Professional athletes are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Everyday athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes have, they experience
injuries. Who tends to these
Chiropractors are to athletes, just as Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. Chiropractors can treat an injured athlete more effectively than a medical doctor, who is not well versed in sports injuries. In addition to treating sports injuries, a chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention. Amateur and recreational athletes will also benefit from seeing a Certified Sports Chiropractor.

Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game with ice packs and taking pain medication. Medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treats each injury individually. Most sports injuries are predominantly felt in the extremities; such as, the leg, ankle, arm, shoulder, or wrist. Back and neck injuries are also common with sports injuries. This demonstrates that sports injuries do not only harm one section of the body, they impact the entire body.
It has been said that chiropractic care most closely relates to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state. Athletes see such a great value in chiropractic treatment that they regularly have chiropractic well visits to prevent more sports injuries. If you are an athlete or weekend warrior, chiropractic care will enable you to reach peak performance, without hurting yourself.
Non-athletes can also benefit from seeing a Certified Sports Chiropractor.
