Sports Chiropractic

Sports Chiropractic

A sports Chiropractor has now become one of the latest ‘must haves’ for sports teams. Almost all Golfers, American football teams, F1 teams, Aussie rules teams, Cycling teams, Rugby teams, Football teams and Olympic teams travel with a chiropractor to make sure their body is ready to compete and to decrease their chance of injury.

Chiropractors are unique in that they can form a working diagnosis and treatment plan through a thorough orthopaedic and neurological assesment as well as utilise their training in taking and reading x-rays. Chiropractors have a great track record for treating and restoring health and function faster than the normal recovery rate. This means an athlete can get back to competition within a shorter period of time, essential when in a fast paced tournament with little chance to recover between matches or breaks. The reason for this is that Chiropractors are the best at what they do, focusing on the spine as the key to moving correctly anywhere in the body. A Chiropractor can determine why an injury has occurred by looking at how the whole body is functioning, not just in one area. Therefore treating all areas associated to the injury including the root cause, thus decreasing or eliminating the chance of reoccurance.

Do all Chiropractors treat sports injuries?

Not all chiropractors are interested in treating sports injuries, therefore check to see if your chiropractor is registered with their national sports council, have completed a sports science degree or has one of the Sports Chiropractic qualifications. The letters of each qualification can be found following their name in their post nominals, these are all good indications of a good Sports Chiropractor.

The Chiropractors at the Longlevens Chiropractic and Sports Injury clinic have an extra sports specific qualification and are all members of the Royal College of Chiropractors Sports Faculty due to their love of sports and treating sports related injuries.
