Sports Chiropractic

A sports chiropractor focuses on the diagnosis, conservative treatment and rehabilitation of the neuromuscular skeletal system of athletes. By addressing the neuromusculoskeletal system a sports chiropractor is not only able to provide injury management but facilitate injury prevention (otherwise known as prehab).

The Treatment

When the neuromusculoskeletal system is efficiently functioning then you are able to perform at your best not only on game day but at training too. A sports chiropractor utilises a multi-modal approach to boost your bodies productivity. Just some of the methods used to achieve this include the following treatments:

Treatment Approaches

  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation
  • Myofascial Release
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Active Release Technique
  • Dry needling
  • PNF stretching
  • Functional and biomechanical assessment
  • Exercise Prescription
  • Supportive and proprioceptive taping
