Sports Chiropractic at Funk Chiropractic

If you are active in a sport, being adjusted is essential to staying in the game. You want your body to move and function the way it’s designed to. That’s the only way you can perform at your best ability!

If you have limited mobility in an area—whether your arms, legs, back or neck—it will limit your performance. By keeping your entire body working as it should, you can achieve your best level yet.

Recover From an Injury

You don’t have to experience an injury to benefit from chiropractic care. It’s a common reason, however, that many athletes see a chiropractor. We can help you recover, then make sure you know the proper strength and stretching exercises to protect different regions of the body. That will give you the power to limit your injuries, which are always a big risk due to the repetitive nature of most sports.

Exercise Plans Available

Dr. Funk teaches a variety of different exercise plans based on specific injuries or regions of the body that need to be improved. You’ll receive an exercise plan as a part of your care with us, ensuring that your body works to its full capacity.

Sports Physicals Available

You can get a sports physical at our office even if you have never been a patient with us. They’re typically completed for high school-level athletes. All you or your child need to do is bring in the required form that your school or organization provides. We’ll go through each requirement, which may include

  • Listening to the heart and lungs
  • Feeling the abdominal area
  • Orthopedic mobility testing
  • Checking basic vital signs

You can think of a sports physical as a general health checkup, making sure that you can safely engage in the physical activity associated with your sport.
