Have you ever wondered what makes Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Kaka and Michael Jordon the elite athletes they are? As well as being extremely talented individuals these group of athletes are all under chiropractic care on a regular basis!!
Consequently these stars of sport are rarely ever injured and maintain heavy schedules performing at the top level.
Ever since chiropractic began sports players from all abilities have used chiropractic to help with injuries and to aid recovery.
Many sports stars from around the world of sport are now taking advantage of the benefits of chiropractic care to allow them to play at their best and for more years.
The majority of sporting injuries seen are in joints as well as the back and neck.
These injuries are traditionally treated with non mechanical treatments such as massage, modalities as well as many other soft tissue techniques, however often structural and mechanical work also needs done when at the core of the problem there is mechanical dysfunction and misalignment.
Chiropractic treatment addresses all components of an injury allowing for a fast and long term recovery through manipulation, adjusting, rehabilitation exercise and proprioceptive work.
For example many lower extremity injuries such as knee pain can arise from misaligned pelvic joints. A misaligned pelvis changes the biomechanical movement of the pelvic joints, hips, knees and ankles. This causes pain and malfunction and repetitive injury.
We not only recognise the importance of addressing the biomechanics of the spine and pelvis, but also make sure that the joints in the rest of the body are correctly aligned.
