The short answer is no, Sports Chiropractic is not just a trend. There is a general frustration within the Chiropractic community about the quality of care provided. The medical community too would like to see more evidence based practice.
We’re seeing a transition towards Chiropractors bringing in new skills to their practice. Treatments are starting to also have a good balance of soft tissue work and exercise rehabilitation.
Any time a practitioner betters their skills, this growth will feed back positively into the work they do with their clients.
There are so many different options of treatment available. There is no one right answer. Every single service is beneficial to someone. It is important that when looking for a practitioner, you find someone aligned with your values. This will ensure your best interests are at heart.
