Relief From Sports Injury
I'm an athlete. Do many athletes use chiropractic care?
Yes. Many amateur and professional athletes use chiropractic treatment as part of their overall health care, fitness and maintenance program. Chiropractic is often used to improve muscle and joint conditions, which have a direct effect on athletic performance.
Biomechanical function and enhanced conditioning are achieved, which is important to the athlete who is subjected to continuous repetitive movement. Chiropractic care also helps athletes fine tune their muscles and joints for maximum performance and may reduce long-term wear and tear. Treatment can also be used to prevent and sometimes shorten the healing time of injuries.
Athletes are an example of those who often select chiropractic treatment to improve their performance as opposed to a patient who seeks care to manage pain. The treatments may be similar, but the treatment plan will be developed with respect to the goals and conditions of each patient. When dealing with professional and elite athletes, Chiropractors are often working alongside other health professionals including MDs, massage therapists, physiotherapists and chiropodists.
