Chiropractic for Sports
THE ATHLETE’S CHOICE FOR SPORTS CARE
Many amateur and professional athletes are sidelined with injuries that could be avoided. Others sit it out on the bench because their injury does not respond to ordinary treatment. Still others are playing, but at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not in balance.
Progressive coaches, athletes and doctors are realising that pain-killing drugs are not the answer. They merely cover up the symptoms, deceiving the athlete into actions that could make the injury more serious. Probably more than any other health profession, Chiropractic’s approach to health closely relates to the needs of the sports participant. Most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops and positioning that places an unusual amount of strain on the back and structural system.
Doctors of Chiropractic consider a person as an integrated being, giving special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Chiropractic is a natural health care method that stresses the importance of keeping all the systems of the body functioning efficiently so the player enjoys peak performance, a minimum injury risk and fast recuperative powers.
Our Chiropractors are personally involved and passionate about a range of sports and whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, Chiropractic is beneficial to help you reach the health and sporting goals you aspire to.
Dr Murray listened to my history, didn’t judge me on my stupidity, examined me extensively and came up with a plan of treatment that he said “made him confident he could get me back in the gym again”. I never expected him to say that but I was intrigued so I followed his plan of treatment as advised.
Within a month, my symptoms had gotten noticeably better. I was back in the gym and not needing anywhere near as much pain relief. Within 3 months I was actually almost pain free, not needing any painkillers at all and training with as much intensity as I ever had; I was able to perform squats, deadlifts and other power movements that the surgeon said I would never be able to perform again. With continued treatment I became totally pain free and with Dr Murray behind me, I was able to realise my dream of becoming a competitive bodybuilder, qualifying for the British Championship Finals at my very first attempt.

I first started seeing King Chiropractic after getting some nasty niggles due to my intense training in the gym. As a Personal Trainer, I am acutely aware of how important it is to look after your body. Over the past year, my niggles have gone and now I aim to maintain a healthy spine. The whole team are so lovely, welcoming and are always very accommodating of my busy schedule.
