Chiropractic and Sports Injuries

One of the many passions for the doctors at Christopher Chiropractic is sports! Now don't ask them which team they cheer for, because even though they are happily married, their house tends to be divided between the Gamecocks of South Carolina and the Wildcats of Kentucky. Both, however, love to cheer on the local teams and most of the time you will see them at your local high school or college games.

At Christopher Chiropractic, we also love to provide care for athletes because we know that it can have a great impact on the performance and prevention of injuries for the athletes. A study published by BioMed Central (Hoskins W, Pollard H, BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders 2010, 11:64) found that Australian Football players (aka soccer players) who received chiropractic care:
  • suffered less from lower limb muscle strain injuries, 
  • had fewer weeks missed due to non-contact knee injuries,
  • had a reduction of low back pain 
  • showed improvement in physical components of health status as compared to those who did not receive care.
Chiropractic care for athletes is catching on at the professional level. All but one of the thirty-two teams in the NFL use the services of chiropractors, and those chiropractors give 16,000 to 27,000 adjustments each season to some of the worlds most elite athletes. 
The American Chiropractic Association recently published an article stating that, Tour de France Cyclist Christian Vande Velde visited his chiropractor each night during the race to help his body recover from the strenuous activities of the day. 
If you are an athlete and have questions about chiropractic or want to schedule an appointment call Christopher Chiropractic today at (606) 549-4811
