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.


“Very friendly, professional, and make me feel safe! I was looking for a chiropractor who specialized in prenatal care when I was having back pain with my first child, and I am so happy to have found Dr. Brad. He helped me tremendously throughout my first pregnancy and now again throughout my second. Would highly recommend!”

“I cannot recommend Dr. Allison and Bakke Chiropractic enough! She has done an incredible job listening to my pain points, keeping me informed throughout each adjustment, and educating me on ways to improve my health - especially throughout the transition to working from home. The front desk staff is kind and attentive. The space is clean and sanitized. I know Bakke will always accommodate my ever-changing schedule with ease.”

“Dr. Kris Wakefield is the man. Being new to the Madison area, I needed to find a new chiropractor that could set me straight. After trying a clinic elsewhere in Sun Prairie and leaving unsatisfied, Bakke Chiropractic turned out to be the exact remedy I was searching for. Dr. Wakefield corrected my issue in fifteen minutes, whereas other clinics proposed three month treatment plans before I could expect relief.

He guided me through a few at-home stretched to help strengthen and maintain a few problematic neck and back muscles, and said he would be there whenever I needed an adjustment.”

“Dr. Phil is hands down the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I have a highly physical job that takes a toll on my body. But thanks to Dr. Phil I deal with less pain and feel better overall. Regular adjustments keep my body in tiptop condition. Besides being highly skilled, Dr. Phil is tremendously knowledgeable, compassionate, and personable. I would recommend his work to anyone.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with both Dr. Jen and Dr. Allison here at the Bakke Deforest clinic, and have to say they both are absolutely phenomenal to work with. Both of them were professional and helped me get back into top performance again. I try to recommend either of these two to any of my friends who complain of back pain.

I have also taken the opportunity to see the massage therapist at Bakke as well. It has been a little over a year since I used that service due to COVID, but I do plan to use that service again as soon as I can. They were one of the best messages I have.”
