peak condition.
Chiropractic care has been around for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until 1980 that the first chiropractor was added to the United States Olympic medical team. Since then, spinal adjustments have become an important part of many sports medical teams. Athletes from every walk of life are starting to realize the long-term benefits of chiropractic care.
Sports chiropractors take a multidisciplinary approach to treat their patients. They also have an extensive knowledge of sports and sports-related injuries. This means that they’re uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat an athlete’s body without the use of drugs or invasive surgical procedures. Because chiropractic medicine is defined by its “hands on” approach to healing and the belief in caring for the entire body, it’s becoming an increasingly popular way to stay in the game without relying on drugs or surgeries.
Sports chiropractic is a highly specialized field that typically focuses on professional or aspiring athletes.
