Dear Chiropractors and Professional Athletes,
The Sports Chiropractic Council of Hong Kong China (Known as SCCHK, 中國香港運動脊醫委員會) is a professional and educational association for Chiropractors with special interest in Chiropractic treatments of athletes. It is the only Chiropractic Sports Council that represent Hong Kong in the international chiropractic community.
Sports Chiropractors are recognized as expert providers of spinal and peripheral joint manipulation. By ensuring proper mechanics of the spine and peripheral joints, a sports chiropractor can influence a number of body functions; from balancing and restoring normal muscle tone through soft tissue techniques, to enhancing balance and proprioception, as well as minimizing compensatory joint stress and pathology. The sports chiropractor can enhance an athlete’s recovery from injury, prevent future injury (such as overuse/over-training syndromes) and improve athletic performance.
Professional, amateur and weekend athletes seek out Sports Chiropractors for many reasons:
Prevention of injury
Quicker recovery after training/games
Better balance sense
Athletes put physical demands on their body running, jumping, tackling and falling. These demands may present themselves as sprains, strains, chronic injuries and negatively effect performance. An athlete competing with the proper mechanics has the greatest ability to perform at their best.
Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams, have retained sports chiropractors to provide care. In the competitive sports world, professional athletes realize that their performance are can be benefited from chiropractic care. If you are interested to be affiliated or a professional sports chiropractor, please join us.
