Sports Chiropractic

What is Sports Chiropractic?

Sports chiropractic is a branch of chiropractic for those with an interest and expertise in treating athletes. Sports chiropractic is also known as chiropractic sports sciences/medicine. 

The focus of sports chiropractic is to provide care in the conservative management, rehabilitation and performance optimisation of the neuromusculoskeletal system for athletes. Sports chiropractors are also strongly driven to participate in a multi-disciplinary sports injury care environment to help provide the best care for each athlete.

Sports chiropractic achieves this focus through the application of a multi-modal management approach that include one or more of the following: manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, physiological therapeutics (e.g. ultrasound, electrotherapy), rehabilitation and other movement/corrective exercise strategies, nutritional advice, strapping and bracing and other related approaches. These approaches are applied to injury management in the form of acute, subacute and chronic injury as well as in the prevention of injury and the optimisation of athletic performance through the pursuit of the highest efficiency in neuromusculoskeletal functioning.
