Sydney Sports Chiropractor: An Advanced Service Combining Chiropractic, Exercise Physiology & Strength & Conditioning
What is a Sports Chiropractor?
A Sports Chiropractor aims to enhance performance, and prevent and manage injury, not just for an experienced and professional athlete, but also for the weekend warrior or amateur athlete. Sports chiropractic plays a major role in three important areas of prime concern to all athletes: maximise musculoskeletal performance, prevention of injury, and management of injury.
At Sydney Sports Chiropractor we have further education in Exercise Physiology and Strength and Conditioning and are better trained in the area of biomechanical function of the neuromusculoskeletal system. A thorough assessment allows the identification of specific biomechanics of a sport or athletic movement; this allows the precise knowledge of key joints under load, specific muscles under tension and areas of weakness or imbalance.
With an understanding of poor neuromuscular control, poor stability, poor conditioning, poor fitness or poor posture, a Sports Chiropractor will then target treatment of joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments often in sport specific postures. This allows the joints and soft tissues to be under load and to move through specific ranges of motion under gravity.
For a more thorough approach to your sports injury and for expert advice on rehabilitation and sports performance book your appointment with a practitioner at Sydney Sports Chiropractor.
