Chiropractic offers a balanced approach to the treatment and the healing of sports injuries. By using the chiropractic adjustment to return spinal segments to their normal mobility and by using physical therapy to help the supportive tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments), chiropractic physicians help the injured areas return to normal function, with many finding their way back on the court in little to no time afterward.
Many professional athletes are utilizing chiropractic care more and more because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Articles continue to appear in major newspapers and magazines citing stars and athletes proclaiming the benefits that chiropractic care has meant for their careers. More and more professional and college teams are utilizing care for that same reason.
