Chiropractic Care & Athletes


Having an active lifestyle is important for overall health. However, activity comes with its own wear and tear on the body. Aches, pains, misalignments, and injuries can result from physical activity. Sports, working out, and being active can all turn into issues that you want to stay on top of so you can stay at peak performance.

It’s really quite simple. Chiropractic care – through the use of safe and natural spinal adjustive techniques, physiotherapy applications, soft tissue mobilization, stretching and exercise programs, diet and nutritional counseling, and extensive biomechanical training – focuses on all causes which have lead to the symptoms of pain and tissue injury and do not focus on solely eliminating pain.

Successful treatments must focus not only on pain relief, but must address the underlying causes such as muscular imbalances, biomechanical deficiencies, improper sporting techniques, and improper conditioning, to name a few.

Athletes that want a competitive edge and be at the top of their game are seeing our Chiropractic team, and you should too.

Overland Park Chiropractic Sports Care

Chiropractic care has received much attention in regards to its successful management of sporting injuries. Since the majority of sports injuries are soft tissue in nature and because many of injuries arise from improper body biomechanics and improper sporting techniques, chiropractic doctors have become the doctors of choice – from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete.

Benefits of Sports Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is all about non-invasive relief. It provides relief in different injury spots all over the body without requiring any sort of instrument into the body. The biggest perk for the athlete is that it is a pain relief solution that keeps them away from surgeries that would require them to stay off the field or court for a longer amount of time. Treatment methods such as Chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, acupuncture and other techniques can provide relief to athletes suffering from a sports related injury. 

How Chiropractors Treat Athletes

When you are young you usually don’t think as much about taking care of your body. That is a tomorrow problem. But it is crucial that athletes care after their physical well-being even at a young age. Athletes should not just focus on health, preparation and recovery in season, but year round.

A chiropractor can make an entire health/nutritional plan for an athlete which includes proper diet and nutrition, sleep guidelines, and proper training strategies that should be utilized as a life-long habit. Making sure the spine and other extremities are aligned through chiropractic adjustments, body mechanic evaluation, and other chiropractic techniques can assist with muscular patterns and development that are essential in a developing youth athlete.

By keeping the athlete’s body in its healthiest form, where the athlete can train the most effectively and efficiently while minimizing the roadblocks that come with injury.
