Sports Chiropractic

If you’re active in a sport, you don’t like being sidelined. An ache, pain or injury can throw off your game. The medical doctor typically says you have to stop. When it’s your outlet in life or you have an upcoming competition, however, that’s not a choice you want to make.

At Novo Chiropractic Sports & Wellness Center, we work with athletes to make sure they return quickly to their game. Our recommendations are designed to get you from the point you are now to where you want to be.

Benefits You May Experience

Here are some of the ways that sports chiropractic can help you:

  • Improve range of motion and function
  • Decrease pain
  • May help to prevent injury
  • Help you recover from injury
  • Enhance your performance

Working With Your Goals

When you become a patient at one of our offices, we’ll sit down with you to make a plan that matches your goals. Whether you want to shave minutes off your time or build your flexibility, we can help determine the changes you need to make to get there. Your chiropractor will look at your body’s biomechanics, then compare them to optimal and see where you are. After, we can create a plan to reach your individual goals.

Chiropractic, Taping and Manual Therapy Available

Along with chiropractic adjustments, our doctors can do athletic taping, manual therapy and rehabilitation. Your rehabilitation strengthens your muscles and neurological activation and is easily done during your activation or cooldown routines. You’ll include your specific rehabilitation exercises as part of your normal routines, giving you a better performance and a higher level of prevention.

We may need to start a little smaller, depending on the nature of your problem and whether you’re injured. As you get better, we can add more technical work until your rehab is simply a part of your training routines and all you have to do is keep going and maintain your progress.

Working Toward a Quick Recovery

Our athletic patients want to know when they’ll start to see results. Our average patient is about 40-60% better within two weeks. Within six weeks, it’s more like 80-90% better. Keep in mind that your results are based on your ability to follow our recommendations. Our programs have an outstanding 95% satisfaction rate!

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a sports chiropractic evaluation different from a regular chiropractic appointment?

We provide more in-depth evaluations for athletes who come in. Some sports chiropractic patients may just need adjustments and others will have other things going on so we need to focus on different issues. We’ll find out the problem and address it. In addition, we will keep an eye on the other issues that aren’t the primary problem.

Do you see athletes of all levels?

Yes, from high school athletes to weekend warriors to professional athletes, we can provide effective care.

In addition to chiropractic care do you offer other therapies for athletes?

Yes, we provide physiotherapy, athletic taping and rehabilitation.

Will it benefit me to come in before my race or game to get adjusted?

It may! We have lots of athletes who will come in before their race and get adjusted. A lot of times they report how well they did. Of course, we can’t promise you’ll perform well but we are confident that chiropractic is highly helpful.
