Sports Chiropractic FAQ

The differences between a standard chiropractor and a sports chiropractor are significant. A standard chiropractor is a highly trained professional who typically deals with a variety of folks who are in pain and want relief. He will review a patient’s medical history, conduct an assessment, then locate and address the source of the discomfort. He may also provide education about the problem and create a treatment plan to optimize healing. Just as a good mechanic can troubleshoot an issue and help a car last longer, a good chiropractor can help his patients enjoy a more pain-free and healthy lifestyle.
One of the greatest benefits of routine chiropractic treatments for athletes is the improved range of motion. Athletes put so much pressure on their bodies when training and these physically intense activities can create problems with spinal alignment and movement.
Sports chiropractors treat high-level, elite athletes, but they can and also do treat everyday people and everyone in between too. No matter who what level your at, a sports chiropractor can take care of everything from rehabilitation of an injury to helping you achieve a PR. Many sports chiropractors treat common, overuse injuries. Runners who suffer with hip, knee or foot injuries or pain, overhead athletes like volleyball, baseball and tennis players who have shoulder or upper extremity injuries or pain and sports traumas, even concussions are managed by sports chiropractors. They can evaluate, diagnose and treat just about any sports related injury or performance issue. Sports chiropractors are trained to use multiple imaging modalities such as x-ray, CT, MRI and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to evaluate for injury and track the progress of rehabilitation.

A sports chiropractor will still do spinal manipulation, if needed. They will also evaluate and adjust joints that may demonstrate limited range of motion due to restriction. But that is just the beginning.

Here are just a few of the treatments that you may get from a sports chiropractor:
