Athletes are prone to various injuries, depending on the nature of the sport. That is why all professional sports teams usually have medical support in the form of doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists who can attend to them immediately in case of a sudden injury or trauma. Sports injuries can be minor or major and, in either case, physical therapy is required sooner or later. Chiropractic manipulation also plays a role in faster rehabilitation and recovery.
In the case of a minor injury, physical therapy and chiropractic manipulation may be all that is required to rehabilitate the individual. For serious injuries, more medical intervention may be required. Sometimes, surgery and hospitalization is necessary. In most cases, the sooner the patient is able to receive physical therapy, the better.

Quality care for before and after an injury
While chiropractors and physical therapists are useful in the case of any post-trauma care, they can also prove helpful even during training. They can do this by helping the athletes get over any deficits they may have and improve and even optimize their overall performance.
There are differences between physical therapists and chiropractors.
A physical therapist will use different kinds of stretching and strengthening exercises and may also use non-invasive machines to help. The specialists here at Bc + PT are trained in using ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, mechanical traction, joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, myofascial technique, percussive massage and cupping that when combined in a specialized plan for each person will help give the best relief.
A chiropractor's field of expertise lies in the manipulation of different parts of the body. They can treat and offer pain relief for spinal and musculoskeletal problems. Additionally, sports chiropractors often used multimodal approaches to treat athletes and sports people.

Many times chiropractors and physical therapists work together. Having a personal team of chiropractors and physical therapists under the same roof is a unique feature of BC + PT.
