Sports Chiropractic for Athletes At All Levels

sports injuryWhile Chiropractic care has become an integral part of the training regime for many professional sportspeople and athletes, it can be of huge benefit to amateur athletes and ‘weekend warriors’ too!

Chiropractic is not just for those sporting injuries that can arise from trauma or overuse. The focus of sports chiropractic care is to enable optimisation of athletic potential by ensuring that the skeletal and neuromuscular systems are working optimally and in balance. In addition, it provides conservative management of injuries and rehabilitation afterwards, to enable full and correct healing.

Worries about being ‘out of action’ due to injury, are common to athletes at all levels. When injury strikes, it is vital to get prompt and effective treatment to prevent permanent damage and the prospect of the injury recurring in the future. Chiropractic care is effective, for example, research has shown that it offers the most effective conservative treatment option for back pain in athletes.

How Can Chiropractic Help

Chiropractic care has become increasingly popular in sport. Chiropractors are now part of the support teams for professional footballers, cricketers, Olympic athletes and sportspeople at all levels who are striving for peak performance.

In order to achieve optimal performance levels, correct functioning of joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons is essential. Injuries or misalignments of spinal and peripheral joints can result in problems with reduced mobility, strength and endurance and a slowing of reflexes.

Joint mobilisation and adjustments, soft tissue and myofascial release work are just some of the key treatments that might be included in a program of Chiropractic care for sportspeople. In addition, exercise therapies may be advised either as part of rehabilitation after an injury or for building strength to prevent a future injury.

The holistic care provided by the team at Northern Beaches Chiropractic also includes dietary and nutritional advice. The key is to identify and treat the underlying cause of any injury or potential for injury – not just to treat the symptoms.
