Anyone that is active can end up with a sports injury that would benefit from being treated by a sports chiropractic clinic. Many amateur and professional athletes are sidelined with neck and back injuries that could be avoided. Others sit it out on the bench because their spinal injury does not respond to ordinary treatment. Still, others are playing, but at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not balanced. Progressive coaches, athletes, and doctors are realizing that pain killing drugs are not the answer. They merely cover up the symptoms, deceiving the athlete into actions which could make the injury more serious and longer lasting.
The Bozeman Back and Neck Clinic's chiropractic approach to health closely relates to the needs of the sports participant. Most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops, and body positioning that places an unusual amount of strain on the back and structural system. Our Bozeman chiropractors consider a person as an integrated being, giving special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.
Sports chiropractic is a natural health care method that stresses the importance of keeping all the systems of the body functioning efficiently so the player enjoys peak performance, experiences a minimum injury risk, and has fast recuperative powers. Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams, have retained sports chiropractors to provide care. Joe Montana, Nolan Ryan, Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jubbar, and Carl Lewis all utilize chiropractic care. The Players Association of the NFL has officially incorporated sports chiropractors as a regular part of care. Chiropractors have been selected as attending doctors at the Olympic Games and at national and world championships in track and field, cycling, volleyball, powerlifting, aerobics, and triathlons. The Bozeman Back and Neck Clinic will not only help get you out of pain, but will try to find the cause so your symptoms don't return. “Lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to a chiropractor for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.” – Tiger Woods.
