About Sports Chiropractic

Sports Chiropractic is also known as Chiropractic Sports Sciences / Medicine. The focus of a Sports Chiropractor is to provide care in the conservative management, rehabilitation and performance optimization of neuromusculoskeletal system for athletes and to participate in a multi-disciplinary sports injury care environment.

Sports Chiropractic achieves this focus through the application of a multimodal treatment approach that include one or more of the following: manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, rehabilitation and other movement/exercise therapies, 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.

Sports Chiropractic is “multi-modal” in nature, incorporating components of passive and active care to address both the acute inflammatory/pain phase, and also the chronic rehabilitation/injury prevention phase.

As part of a Sports Medical Team, a Sports Chiropractor focuses on the preventative, maintenance forms of treatment as much as on the acute, immediate treatment needs of an athlete. A Sports Chiropractor gives consideration to the hard and soft connective tissues (muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia etc), in addition to exercise prescription.
