FIND OUT MORE ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC AND SPORTS INJURY
Chiropractic may help in many cases of sporting injury. Sports chiropractic focuses on the management, rehabilitation and optimal performance of the neuromusculoskeletal system. By removing interference to the nervous system, relaxing muscles and assisting in maintaining a neutral spinal alignment, your body can perform better at your favourite sport.
We help athletes recover from sports injuries by addressing musculoskeletal imbalances and restoring proper alignment to the body. We use a combination of manual therapies, exercises, and other techniques to help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
During your chiropractic visit, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the extent of the injury and any underlying issues that may be contributing to the problem. We may then use a variety of techniques, such as spinal adjustments, massage, and stretches, to improve joint mobility and reduce muscle tension.
By restoring proper alignment to your body, chiropractic care can help athletes recover from injuries more quickly and prevent future injuries from occurring. Chiropractors may also provide advice on injury prevention strategies, such as proper stretching and warm-up techniques, to help you stay healthy and perform at your best.

SPORTS CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
There are many different ways a sports chiropractor helps to address injury. Treatment is usually multi-modal and includes one or more of the following:

BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC FOR SPORTS INJURY
- Prevents injury in the first place
- Improves biomechanics and performance
- Helps you to recovery faster from injury, meaning you’ll be back to your favourite sport in less time
- Improves your overall posture, which in turns allows your body to function more optimally and with less ‘friction’.
Injuries of all kinds including acute and chronic injury often benefit from an integrated approach to care. All of the above treatment options help to increase efficiency in neuromusculoskeletal functioning. This in turn boosts athletic performance.
Chiropractic works to improve overall performance and function of your body, thereby allowing you to enjoy your favourite sporting activity. Our team have specific training in treating and working with a range of sports injury.
A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH
Athletes and competitive sporting clubs simply can’t afford to put up with injury. An injury at a crucial time in the season may mean the difference between winning and losing a game, semi-final or worse still, the season!
Some persistent sports injuries need that extra bit of love and attention. Even with great chiropractic adjusting and assessment, many of our athletes require further care. That’s why we utilise a functional approach: active care combined with adjusting and soft-tissue work.
We look at the interrelationship between system and structure. This includes soft tissues, joints and how the nervous system controls movement patterns. We take a whole of body approach, rather than just focusing on one area or a single pathology.

Headline: Masters 2019: Aussies Adam Scott and Jason Day in five-way tie for first place, Tiger Woods on the prowl
Jason Day relied on his chiropractor to help him manage an injury so that he could play the next day. Day came out firing with a five-under-par 67 which rocketed him to seven under.
“Jason Day said he had his chiropractor, Canadian Dr Stuart Love, worked tirelessly on his back on Thursday night and Friday morning to get Day ready to play through the injury. It worked wonders as he appeared to be in considerably less pain as he put together a round that was nearly flawless.
The 31-year-old birdied all four par 5s while picking up another two – at the par-4 fifth and par-3 16th.”
