Traditional chiropractic care focuses on correcting misalignments in the spine through manipulations of the vertebral joints.
In recent times there has been a shift in the focus of Chiropractors to not only address problems of the spine, but also address other joints of the body (i.e. hips, knees, feet and shoulders, etc.), which have an indirect effect on the spine.
Chiropractic care is recognised as a safe and effective form of manipulative therapy for musculoskeletal conditions. When supplemented with soft tissue techniques like Active Release Technique, remedial massage and exercise rehabilitation we have a very effective means to restore optimal movement and function to the body and removing pain from the musculoskeletal system.
Sports Chiropractic refers to the use of more than one modality to address your problem. This allows for a multimodal approach to your problem, therefore it gives you a much better chance of recovery.
At North Sydney Sports and Chiropractic we use the following modalities;
- Spinal and Joint Manipulation/Adjustments
- Active Release Techniques
- Remedial Massage
- Exercise Rehabilitation
- Dry Needling
- Self Guided Corrective Exercises
Who Needs Sports Chiropractic?
Sports Chiropractors have undergone the same university training as other Chiropractors, however have gone on to complete further study in the fields of sports injury, rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, nutrition and other areas that relate to the management of an athlete.
This does not exclude the general population from seeing a Sports Chiropractor, in fact it means that you will have a much broader approach to the management of your condition by having more ‘tools’ and techniques to treat your condition.
Most people come to see a Chiropractor with some sort of pain or problem. We treat a range of conditions including;
- Back pain
- Neck pain
