What is a Sport Chiropractor?
Chiropractic is used by top professional players in sports as diverse as golf, tennis and football. Competitors from ESPN’s X Games, volleyball, surfing, rowing, running, cycling, sailing, weightlifting, handball and more are Chiropractic care enthusiasts.
In addition to serving athletes at the World Games 2009 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, for the first time in Olympic history, Chiropractic care was fully integrated in caring for athletes at the 2010 Winter Olympics games in Vancouver.
Why is chiropractic so popular among athletes? Two reasons:
- Chiropractic can help improve and enhance athletic performance.
- Chiropractic can help keep athletes on the field and may prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones
You don’t have to be an Olympiad, a professional athlete or a “serious” athlete to benefit from Chiropractic care. Australians suffer from thousands of sports-related injuries each year and everyone with such an injury should be seen by a trained health practitioner, such as a Chiropractor. Even kinder, gentler sports can also create damage from repetitive overuse / micro-trauma, rather than one instance of major trauma. For example, over-gripping tennis racquets and golf clubs, incorrect walking or running patterns, and repetitive jumping sports such as volleyball.
