Chiropractic Care for the Athlete

Athletes use chiropractors to stay well and perform better, not just for the occasional injury.

Athletes choose chiropractors because we are movement specialists. Top athletes such as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, Tom Brady, Evander Holyfield, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have all been proud patients of chiropractors. These days it’s far more common than not for major athletes and sports teams to keep chiropractors nearby to help prevent injuries, speed injury recovery, improve balance and coordination, and give them that competitive edge.

Why do Athletes see a Chiropractor ?

  • Prevent sport injuries
  • Enhance your performance
  • Pain/limited range of motion in shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Muscle or ligament sprain
  • Tendonitis/bursitis

The Role of your Chiropractor

Sports Chiropractic utilizes a multidisciplinary approach incorporating modalities such as chiropractic spinal manipulation, myofascial release, strenghtening and stretching exercises, physical rehabilitation, ergonomic assessment and nutritional modifications to fit your lifestyle needs and to optimize your athletic performance.

Special Chiropractic Techniques for the Athlete  

Graston® technique is a soft-tissue technique used for breaking down adhesions between muscle fibers, in order to promote faster, superior healing of the muscle and tendon fibers.

Kinesiotape® is an elastic tape which may be worn during sports activity in order to prevent injury, or to optimize muscle function. Kinesiotape® also promotes the healing of sports injuries by assisting in the resorption of inflammation and by stimulating the skin’s nerve fibers.
