Sports Medicine At Our Chiropractic Clinic
Why Choose Chiropractic Care for Your Sports Injury?
Chiropractic medicine is the ideal treatment option for many sports-related injuries because it is noninvasive, drug-free and has been proven to return athletes to competition faster than other types of treatment.
The patient-specific treatments provided at Marcum Chiropractic Clinic will enable your body to heal itself more safely and efficiently than by consuming anti-inflammatories and pain-killers. Another great thing about chiropractic care is it can treat your whole body; chiropractic medicine can address most injuries in virtually any part of your body (not just your spine!).
Why Seek Care at Marcum Chiropractic Clinic?
Athletics has been a lifelong passion, which helped lead Dr. Hartwig into his career as a chiropractic physician. He played college football and has significant experience as an athlete and coach with numerous other sports/activities. Currently, his favorite athletic pursuits are weight-lifting and alpine skiing.
Doctor Hartwig obtained his Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®) credentialing from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™. This certification is specific to physical fitness and the evaluation and treatment of injuries encountered in sports.
The CCSP® certification exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. The CCSP® designation is significant as less than 7% of all chiropractic physicians have attained this level of postgraduate education.
