What is Sport Chiropractic and What Sports Injuries Can It Treat?

Sport chiropractic is a focused area within chiropractic that involves the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries.

Sport chiropractic focuses on providing soft tissue treatments, including Active Release Techniques (ART) and medical acupuncture), spinal and other joint mobilization and manipulation and rehabilitation exercise prescription. Sports chiropractic also involves an understanding of the biomechanics of various sports and fitness activities, physical therapy modalities, bracing, and athletic taping (including kinesiotaping).

Sport chiropractic specializes in treating all regions of the body, including sports injuries incurred to the shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists, hands, feet and hips, as well as performance enhancement.

What Can I Expect From a Sport Chiropractic Session at SEMI?

A typical sport chiropractic assessment at SEMI will include a period for history taking, movement pattern analysis, handson assessment, patient education and an individualized treatment plan. You treatment plan will always include handson manual therapy, education about your condition or sports injury and a personalized exercise program specific to your needs.

Please bring active wear (shorts, tshirt or tank top, and running shoes) to your appointment, as active exercise will comprise a part of most of your sport chiropractic sessions.

What Other Services Do SEMI's Sport Chiropractors Offer?

Sport chiropractors can have a background in Kinesiology, Personal Training, Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, Ergonomics, Manual Therapy and Kinesiotaping.

At SEMI, our sport chiropractors continually engage in ongoing education to help provide you with the latest evidencedbased treatment approaches. Your sport chiropractor will draw on all of these tools to help return you to the sports and activity you love quickly and painfree.

Do I Need a Doctor's Referral to See a Sports Chiropractor?

No. All registered chiropractors are primary care practitioners, which means that they do not need a physician's referral to see a patient. To be 'registered', one must be licensed by the Ontario College of Chiropractors.

All chiropractors at SEMI are registered, and are therefore qualified to assess and treat any individual without having first seen a physician. The chiropractor may then refer the patient to a physician if they feel a medical opinion is required. SEMI chiropractors routinely communicate with clients' doctors to ensure the highest quality of care for each person.

Is Sport Chiropractic Covered by my Extended Health Benefits?

Absolutely. The registered sport chiropractors at SEMI each have a billing number, which is recognized by all insurance companies and third party payers. Some, but not all, insurance companies require a doctor's prescription for chiropractic before they will reimburse you.
