Can a chiropractor treat sports injuries?

Yes. A chiropractor can help restore function to joints that are not moving properly. In turn, this helps speed healing of soft tissues. You can reduce injuries by warming up, stretching and cooling down before and after every exercise or sports session. Dr. Jay Pearson, founder of our Kent, Washington chiropractic clinic completed special training to treat amateur and professional athletes and was an attending physician to the 2004 US Olympic Decathlon Team.
