Sports therapy and chiropractic treatment


Sports Therapy And Chiropractic Treatment

Alternative medicine therapies are practices that provide treatment for the various ailments,

without the use of modern medicine. There are various types of alternative medicine including

acupuncture, sports therapy and chiropractic medicine.

Sports therapy

Sports therapy is a healthcare method that is focused on prevention of injury and getting the patient

back to optimum levels of functioning fitness. The fitness goals are usually sports specific, regardless

of the patient’s age, sex, ability and other determining factors.

A sports therapist (also a profession that is not commonly recognized or known for what they do) is

a healthcare professional who has the knowledge and ability to do the following


use sports and exercise principles to better performance, preparation and prevention of



provide first aid to injuries and train in basic life support where sports are concerned


assess, treat and refer the patient to the particular specialist in case they require the

particular line of treatment


use sports massage and remedial massage techniques in a sports related exercise context


suggest appropriate rehabilitation for long term treatment of specific injuries

Sports therapists also focus on recognizing, evaluating, treating and managing injuries in general.

They also focus on rehabilitation and there are many sports therapists who are trained in principles

that have practical and evidence based philosophies with solid sport science foundations

Clearing misconceptions

Sports therapy is not about just sports massage. But sports massage is an integral part of their scope

of practice. Sport therapists should not be confused with physiotherapists because they apply

physiotherapy skills. While physiotherapists treat diseases and deformities with just physical

methods, sports therapy also uses drugs in addition to massage, heat treatment, electricity and

Chiropractic medicine

Sports therapy and chiropractic treatment


Chiropractic medicine is a form of an alternative medicine or complementary medicine. A

chiropractor is a healthcare professional who diagnoses and treats neuromuscular disorders by

manual adjustment and/or manipulation of spine. Chiropractors reduce pain and improve

functionality of patients and educate them on how they can maintain their own health via exercise,

ergonomics and other therapies that are focused on treating back pain.

Chiropractors focus on the relationship between nervous system and the spine. They believe that

the biomechanical and structural changes in the spine can affect the nervous system. Chiropractic

treatment can also restore the structural integrity of the spine and reduce pressure on the

neurological tissue – improving the overall health.

Chiropractic treatment is best used for lower back pain, neck pain, repetitive strains, headaches,

sports injuries, car accident injuries and arthritic pain. While chiropractors focus on treating

neuromusculoskeletal disorders, chiropractors also treat other problems and often refer the patients

to other specialists and health practitioners who have multiple specialities and could offer further

focused treatment for the various ailments.

Massage centers in Bronx and chiropractors in New York like the Active Care Chiropractic and

Natural Wellness Centre offer many alternative medicine treatments that include acupuncture in

Bronx and NY.
