Help With Sports Injuries

CHIROPRACTIC, THE ATHLETE'S CHOICE FOR SPORTS CARECharlotte chiropractor can help sports injuries

Many amateur and professional athletes now recognize that chiropractic treatment is an effective natural methodology for dealing with the needs of the sports participant.  Chiropractic deals directly, not indirectly, with the source of injury and involves no drug treatment(s) which can mask the problem rather than correct it. Not only is the pain quickly reduced or eliminated, chiropractic adjustments actually realign the body components, thus allowing the athlete to return to action sooner.

This is why 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. 
When athletes with sports injuries treat them with pain-killing drugs, they are often merely masking the symptoms of their injuries, so while they might be able to continue with their sport, they are often making their injury worse.  The chiropractic approach to sports injuries solves this problem by both eliminating the pain AND returning the body to health.

Since most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops, as well as an unusual amount of stress and strain on the back and other structural systems of the body in motion, chiropractic medicine is by far the most appropriate treatment methodology and Doctors of Chiropractic, such as Dr. Neva, are uniquely qualified to handle sports injuries. 

At Hands for Health we offer a full range of natural health services including Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) using Rocktape and chiropractic adjustments to return you to peak performance as quickly as possible and train your body to function as effectively as possible.
