Chiropractic Adjustments For Athletes?

As an athlete, you know that your athletic performance is heavily impacted by pain. Luckily, you don’t have to suffer from chronic pain to benefit from our chiropractic services for back pain, neck pain, and more. Oftentimes, sports injuries – even seemingly inconsequential ones – or overused muscles can create a functional imbalance. Certain muscles may disengage and cause other muscles to work harder in order to compensate. This imbalance can not only affect your athletic performance but also cause inflammation or other pain. Because your body is a complex system of interacting parts, it needs regular maintenance, which our experienced sports chiropractor can provide. Getting routine chiropractic treatments is almost like getting a tune-up or an oil change for your car.

Local Sports Chiropractor

Dr. Knight is a skilled sports chiropractor, and he can help restore your body’s natural balance. Using AMIT (Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, also known as Muscle Activation Technique), Dr. Knight will discover where your imbalances are, correct them, and help improve your athletic performance while avoiding further injury. AMIT is great for athletes with pain, as this technique allows an experienced chiropractor to restore function to an overloaded or inhibited muscle.

Throughout my entire athletic career, I have been plagued with aches and pains and subtle injuries, and unfortunately, the occasional serious injury that resulted in a big setback. I have been working with Dr. Knight for about 3 months, and through the process, I have begun to feel better the longer and more consistently I am treated. His practice of muscle activation and spinal adjustment has helped me become aware that those daily aches and pains I was so used to dealing with can be avoided! I was coming off a newly diagnosed grade 3 slap tear and a partial pec tear when I first went in. The assessment process showed me that I had a lot more issues than I had known. Through time, my shoulder feels stronger and more stable than in the last 2 years and my pec is back to full function. Jeff has brought an awareness even to my training of what specific muscles are lacking and what are being overworked. The lack of balance I had is what would eventually lead to those serious injuries I would suffer from periodically. I feel fortunate to be able to work with Dr. Knight and am excited about all he has been able to help me with thus far and where he will help me go from here.

Working with Dr. Knight has been crucial for me in my competition season this year. This being my fourth year competing in CrossFit as a professional athlete, I’ve started to have some issues with my lower back and shoulder. Dr. Knight has been reactivating muscles in my body that were not firing, which was causing imbalance and discomfort in my body as I trained. It’s an amazing experience having him do the testing and to notice the lack of strength in those muscles. Within 15-20 minutes of him working on them, he will retest and in that moment I will experience them locking into place as they are now firing the way they are supposed to! Thank you, Dr. Knight for keeping me healthy and allowing me to do what I love.
