Sports Injuries & Chiropractic Treatment

Sports injuries often occur because something gives way.

Sporting activity puts the body under exceptional physical stress and it is therefore vital that your muscles are fully activated so that they can:

(a) Stabilise the joints (which is their job).

(b) Provide the driving force necessary for you to effectively participate in the sport of your choice (allow you to operate at maximum efficiency).

Ridding the body of muscle weakness

The keyword is “prevention” i.e. make the patient as “bullet-proof” as possible. With Afferent Input Muscle Testing, the first priority is to rid the body of any muscle weakness making it more robust and resistant to injury as well as giving it the capability to operate at maximum efficiency. The diagnostic system is also highly effective in getting to the root cause of recurring injuries. If a sportsperson is already injured then again it is vital to ensure nerve supply is at it’s best as well as using other treatment procedures such as ice, massage, taping and rehabilitation exercises.
