Sports Chiropractor Colorado Springs

Woman stretchingFrom weekend warriors to Olympic athletes, active people can experience a broad array of benefits by having a chiropractor on their team. Dr. Jason has had the privilege of traveling to the 2012 Olympics with the judo and wrestling teams. He adjusted the first female gold medalist in judo history. We continue to see many elite athletes daily in the office.

You don’t, however, need to be an elite athlete to benefit from what we do. Perhaps you’re a mountain biker and flew over your handlebars during your weekend ride. You might have a high schooler who’s active in sports. No matter what your level of participation is, we welcome you to Freedom Chiropractic.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Here are some of the primary reasons why athletes visit chiropractors:

  • Improves performance
  • May prevent injuries
  • Relieves pain
  • Increases flexibility, speed and power
  • Helps with injury recovery

Getting Started

On your first visit, you’ll have a thorough evaluation and examination, which includes taking X-rays so that we can fully evaluate your spine. We also may perform a functional movement assessment if needed.

From the information we gather, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan. This plan includes adjustments, rehabilitation and home care recommendations. With our multi-pronged approach, the goal is to get you back to your activities as quickly as possible.

Recover From an Injury

Though we encourage you to seek chiropractic care to stay well, we also help people who have experienced an injury. If you’ve been injured, we’ll take care to provide you with the best options to help you heal. Likely, we’ll recommend a higher frequency of visits at the beginning, which allows us to make some traction in starting your body’s healing process.

Typically, you’ll see changes within the first couple of weeks of care. A full correction can take longer, depending on what you’re doing at home in your own time. We’ll give you the tools and information for you to take charge of your recovery.
