Chiropractic Care Winning Gold at The Commonwealth Games!
Following many months of preparation, thousands of athletes from around the world have arrived at the Gold Coast to compete in the Commonwealth Games. The games will wrap up shortly, but did you know that many athletes and sporting professionals incorporate chiropractic care into their overall wellness regimen?
Many not only have chiropractors to get them ready for the games but also throughout to ensure they are at peak psychical level. With the Australian love of sport, chiropractors regularly come across sporting-related ailments and provide care to patients who participate in sport.
The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) has long been committed to sport, having sponsored several elite athletes in the past, such as Olympic gold-medal winner Matthew Mitcham and champion swimmer Ellen Fullerton. Many of today’s athletes utilise a sports chiropractor to prevent injury and to improve biomechanical and neuromuscular function with the ultimate goal of enhancing performance.
Chiropractic is becoming more a treatment of choice by professional and amateur athletes. This has been evident in the treatment of collegiate, Olympic, and professional athletes and has enabled us to gain recognition.
Chiropractic care is not only limited to the more advanced athlete, but young athletes are able to benefit from chiropractic treatment as well. This is especially true in the areas of critical, acute, and emergency care. All chiropractors provide care in management, rehabilitation and performance optimisation.
