Sports chiropractic is actually not all that different than regular chiropractic. A few things that are different are how often you would need to be seen, depending on how hard you are training or whether you have any sports injuries that need extra attention. The style of adjustment used. Our sports chiropractor in Boulder County, Dr. Shane Kurth, uses the most advanced technique on the market (TRT) with a combo of extremity adjustments. Yes! We adjust your shoulders, knees, elbows and toes if needed! Dr. Kurth was trained in extremity chiropractic when he was studying sports chiropractic in school.
Most athletes are in excellent shape physically and do not suffer from chronic injuries while they are in their prime. Now all of that training and competing will build up over the years making it difficult to continue to do the physical activities you love to do without suffering through them from all the prior wear and tear, UNLESS, you make sure you have an excellent health team around to counteract that excess physical stress the body is put under. With that being said a sports chiropractor should absolutely be part of your regular regime. There is not a single professional athlete that doesn’t keep a sports chiropractor near by to help them compete at their highest level, prevent sports injuries and allow them to continue what they love to do into their late adulthood.
Sports Chiropractic Care can help with some of these common injuries:
Hip Flexor Strain
Tennis or Golf Elbow
Every elite and professional athlete uses sports chiropractic services. There is not a professional team out there that doesn’t have a sports chiropractor on staff because they understand that is the most valuable doctor that team has to keep their players playing at an elite level. Check out these quotes from the best of the best.
“I never knew how much I could improve until I started seeing a sports chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically.” -Michael Jordan
“Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.” -Tom Brady
“Getting adjusted regularly–along with practicing other good health habits that my mom helped me to establish–are all part of my goal to win in life and on the field.” -Aaron Rogers
Neither one is better than the other. Dr. Shane Kurth, the owner of Apex Chiropractic in Louisville, Colorado, is a board certified physical therapist as well as a chiropractor of sports medicine so he can really shed some light on this. “What it really comes down to is who and when should you see the physical therapist vs. chiropractor. If you are trying to stay on top of your game and are not recovering from surgery or other major sports injuries then the sports chiropractor is your guy! If you have a minor injury you will want to start off with a few sessions of chiropractic care before you start physical therapy. Simply stated chiropractors work on relieving pressure on the nerves that control the nerves to the muscles, joints and ligaments. SO…If there is not proper nerve supply to the injured area (which is most likely why that injury occurred and we can also check at our office with our NeuroTECH equipment) you can do all the physical therapy you want and still have a much higher chance at reinjuring that same spot. As chiropractors replenish proper nerve flow to the injured area first, then physical therapy comes in to do what is was designed to do by retraining the injured muscles. If you are recovering from an ACL tear or other form of surgery it is best to start both immediately.”
This is a very common question we get. Unless you went to physical therapy school or chiropractic school most people put physical therapists and chiropractors under the same category. Although we may treat patients for similar musculoskeletal conditions these two professions should not even be close to the same category just like massage therapy and chiropractic care should not. It would be similar to saying exercising to lose weight and changing your diet to lose weight are the same. Physical therapist go to school for a total of 7 years to learn the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. Chiropractors go to school for a total of 8 years to learn how to treat disease, sports injuries, autoimmune disorders, digestive problems, as well as, many more conditions by treating the neurological pathways the brain uses to communicate with every muscle, cell, tissue and organ in the body with spinal and extremity adjustments. Both professions can take extra courses to specialize in certain fields like chiropractic sports medicine, rehabilitation, pediatrics and geriatrics. Dr. Shane Kurth did elect to do the extended curriculum to get board certified in physical therapy as well.
