What is Sports Chiropractic?
Sports Chiropractic is an important part of integrative sports medicine keeping Australians active through their participation in sport and exercise. Sports Chiropractors provide diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies to assist active individuals with their pain and function.
Injury creates compensation by tightening muscles and altering movement patterns to help manage and unload damaged or painful tissues. Therefore an effective treatment starts with a comprehensive examination. We take a whole-body approach to your injury with a focus on movement quality and identifying areas of dysfunction by assessing the joints, muscles and the nervous system to find the underlying cause of your injury.
