Advantage Healthcare of Charleston is committed to helping patients achieve optimal health, using physical medicine therapies. A major focus of the practice, chiropractic care is often used in conjunction with other physical medicine disciplines, including massage and Physical Rehabilitation. One specialty that we offer is sports chiropractic, which not only helps athletes to recover from injury, but can also improve performance.
Drug-free, non-invasive, and surgery-free, chiropractic has proved effective in treating a wide range of ailments and painful conditions. Because athletes need to be free from medication and do not want the down time required by surgery, sports chiropractic is a perfect fit. Specifically trained to evaluate and treat athletes, our physical medicine specialists understand how to treat an injured athlete effectively. Chiropractic adjustment can even be beneficial for athletes who are not recovering from injury, because it is helpful in improving flexibility, increasing the range of motion, promoting better blood flow and good posture, and even decreasing the risk of injury.
Athletes who participate in football, wrestling, hockey, or other contact sports can benefit from sports chiropractic because it keeps the vertebrae properly in line even when the body faces repeated stress. Runners and other non-contact athletes find chiropractic adjustment useful as well, because sports chiropractic helps improve their overall condition. Sports chiropractic is beneficial because it treats the body as an integrated system, giving special attention to spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves, in order to help the pieces of the musculoskeletal system work together.
