Sports Chiropractor in Jacksonville

Improve your overall performance and prevent injuries with a sports chiropractor.

An athlete’s physical health is their greatest asset. To win the game – whether recreational or professional – an athlete has to be faster, stronger, and more flexible than their opponents.

Seeing a sports chiropractor can help Jacksonville athletes get an edge over those they’re competing against.

Techniques Used by Your Jacksonville Sports Chiropractor

Athletes use chiropractic care for three reasons:

  • Injury prevention
  • Improved performance
  • Faster injury recovery

Those who choose chiropractic treatments want to avoid being sidelined for months due to surgery. They also know that prescription painkillers and muscle relaxants can dull their senses, slow reaction time, and lower their overall performance levels.

To best serve local athletes, the sports chiropractors at Premier Chiropractic and Performance include a variety of treatment options. Varying the techniques used can help athletes achieve faster, more profound results, especially in sports performance.

FAKTR Soft Tissue Techniques

Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR) is a treatment that includes manual and instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques. The goal is to improve mobility and flexibility by reducing soft tissue adhesions and fascial restrictions, which can slow an athlete down after an injury.


Your sports chiropractor will place multiple cups in areas that are sore or injured. The cups create suction and can help athletes by:

  • Improving blood circulation
  • Reducing pain
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Massaging deep tissues
  • Promoting relaxation

Instrument Adjustments

An impulse adjusting instrument is used to deliver gentle, precise adjustments to the joints and extremities. It provides targeted treatment to specific areas, wherever you’ve been injured or are experiencing tenderness, tightness, or strain.

Dynamic Taping

Also known as kinesiology tape, dynamic tape is an acrylic adhesive that provides a four-way stretch, strong elastic resistance, and various recoiling grades. The goal is to reduce the body’s workload during activity by absorbing force.

Hyper-Volt Therapy (Massage Gun)

Used as a complement to other soft tissue techniques by your Jacksonville sports chiropractor, this massage gun provides deep tissue vibrational massage. The goal is to relax sore muscles, reduce stiffness, and improve mobility.

Rehab to Fitness

Rehab to Fitness is a program that teaches sports chiropractors how to help their patients progress from post-injury rehabilitation back to a functional fitness program.

Athletes of All Kinds Can Benefit

Student-athletes, professional athletes, and weekend warriors can all achieve improved performance by incorporating chiropractic treatment.
