Why Sports Chiropractic is the right treatment for YOU!
When talking with people about what I do, I often hear some of these comments about chiropractors:
1. I would see a chiropractor but I’m scared of having my bones cracked
2. I saw a chiropractor and they cracked my neck and it scared me!
When most people see the word Chiropractor, they think the traditional back and neck “cracking”. We call this chiropractic manipulation or “the adjustment”. Traditional chiropractic was solely directed to the spine, as the spine bones (vertebrae) surround and protect the spinal cord and impact the function of the nervous system. This is a vital component to treatment, and chiropractors have extensive experience in this. The purpose of chiropractic manipulation is to improve motion in joints, decrease pain, and improve the function of the nervous system.
What a lot of people don’t know, is that Chiropractors often have additional training in other services to help patients with their aches and injuries, not just the chiropractic manipulation. It is important to find a chiropractor that you are comfortable with and can perform a variety of services to best suit your health needs.
I am a Chiropractor with a Sports Medicine background and have additional training in:
- Muscle and ligament injuries
- Extremity conditions (ie: elbow tendinitis, rotator cuff strain, meniscal tear, ankle sprain, etc.)
- Sport-specific injury care and management
- Performance care
- Active rehabilitation strategies
As you can see, this dynamic skill-set combined with extensive experience expands beyond the spine! Whether you are dealing with a new problem, something more chronic, or are looking for general relief, book a FREE consult with me to discuss if a Sports Chiropractic Doctor is right for you!
