Athletes are discovering how sports chiropractic can optimize their performance. Freeing stuck and inhibited joints, releasing muscles and fascia, improving the general function of a body region, and reducing pain all are beneficial for athletic performance. Credentialed sports chiropractors learn various methods for examining and treating athletic conditions. This can be for rotator cuff problems in the shoulder, knee pain, ankle sprains, foot/orthotic problems or other issues beyond neck and back pain.
