Yet, as your Clayton sports chiropractor we know that sports injuries are something all players have to struggle with at one time or another. Dr. Jennifer McCleary is both a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist®.

Just some of those sports include volleyball, soccer, football, roller derby, water polo, track and field, triathlon, rugby, BMX, basketball, baseball, cycling, gymnastics, wrestling, bobsled, luge, weightlifting, rowing, field hockey, martial arts, boxing, and the performing arts. She has provided superb care to competitive athletes and fitness enthusiasts for her entire career.  Still, she says she will "work with individuals of almost any age and activity level as long as there is a willingness to be well". So contact your chiropractor in Clayton instead of letting your knee, neck, back or nerve pain get you down. Sports injury treatment in Clayton offers both immediate and long term pain relief. Here at Triad Sports and Family Chiropractic, we offer several treatments for sports injuries. 

What Types of Sports Injuries can be Treated with Chiropractic Care by a Chiropractor in St. Louis?

The most common types of sports injuries that we treat with sports chiropractic care include sprains and strains, tendonitis, disc injuries, impingement syndromes, and "pinched nerves."  We also worked with many athletes with injuries from contact and semi-contact sports like football, rugby, basketball, soccer, and mixed martial arts. However, we also see a lot of injuries from repetitive movement sports like running, cycling, swimming, and golf. Really any sport can result in a sports injury.  We generally recommend you seek chiropractic care within three to seven days following any sports injury. Your muscles and tendons will be on the mend, and it’s time to treat them. It is the best time to begin chiropractic care of the injured area as soon as the tissue starts healing.
