At Kinney Chiropractic, here in Belmar NJ, athletes are one of the main groups of patients that we see on a daily basis. We know how important it is for our athletes to stay as physically healthy as they can be. Our athletes can start care young, playing sports on the youth soccer field, football field, or dance studio. Aches, pains, and injuries can worsen in athletes that we see at the High School or Collegiate level. More than anything, athletes just want to be able to perform and compete at their highest level, so maintaining pristine health is of utmost importance. Whether it’s team sports, the CrossFit athlete, the triathlete, or the weekend tennis or golf warrior, chiropractic care is crucial to keeping you on your game. Athletes know their bodies better than most, so when something is not feeling or functioning the way it should, they know it, and it affects their performance. We get it.
We always start with a detailed history. When, how, and where did the problem start? Delving into the past helps give us a better picture of how to proceed with care in the future. Then we will perform a thorough examination, including orthopedic, neurologic, and functional testing as well as posture and range of motion testing. Finally, we utilize digital X-rays so we can get a crystal clear picture of where the problem is. We don’t want to guess…we want to know.
