Sports Chiropractor Melbourne

Majority of people associate Chiropractors with treating back pain, neck discomfort, headaches or sciatica. While particular Chiropractic techniques are fantastic for managing these types of problems, many recreational and elite sports people consult Chiropractors on a regular basis for a variety of reasons. Our practices around Melbourne are associated with local sporting bodies and teams including amateur clubs (AFL, triathlon, bowls, cricket), as well as several professional athletes who visit our Sports Chiropractors and massage therapists to assist with their conditioning, structural alignment and ultimately sporting performance.

How Does Chiropractic Management Potentially Help Athletes?

  •  Proper nervous system function is essential to controlling & regulating every process in the human body, processes such as muscle contraction, balance & power development.
