Absolutely. Regular chiropractic care during childhood, especially when playing sports, is very helpful to helping their body perform and recover the best, as well as preventing future physical ailments.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) are licensed doctors who does diagnosis and either preforms and/or recommends treatment. That includes all areas of the neuromuscular system. The question is what is causing the problem with the area and that requires diagnosis. Diagnosis can't be done without an examination. If the cause is appropriate and responsive to conservative care then Chiropractic care with it's many therapeutic treatments is important and appropriate. Even if the problem has a permanent and/or structural component the treatments may still help, but may not totally eliminate the underlying cause. Don't wait to have the examination, as the sooner the problems is detected and treated the better.

Absolutely. I recommend going to a chiropractor who specializes in Active Release Techniques. Go to and hit the find a provider button to find someone in your area. Just make sure they are a chiropractor because there are other specialists on that website. This way they can release all the hip muscles and adjust them for maximum impact.

Yes, a Chiropractor can adjust hips. However many times hip pain is actually due to the nerves and muscles to the hip area being compressed and not being able to fire properly. Those nerves are actually in the low back and tail bone. So when the low back and tail bone gets adjusted the hip pain goes away.
The answer to your question is yes. Football is a contact sport. The are many ways that the body can become misaligned.Your chiropractor should do an exam to determine what the problem is and correct it.
Of course! Tons of athletes from kids to weekend warriors to the pros use chiropractic to keep them the game and at their best.
