Chiropractic is not only beneficial to the experienced and professional athlete, but is beneficial to the amateur and weekend athlete as well. The practitioner’s role is to enhance performance, and prevent and manage injury. The treatment of professional athletes has helped the chiropractor to apply his knowledge of biomechanical injuries and their treatment.


Chiropractors have been able to help in precompetition preparation, competition endurance, and all aspects of injury prevention and treatment.


Chiropractic is becoming more a treatment of choice by professional and amateur athletes. This has been evident in the treatment of collegiate, Olympic, and professional athletes. Chiropractic care is not only limited to the more advanced athlete, but young athletes are able to benefit from chiropractic treatment as well. This is especially true in the areas of critical, acute, and emergency care.
