Sports Chiropractor Chatswood
Australians suffer from millions of sports-related injuries each year. A sports chiropractor not only plays an important role in recovery from injury but also injury prevention.
Chiropractic and injury prevention with a sports chiropractor
A high percentage of sporting injuries are not caused by a single incident, but by a build-up of stresses caused by muscular imbalance, poor movement patterns or poor spinal alignment. It is imminently more sensible to try to stop an injury recurring rather than patching it up again and again.
However, Chiropractic goes much further than simple repair work for injured muscles and joints.
Muscles, tendons and ligaments depend on proper joint movement and neurological input for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply and literally take you out of the game. Normalising the biomechanics of the body helps the healing of these tissues and reduces the de-conditioning effect of being on the sideline.
Chiropractic and performance
A properly aligned spine and balanced body works with greater mechanical advantage enabling more energy to be directed towards technique and power. Normalising joint range of movement also aids flexibility which helps athletes function at a higher level.
Chiropractic is now utilised by many within the athletic and sports community because an optimally functioning neuro-musculoskeletal system is an important factor when it comes to performance.
Chiropractic is used by top players in sports as diverse as tennis, ballet, boxing, athletics, racing, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, hockey, handball, rugby, running and weightlifting. Many elite athletes now consider their regular session with a chiropractor an essential component of their warm-up regime and look upon it as a precursor to the exertion and strain they are about to place on their body.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is chiropractic safe?
According to the New Zealand Government’s Commission of Inquiry, chiropractic care is “remarkably safe.” This the result of a conservative approach that avoids invasive procedures or the use of medication however, occasionally there have been some adverse reactions.
Chiropractors are 5-year university trained health professionals and are government registered and regulated. At Complete Health Chiropractic, Chatswood we use thorough testing and state-of-the-art digital technology to determine if chiropractic is right for you.
What makes the cracking or popping sound in some chiropractic adjustments?
With some adjustments you may sometimes hear a clicking or popping sound. This is simply caused by a release of gas that is dissolved in the lubricating fluid of the joint as spinal movement is restored. It can be likened to removing a lid from a fizzy drink.
However, there are many different ways to adjust the spine. Some Chiropractors use a hand-held instrument called an activator, others use pelvic blocks or cranial mobilisation to re-align the body. Specific, gentle techniques are used for adjusting pregnant women, babies, children, seniors.
How long will I need chiropractic care?
At Complete Health Chiropractic, Chatswood we like to offer a holistic approach that encourages prevention and long-term health rather than short-term relief alone but how long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
As health professionals it is our responsibility to provide you with guidance around chiropractic and lifestyle habits so you can make informed choices about your health. Like regular dental or eye check-ups or screening tests from your doctor, caring for your spine and nervous system is a vital part of maintaining your health and wellbeing.

Regardless of whether you come to us with pain holding you back or whether you come to us looking to optimise your body function, we are here to help you achieve your health goals.
What happens on my first visit?
The goal of your first visit is to get to know you and understand your unique situation to determine if chiropractic can help you. We use digital technology, thorough testing and x-rays, if clinically required, to assess the health of the spine and nervous system and look to find the underlying cause of your complaint. We aim to identifying the lifestyle factors that may also be contributing to your pain or condition.
Most of the people that come to us are referred by current practice members or GPs however Chiropractors are primary care practitioners with 5 years of university training and a medical referral is not required for consultation. We work collaboratively with other health professional to find the best solution for you.
