Sports Chiropractic in Denver Colorado

Sports Chiropractic

Sports Chiropractic …

Is a discipline within the field of chiropractic which the sports chiropractor focuses on the non-medicinal treatment of sports injuries. Not only do chiropractors who practice sports chiropractic treat sports injuries, they initiate care that is preventative- care that prepares the athlete to achieve more and get injured less.  Many sports chiropractors will assess athletes so that they can locate, detect and correct potential weaknesses  or imbalances in the athlete that may predispose them to injuries. Helping an athlete prevent injuries is a mainstay of sports chiropractic care.

Sports Chiropractic

I like to call it “sports medicine without the medicine.”  Chiropractors are capable of adjusting the spine and extremities when necessary to restore proper biomechanics and help injuries heal faster and more complete. Usually athletes seek sports medicine care once they have been injured. If injuries are bad enough it may require invasive procedures. Having a chiropractor on your health care team can be a wise adjunct to help the athlete excel.

Sports Chiropractic

Ten years ago it was commonplace to see physical therapy and orthopedics and athletic trainers as primary pieces of a sports medicine staff but  nearly unheard of to have a chiropractor working with a sports medicine team on a professional level. Ten years ago I was fortunate enough to be one of the co-founders of the United States Sports Chiropractic Federation. Our mission was to do just that- help the other health care professionals see the value of having a sports chiropractor.

Now nearly every team in the four major sports has a chiropractor as some part of the team. Sports chiropractic has evolved to the point where athletic trainers and medical staff has come to appreciate the unique talents a chiropractor can bring to the sports medicine environment.

sports chiropracticEvocare Center for Physical Health has a sports injury clinic component available in Lakewood, Colorado where sports chiropractic is available to professional athletes, elite athletes, youth athletes and weekend warriors alike.

      I couldn’t imagine not having the therapeutic laser at our chiropractic clinic. It is applicable and effective for so many things. Particularly things where chiropractic care isn’t the primary treatment of choice like knee arthritis or finger arthritis. Whats really cool is when you can combine treatments like spinal decompression, oxygen therapy, laser therapy along with metabolic balancing. You get a snowball of positive healing effects and they cascade in the patients favor. Injuries effect multiple tissues and different modalities, therefore it stands to reason that if you apply appropriate treatment to those individual tissues, which are, in part, separate ‘mini-injuries’ the injury, as a whole, whole gets better faster…and more complete.

    This sounds like a great chiropractic office, my mother in law lives in the Lakewood Littleton area and I am sending her the link now- she gets a lot of sciatica pain that they could help her with

    The chiropractic clinic I was going to before I relocated had a massage therapist that worked on stress reduction. Just as you mentioned it did wonders for my migraine headaches!

      Not all chiropractic treatments are appropriate for all people and at all times. There are different therapies needed for different conditions and also at different stages of the injury or condition. Massage therapy at a chiropractic just gives the patient and the doctor another modality to use when its needed.

      Over the last 14 years we at our chiropractic and wellness clinic, Evocare Center for Physical Health, have relentlessly added technology and ancillary natural alternative and complimentary treatments. Treatments like oxygen therapy, spinal decompression therapy, sports medicine core training protocols that are really advanced and effective, and laser therapy using the K-laser.

    It looks like your Evocare chiropractic clinic in Lakewood is good at sports chiropractic care. When I ran track in college my back was always getting out of whack – something not too often associated with cross-country running. The professionals here had just the right touch. Definitely seems like you have a handle in Lakewood and Littleton and Denver.

      Thank you, Janice. I started out in a tiny room in Littleton… 15 years ago. Wow, time flies. As the years have gone by we’ve always tried to develop new method and techniques as well as explore new technology to be better prepared to find natural solutions for our patients. Thank you very much!

    I don’t know any chiropractic clinic nearby so it’s good seeing that you have there a progressive chiropractic clinic.
