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.
