Chiropractic for Athletes & Injuries

Athletes can experience many different benefits from receiving chiropractic care. Athletic performance is affected by a combination of strength, flexibility, speed and coordination. Participating in sports is highly encouraged because of the many benefits. Not only is a person getting exercise when playing, but they are also developing fine motor skills, learning about teamwork and fair play and of course building friendships. However, their bodies are also taking impacts no matter what sport they are playing.

Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments.  For high-impact athletes, it increases performance and flexibility and lowers the risk for injury; for low-impact athletes (golfers, tennis players, and bowlers), routine adjustments can help relieve the strain that is being placed on the body.  Chiropractic care offers a natural way to treat and prevent many different ailments that often plague athletes.





Not only can adjustments help when treating injuries from high and low impact sports, but regular treatment offers other benefits as well. Athletes getting routine chiropractic adjustments may notice:


  • Fewer headaches

  • Reduced shoulder pain

  • Improved athletic performance

  • Better ankle function

  • Improved range of motion

  • Improved endurance

  • Better flexibility

  • Increased blood flow

  • Fewer injuries


Because spinal adjustments by Dr. Chelsey can reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, the healing time from regular activity can be shortened, improving performance.
