The differences between a general chiropractor and a sports chiropractor are significant. A general chiropractor is a highly-trained professional who deals with a variety of individuals who are in pain and want relief. A sports chiropractor is a highly-specialized provider who has pursued years of post-graduate training beyond his/her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Sports Chiropractors take a multidisciplinary approach to treat their patients and have an extensive knowledge of sports and sports related injuries. They offer individualized care that extends beyond spinal manipulation to include direct treatment of muscles, joints and connective tissue. Their ultimate focus is on total body wellness, therefore helping the athlete reach optimal function and not just reducing pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are therapeutic treatments that can relieve lower back and neck pain, and help prevent injuries. During these procedures, chiropractors use their hands or small instruments to apply brief pressure to specific spinal joints. By applying this pressure, structural alignment is adjusted to improve your body’s physical function and athletic performance.

I came in with a partial tear in my hamstring and they have been the absolute best during my recovery! Staff is so kind, knowledgeable and will do anything she can to make you feel better during your time. I love that they use a variety of treatments and exercises so each appointment is different. I highly recommend Sports Recovery Annex!
