Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Chiropractic care and sports training go hand in hand. Many professional athletes have publicly shared that chiropractic adjustments are crucial before and after their athletic feats. NFL champion Emmit Smith likened a single football game to being in more than 30 car accidents. With this kind of impact on the body, athletes need the best healthcare possible. Smith and many other athletes, from golfers to track and field stars, partially attribute their success and career longevity to chiropractic care.

Injury Prevention

What happens when you add impact to spinal misalignment? Injury. Chiropractic doctors assess athletes’ bodies, identifying problems with joints, muscles and movement patterns. Between spinal adjustments and exercises to strengthen weak areas, chiropractors help athletes prevent many injuries.

Enhanced Performance

Many athletes claim that, not only does chiropractic care decrease injuries, but it even enhances their game. Chiropractic treatment improves flexibility and range of motion, which are important for peak performance in many sports. Heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield claims that visiting a chiropractor three times a week improves his performance in the ring, and that most boxers regularly visit chiropractors. Golfers also feel the difference in their swing.

Healing Injuries

Athletes frequently consult chiropractors about their injuries. Sports trainers in particular tend to send their athletes to chiropractors for low-back pain and musculoskeletal problems. Proper chiropractic care can decrease an injury’s severity and reduce pain. The athlete may recover faster than she or he would without chiropractic treatments, allowing a quicker return to the game.

Amateur Athletes

You don’t have to be a professional athlete to warrant chiropractic care for your sports injuries. Millions of people run marathons, race bikes or participate in golf and tennis tournaments without ever going pro. Over the course of their athletic lives, most will have at least a few strained muscles, jarred spines, torn ligaments and other painful consequences. If your injuries are lessening your joy in your sport and interfering with your training or goals, call our clinic so we can help get you back on the court, green or field.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "When I first came into Healthcare Complete, my neck and back were messed up from an auto accident. Since my treatment started I have the full rotation of my neck again. I was waking up daily with tension headaches that I could do nothing about. The headaches are almost completely gone! I am excited to see how I will feel when my treatment is complete!"
    Auto Accident-Headaches and Neck Pain-Bobby
  • "When I came into Dr. Casey's office I limped in on a cane. I could hardly walk. Within 2-3 treatments the cane (and the pain!) was gone. My condition will require lifelong treatment, but I am confident in Dr. Casey's care. I have tried other chiropractors but I will only go to Dr. Casey and his team. THEY ROCK!!"
