WHO ARE WE

When you hear the word CHIROPRACTIC - what do you think?

There are words bouncing around in your head - and we are here to challenge your very own thoughts.

What if we suggested it has nothing to do with “cracking” rather everything to do with understanding care for another is not defined by an isolated treatment method, rather being dynamic and adaptable with a patient focused approach.

Our purpose @kcsportschiro has always remained the same:

To EDUCATE & FACILITATE

Perception is a funny thing. The way a group is perceived is commonly due to an experience someone has with an individual or small group, whether good or bad.

Practitioners, no matter what discipline, will differ and vary in their treatment approach which is of benefit to our community as there is no superior approach to care for the majority, rather an appropriate approach to care agreed on by patient and practitioner.

We, the team @kcsportschiro are here to support and educate our community to ensure great practitioners, regardless of their titles, are available to facilitate your health and movement goals.

 How many hours of sleep did you get last night? One study cited below, looked at a group of adolescent athletes who slept on average < 8 hours per night were 1.7 times more likely to have had an injury compared with athletes who slept for ≥ 8 hours.

Does Your Image Have Your Back?

As primary care practitioners we are constantly trying to remain up to date with evidence based practice (clinical expertise, best research evidence, patient values and preferences). On a daily basis we will hear about an individual’s experience with previous diagnoses via imaging and work to change behaviours and prejudices about what they have commonly learnt or even read about...
