A sports chiropractor is a highly trained and extremely knowledgeable provider of chiropractic medicine that has advanced expertise in both the prevention and rehabilitation of sports related injury, advanced training in the use of musculoskeletal imaging studies, in addition to expert level knowledge in sport-specific strength and conditioning techniques and optimal biomechanics.
Chiropractic treatment incorporates a gentle, hands on approach to improving joint motion throughout your entire body. At Chiropractic Therapeutics, we believe that even your smallest joints play an integral role in your body’s overall movement. Having balanced joints prevents local inflammation, early degeneration and injury throughout the body. Chiropractic treatment also improves your physical performance by avoiding inefficient joint movements which often leads to dysfunctional muscle compensation patterns.
Prior to the chiropractic adjustment, joint movements throughout the entire body are evaluated to determine if any joint restrictions are present. Adjustments are administered to restricted joints through a variety of different techniques dependent upon the patient's preference and comfort levels. The common adjustment typically includes a very shallow thrust which may or may not result in an audible "pop" or cavitation. This sound is created by the movement of "gas" naturally located within our joint/synovial fluid.
Chiropractic adjustment benefits include:
- Restoration of restricted joint motion
- Improves nutrition to vertebral discs and joint cartilage
- Reduces pain
- Reduces muscle spasms and tightness
- Improves alignment of new scar tissues
- Stimulate nervous system for improved sympathetic/parasympathetic response
