Sports and Chiropractic Care
Keeping your body and joints moving properly allows any athlete to perform at their highest level.
Chiropractic care is not just for the spine!
Chiropractors are also trained to adjust ankles, knees, shoulders, wrists and other joints that are commonly stressed by athletes.

Whether you are a professional athlete or enjoy playing pickup games with your friends, you want to be able to perform your best. Keeping your body and your joints moving properly allows any athlete to perform at their highest level. You may not know it, but many of your favorite athletes receive chiropractic care including: Aaron Rodgers, Jerry Rice, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Brady and Michael Jordan.

 

Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Many of our doctors at Bakke Clinic are also trained in other treatment techniques that greatly benefit athletes. Some techniques that our doctors use are various types of muscle work, stability and rehab exercises, kinesiology taping, electric stimulation, ultrasound and cold laser. Common sports injuries that we treat are sprains and strains, tennis or golfers elbow, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, and shin splints.

 

Many of our doctors at Bakke Clinic are trained in muscle work techniques including trigger point therapy and ART. ART is a form of muscle work that involves active stretching while applying pressure to specific muscles. Muscle work is important for athletes because it allows them to avoid muscle soreness and stiffness. Have you ever seen your favorite player with tape on their shoulder or knee? That is kinesiology tape, and it helps to promote endurance and to improve an athlete’s performance level.

By maintaining proper spinal and extremity alignment, you are on your way to not only performing your best, but preventing injuries as well. Preventative care is key to athletes of all levels because preventing an injury is much easier than treating one. Contact Bakke Clinic today to keep your performance in tip top shape.
