Guide to Visiting a Sports Chiropractor
From amateur to professional levels, all athletes work hard to perform their best.

Below, Dr. Milam and our team at Milam Chiropractic and Sports Therapy serving Tustin, CA, share how visiting a sports chiropractor can help.
What Is a Sports Chiropractor?
Sports chiropractors address both pain and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, as do all chiropractors. However, sports chiropractors receive additional training in sports medicine and provide treatment techniques that target sports injuries and performance issues.
