Sports chiropractor Athens – About Health 1st Chiropractic

If you are looking for a sports chiropractor in Athens, GA, you have come to the right place. As a chiropractor in Athens, Dr. McClelland provides chiropractic treatment to the local Watkinsvile and Athens communities. This includes his role as a sports chiropractor.

What are the benefits of sports chiropractic?

You do not need to be a professional athlete to benefit from sports chiropractic. Anyone involved in physical activities should receive regular chiropractic adjustments in order to prevent injuries, facilitate healing and reduce wear and tear on the body.

Injuries like sprains, strains, pulled muscles, tendonitis, bursitis and joint problems in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot respond wonderfully to chiropractic care.

How Does Sports Chiropractic Improve Athletic Performance?

Chiropractors view a person as an integrated being, focusing on the nervous system, the spine, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Chiropractors approach the body holistically, and help athletes obtain peak performance by making sure that all of the body’s systems are functioning at their best, minimizing the chance of injury and facilitating efficient recuperation from any existing injuries.

“He felt that without chiropractic he would never have won.”

How Does Sports Chiropractic Work?

At  Health 1st Chiropractic, we understand that optimal health is only possible with a nervous system that is functioning free of interference. When there is a subluxation (or, partial displacement of a joint or organ) in the body that is causing nerve interference, the cells, tissues, organs and systems affected by that subluxation cannot function properly.

Dr. McClelland uses specialized instrumentation as well as 10 years of sports chiropractic clinical experience to pinpoint where these areas of stress are occurring in the body and then determine the best technique to remove any misalignments and tension, allowing the body to return to a healthier state. We also educate athletes on proper exercise techniques for their sport, as well as stretches and nutritional support.
