Chiropractors with a special interest and experience in sports, keep many active Australians at their peak by treating neuro-muscular dysfunction and assisting body recovery. Using a combination of specific Chiropractic adjustments, exercise prescription and soft tissue therapies, it is the aim of the Sports Chiropractor to restore and enhance the body’s neuro-musculoskeletal system for peak performance on both a preventative and rehabilitative basis.
Nathan is one of the best in the diagnosis and treatment of sports related injury. In addition, through his extensive education he has an in-depth understanding of injury minimalization, rehabilitation measures, and a sound knowledge base of return-to-play criteria.
As a Sports Chiropractor I understand the importance of what is called the “kinetic chain”. The Kinetic chain refers to all the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments etc involved with performing a particular movement or action. For example, did you know that a low back or hip problem can contribute to your shoulder injury? This is a common presentation seen in people participating in overhead or throwing sports; if you have a movement limitation in your low back or even leg, it will interfere with your body’s ability to transfer the energy from the legs to the arm, which will place more strain on your shoulder.
Chiropractic sports practitioners are ideally suited to help athletes of all levels handle these challenges and make sure they reach their full potential in today’s competitive environment.
Your Sports Chiropractic appointment will include a detailed discussion of your past and present injuries, your athletic goals and a complete physical assessment to identify the source of your problems. This then allows us together to create a specific plan to get you back doing what you enjoy, as soon as possible.
Nathan’s approach to treatment is multimodal, this means he uses a range of techniques depending on your condition and preferences. These techniques can include specific adjustments to the spine and extremities, pain science education, mobilization, soft tissue therapies (myofascial release and instrument assisted techniques), rehabilitation and other movement/exercise therapies and sports specific technique advice.
