Experts estimate that 90 percent of all professional and Olympic-level athletes use chiropractic to prevent injury, speed recovery, and improve athletic performance potential. Chiropractors with special training in biomechanics, sports injuries and athletic performance have a unique approach to the care they provide. They focus on:
- Staying in the game. “I never eliminate the athlete from their training environment. I always find ways to substitute some form of training to keep them psychologically in the game and minimize deconditioning.”—Dave Juehring, D.C.
- Small changes with big results. “When working with a new athlete it’s common to try to do too much at first. Small changes to the biomechanics of an elite athlete can have big results. I take into consideration their training schedule, competition schedule and find a good time to implement changes.”—Lisa Goodman, D.C.
- Ongoing collaboration. “Remember, just as the athlete is part of a team, so is the chiropractor. It’s important to work as a team player. When I am working with an athlete I always try to make sure I’m on the same page as their coach and other health-care providers.”—Michael Tunning, D.C.
- Good communication. “Elite athletes have a pretty good sense of their bodies. I listen carefully to get a clear understanding of the athlete’s needs, goals, and expectations.” --Edward Feinberg, D.C.
