Sports chiropractic for athletes

Sports chiropractic for athletes

Sports chiropractic for athletes. Whilst all of us could benefit from chiropractic treatment at some point, if not throughout our lives, athletes and those who play competitive sports will find a sports chiropractors’ advice and care particularly beneficial. This is because athletes put far more strain on their bodies during competitions, practice, and games than the average active person and need to be sure everything is always working to its maximum potential. A clear positive correlation exists between regular chiropractic and sports performance increase. However, perhaps the most essential benefit of sports chiropractic treatment is preventative. Those in the competitive athletic world will, unfortunately, at some point suffer an unavoidable injury. When they do, these preventive and ongoing treatments help them to heal faster, prevent further injury, and get back to the competition as quickly as possible.

The difference between Sports Chiropractor and General Chiropractors

Whilst Sports Chiropractors could perform general chiropractic care, not every General Chiropractor can serve as Sports Chiropractors Not only does it require additional training, but far more knowledge is needed on soft tissue care. Depending on the injury, some of the same methods may be used in the treatment for athletes, such as chiropractic care for an average person. Yet, Sports Chiropractors will often use different tools a General Chiropractor will not possess.

What will happen during my appointment?

After taking your medical history and understanding your health concerns, your practitioner will perform functional, neurological, and orthopaedic assessments, as well as an examination of your muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. A digital posture analysis will be made, and muscle testing will be performed. With all this information, your practitioner will know what the problem is and if and how they can help with chiropractic for performance increase and injury rehabilitation.

After the assessment, if you do not benefit from treatment, the session will end and will be free of charge. If a treatment plan has been established, with your consent, a chiropractic adjustment will be provided where appropriate. This will often take the form of gentle, specific manipulation, which is generally painless. However, some short-term discomfort may be felt around the injured and treated area.

Treatment will usually be followed up by a rehabilitation plan to help strengthen the affected area, improve your flexibility, and prevent future problems.

The overall aim is to restore the normal function of the muscles and joints of your body, increasing your control, coordination, and strength.

After treatment, you may decide to return for regular check-ups to keep your performance at its best.
