Therapeutic exercise, soft tissue treatment, and nutritional support are part of patient care when appropriate. Sprains, strains, tendinitis, bursitis and joint problems in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot can all be treated effectively with sports chiropractic care. The great bonus of sports chiropractic is not only drug-free and surgery free care, but also preventative and performance enhancing care.
Maintaining soft tissue movement and proper joint alignment will allow athletes to be prepared for their sport.

Following competition, they are treated to enhance the recuperative process after the stress of their particular event.
