Sports Chiropractic Care in Stevens Point

An ankle sprain, for example, is a common injury that nearly every person has experienced at some point in their life. With such an injury, the ligament which connects the two bones of the ankle is sprained or stretched out. The bones have moved as a result. Chiropractic can help put the bones back into place. The adjustment can speed up healing time and reduce swelling time.

In addition to having ankle injuries, many athletes also come in with foot problems. As the foundation for the body, feet can take a real beating each day. Dr. LaRocque will examine them and, if warranted, suggest custom-made orthotics.

Benefits for All Ages

From high school (and younger) athletes who are eager to return to their sport, to weekend warriors and middle-aged athletes, chiropractic can help everyone. Here are some benefits:

  • Reduced pain
  • Increased performance
  • Decreased chance of getting reinjured
  • Increased strength
  • Faster recovery

As an athlete herself, Dr. Brit understands that athletes want to get moving again. “Chiropractic care addresses spinal and extremity alignment which can, in turn, take stress off the nervous system, improve function and decrease pain. It also allows proper movement patterns by aligning the bones and allowing the muscles to move like they are designed to without compensation. Compensation patterns can increase your possible risk of injury and do not allow you to reach your full athletic potential. I work with patients to get them back to moving and competing as quickly as possible.”

The Importance of a Thorough Exam

Because everything in your body is connected, it’s important we provide you with a comprehensive evaluation (before starting care). This evaluation will determine if there are misalignments in the primary area of pain, as well as screening for red or yellow flags in other areas of the body which could be contributing to your pain and dysfunction.

Whether your sport takes you to the court, field, fairway or bike path, we want to help you achieve peak performance. If you’ve been looking for a sports chiropractor, book an appointment with Dr. Brit at Champion Chiropractic today!
