FAQ

Do you see athletes of all ages?

Yes, we have provided care for athletes across the spectrum, from elementary, high school and collegiate athletes to adult athletes of all ages. One of our patients golfs regularly and she’s in her 90s!

What are the most common types of sports injuries you see?

Sprains, strains, knee injuries, plantar fasciitis, golfer’s/tennis elbow, and shin splints are common injuries for which patients seek our care.

Could chiropractic help reduce my reliance on pain medication?

Yes. If you find yourself depending on OTC or prescription painkillers and would like a natural approach to pain relief, you should consider chiropractic care as it alleviates pain related to sports injuries.

Is maintenance chiropractic care beneficial for athletes?

Yes, adjustments can keep your body “tuned up” so you can perform at your best in your sport of choice and potentially avoid injuries. It’s better for athletes to see us more frequently because if you just come in on an as-needed basis you’re just waiting for symptoms to pop up.

So depending on how hard you work out we recommend athletes come in once a week. Some come in once a month; it depends on how hard they’re working out and how serious they are about excelling in their sport.

Will you give me exercises I can do?

Yes, we will provide you with stretches and exercises to keep your spine aligned and your body functioning at its peak.
