Sports Chiropractic to Prevent Sports Injuries

Do you know what sports chiropractic is?

Healthcare professionals recommend exercise to optimize your health and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

However, practicing an inappropriate sport in poor physical condition could be harmful to your health and lead to common injury. Chiropractic treatments are the methods of choice to treat your sports injuries and allow you to return to training quickly.

Skilled in manipulations as well as spinal and peripheral adjustments, chiropractors are able to guide and provide appropriate care to athletes of all levels.
Exercise is recommended by all healthcare professionals to restore and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, sports that are not adapted to our physical condition could provoke injuries.

Thanks to their studies and expertise in sports fields and injures, chiropractors are able to guide their patients in their sport practice and to provide appropriate care to athletes of all levels.

With their extensive knowledge of the neuro-musculoskeletal system, chiropractors are able to assess, diagnose and treat most problems related to physical activity. They are the health professionals of choice for the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. With the help of specific exercises, chiropractic care helps restore mechanical function, promote neuromuscular control and facilitate proprioceptive functions.

At Kiroclinique, our chiropractors are trained to heal your sports injuries and help your performance.

Regarding professional athletes, a chiropractic follow-up is imperative to avoid over-training injuries or articular degeneration. Furthermore, they may improve their performance with chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation exercises and professional advice.

If you or your child do sports, amateur or professional, it is recommended to receive a complete neuromusculoskeletal evaluation with your chiropractor. He will then be able to propose a custom treatment plan adapted to your needs.

How does sports chiropractic work?

Chiropractors are able to diagnose and treat sports injuries. The primary goal of this is to reduce pain and restore the functions of the nervous system thanks to manual chiropractic therapy or by adjusting the spine.

Although chiropractic treatment is useful for everyone, it is important to mention during your first visit that your injury is sports-related or that you are someone who practices intense physical activities. Your sports chiropractor needs this information to perform a quality physical examination and provide appropriate care. The treatments will generally aim to reduce inflammation and limitations in the affected muscles and joints.

In addition to treating athletic injuries, a sports chiropractor can also help you improve your athletic performance and reduce your risks of injuries. This type of sports medicine is therefore more suitable for athletes than traditional chiropractic care.

What is the role of chiropractic treatment for pro or amateur athletes?

The services of sports chiropractors are ideal for athletes suffering from sports injuries who want to reduce the risk of injuries or improve their athletic prowess. These chiropractic professionals focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sports-related injuries.

If you have a sports injury that is negatively affecting your quality of life, sports chiropractic is an excellent solution. These treatments are useful for:

  • Joint injuries (knee, shoulder, or elbow injuries such as tennis elbow and epicondylitis)
  • Injuries associated with the muscles and soft tissues (minor injuries, movement injuries, muscle tension, tendinitis, and bursitis)
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches

To receive optimal care that will quickly improve your joint, muscular, and skeletal function, trust our sports chiropractic doctors.

What are the benefits of sports chiropractic care?

Athletic treatments are just as useful for healing as they are for preventing musculoskeletal injuries. There is no need to wait for pain to appear to benefit from chiropractic treatment.

You can therefore take advantage of the expertise of our experienced chiropractors to:

  • Receive sports-related care that reduces the risk of triggering injury mechanisms in the human body
  • Improve your range of motion
  • Improve your posture
  • Optimize your performance

Whatever your chiropractic needs, our team trained in sports care is at your disposal. Don’t hesitate to discuss your rehabilitation expectations or performance objectives with us. We will be pleased to build a personalized chiropractic treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
