Many professional tennis players make sure a chiropractor is available to them during tournaments to help keep them in top shape throughout a game that can sometimes last for several hours.
Some of the top Tennis players in the world are regularly treated by a chiropractor, including…

“I feel that chiropractic adjustments help to prevent injury… I try to go twice a week to a chiropractor, sometimes even more during big tournaments. I feel I am much more tuned-up with an adjustment. I support chiropractic very much. I think it is great for sports. I think its great for anyone!”.
Ivan Lendl, World Number One for 270 weeks in the 80s.
Tennis and Chiropractic
Although tennis elbow gets the most press among tennis-related injuries, chiropractors assert that they actually see more injuries to the lower extremities, as these are the areas that absorb the force created by the arm swinging the racket. Tightness in the shoulder blades of professional tennis players can lead to muscle pain and headaches, which chiropractic care can help to relieve.
Other Common sports injuries chiropractic may help with
- Cycling related neck, back, knee pain
- Running related pain caused by plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, IT Band Syndrome, patella (knee) tracking problems and hip bursitis
- Overuse traumas (neck, back, leg, foot, and wrist)
