This form of chiropractic offers irreplaceable benefits to many patients. Unfortunately, for those who participate in sports or regular physical activities, this is not enough. For those who require more specific and involved treatment, sports chiropractors are available.

Sports chiropractic is a subspecialty of chiropractic. Their focus is not just on pain reduction and basic function, but in improving the performance, recovery, and rehabilitation of common disorders that plaque athletes of all ages and levels of competition. In addition to a comprehensive knowledge of chiropractic, a sports chiropractor must be knowledgeable and properly trained in exercise theory, sports-related injury, and emergency care. A sports chiropractor is recognized by being certified as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician ( C.C.S.P) by the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians.

Typical treatment by a sports chiropractor may involve a multifaceted approach involving several types of therapies including Graston, FAKTR, and Active release therapy, myofascial release, athletic taping, corrective exercise, and stretching along with adjustments. Depending upon the condition a sports chiropractic appointment may take between 20-60 minutes versus a 5-minute adjustment from traditional chiropractic treatment.
