Sports and Chiropractic

Whether you are a weekend warrior or a highly trained professional athlete, chiropractic care is extremely useful for recovering from injuries, preventing injuries, or improving the performance of your body:

When Robert Parish, former center for the Boston Celtics, was honored after his retirement, the first reason he gave for helping him to have the longest basketball career in history was regular chiropractic care.
Joe Montana credited regular chiropractic care for his quick recovery from back surgery and his ability to continue playing professional football.

Chiropractors help keep athletes on the field and help stop minor injuries from becoming major ones, and they do it without drugs or surgery. In addition, studies measuring agility, balance, power, speed reaction, and hand reaction time, have demonstrated that athletes under chiropractic care show significantly greater improvement over a control group that had received no care. After only six weeks of the study, the chiropractic group showed a 10.7% improvement while the control group showed only a 4.5% improvement.

At Knight Chiropractic, we examine the spine and extremities (ankles, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders) for misalignments that can cause interference with the nervous system in addition to pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms. We look at the whole person, knowing that an injury to one part of your body will affect other areas, and that effective care requires addressing all aspects of that injury. We also offer wellness care, which improves your overall health and performance, making you less susceptible to injury.
