Chiropractic and Sports

McTimoney chiropractors work with patients of all ages and abilities to help resolve injuries and restore function.

McTimoney Chiropractic care for minor sports injuries

McTimoney Chiropractors have been involved in the treatment of sports people and sports-related injuries from the very beginning of the chiropractic profession and work with patients of all ages and abilities across all sports, including dance and gym work.

New patients often visit a McTimoney Chiropractor having already developed a problem,  but your chiropractor is not just concerned with the treatment of minor sports-related injuries but also how to help you understand how to prevent them in the first place, and how to help optimise your performance, irrespective of whether you are a professional sports person or someone who exercises for health and enjoyment. It doesn’t matter what level you are at – McTimoney Chiropractic sports care is still appropriate.

Body mechanics can be still be compromised without someone being aware of any clear clinical symptoms. If that is the case, then not only may they be prone to injury when applying that extra bit of effort, but, as they are not functioning correctly, then they may not perform to their maximum capability. As a discipline that deals with biomechanical (body mechanics) dysfunction, McTimoney Chiropractic is well suited to be included as part of the medical backup team of any sport.

How often a patient needs to visit their McTimoney Chiropractor is uniquely dependent on the individual, their sport(s), age, fitness, whether they compete or use sport, dance or go to the gym for general health and fitness.

A professional footballer tends to have a session every month off season, and roughly every fortnight during the season, but it really does depend on the individual person, whilst a non-competitive swimmer might have a session every 3 to 6 months.
