Chiropractic treatments for sports injuries are tailored to the specific needs of the sportsperson. Other medical professions specialize in the management of fractures, torn flesh, ripped tendons, dislocations, blood and fluid loss and other damage that needs immediate attention. Chiropractors assess and correct spinal misalignment and abnormal spinal bio-mechanics that can occur as a consequence of their injuries.

Chiropractic Treatment Method for Sports Injuries
Your chiropractor will balance your spinal column and relieve stress on your muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves.
First, the chiropractor will examine your entire spine for spinal misalignment (and abnormal spinal bio-mechanics). The more misalignment that you have the more stress on your discs, joints, ligaments and muscles. Chiropractors correct misalignment (and abnormal spinal bio-mechanics) with what we call an adjustment.
With regard to sports injuries postural and bio-mechanical assessment is especially important. Chiropractors examine you from the feet up: so flat feet, a short leg and muscle imbalances are looked for. Postural correction exercise, stretches and muscle release exercises are usually given.
Treatment Outcomes – What To Expect
Most major sporting clubs have a chiropractor working in conjunction with a physiotherapist. Unfortunately many people have imbalances in their spine and don’t realize it and it is often only when they experience pain that they do something about it. Success is dependent on many factors. How long the problem has been there, the amount of wear and tear present on x-ray, whether there is referred pain, job posture, and stress/social factors all have an impact on success.
Expect professional, up-to-date dedicated care with plenty of education and helpful advice.
