Suffer From A Sports Injury?
Sports chiropractors in South Burlington treat high-level, elite athletes, but they can and also do treat everyday people and everyone in between too. No matter who what level your at, a sports chiropractor can take care of everything from rehabilitation of an injury to preventing ones, too.
TYPE OF INJURIES WE TREAT
Many sports chiropractors treat common, overuse injuries. Runners who suffer with hip, knee or foot injuries or pain, overhead athletes like volleyball, baseball and tennis players who have shoulder or upper extremity injuries or pain and sports traumas, even concussions are managed by sports chiropractors in South Burlington. They can evaluate, diagnose and treat just about any sports related injury or performance issue. In fact, the sub-specialty of sports chiropractic was brought to the forefront of professional sports in 1976, when Olympic athletes started working with chiropractors specializing in sports medicine care. Shortly after in 1980, the first official appointment of a sports chiropractor to the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) Division of Sports Medicine was made.

A sports chiropractor will still do spinal manipulation, if needed. They evaluate and adjust extremities and joints that may demonstrate limited range of motion due to restriction. But that is just the beginning. Here are just a few of the treatments that you may get from a sports chiropractor:
- Muscle work
- Exercise rehabilitation
- Strength exercises
- Stretching activities
- Core strengthening exercises
- Advanced soft tissue techniques (Active Release Techniques®, Myofascial Release, etc)
