  Title Chiropractic treatment and the enhancement of sport performance: A narrative literature review [review]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2010 Dec;54(4):210-221
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review
Abstract/Notes A literature search and narrative review was carried out with the intent of determining the current level of knowledge regarding the chiropractic treatment of athletes for the purpose of sport performance enhancement. Of the fifty-nine relevant articles retrieved, only 7 articles of variable quality were obtained which specifically investigated/discussed chiropractic treatment and its involvement in sport performance enhancement. The role of the chiropractor in sport, unsubstantiated claims of performance enhancement, theories of how chiropractic treatment may influence sport performance, and the available evidence for the benefit of chiropractic treatment on sport performance are reviewed and discussed. Areas and directions for future studies are postulated. At this time there is insufficient evidence to convincingly support the notion that treatment provided by chiropractors can directly improve sport performance.
Une recherche de la documentation et des textes descriptifs fut menée dans le but de déterminer le niveau de connaissances sur le traitement chiropratique des athlètes afin de rehausser leurs performances sportives. Parmi les cinquante-neuf articles pertinents récupérés, seulement 7 articles de qualité variable abordaient le traitement chiropratique et son rôle dans l’amélioration des performances sportives. Le rôle du chiropraticien dans le sport, les prétentions non justifiées d’amélioration des performances, les théories sur la façon dont le traitement chiropratique peut influencer les performances sportives et la preuve disponible des bienfaits du traitement chiropratique sur les performances sportives sont analysés. Les aspects et la direction des futures études sont hypothétiques. En ce moment, il n’existe pas suffisamment de preuves pour soutenir avec conviction la notion selon laquelle le traitement prodigué par un chiropraticien peut améliorer directement les performances sportives.
