Chiropractors are concerned with patients overall well-being and recognize that many factors affect health, including: stress, exercise, diet, rest, environmental influences and heredity conditions. Chiropractic is the largest, drug-less, natural healing profession in the world, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic treatments aid in restoring proper nerve communication, movement of the spinal and extremity joints as well as releasing fascial and muscle tissues for a healthier, optimized, more pain-free life.

Sports Chiropractic for All Ages of Athletes
The focus of chiropractic sports specialists is to provide care in the conservative management, rehabilitation and performance optimization of neuromusculoskeletal system for athletic participants. Traumas, physical training or poor daily postures and repetitive stressors create interference with the body’s muscular, nervous and skeletal systems which impairs many important body functions and lowers resistance to disease and injury recovery. Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations (vertebrae in the spine which have lost their normal position and are causing pressure on connected tissue, joints and nerves) which inhibit the body from allowing total communication, preventing proper repair and recovery from occurring.
Our office focuses on restoring proper communication to you or your child’s muscles, joints and spine, while aiming to correct imbalances by re-conditioning weakened muscle groups with exercises and rehabilitative techniques. The office centers its goals on getting and keeping athletes in the game or you back into work and life symptom free. Many professional athletic and sports organizations recognize the value of chiropractic care in correcting and preventing injuries:
- The Players Association of the National Football League has made chiropractic care an
integral part of its sports medicine program.
- The United States Olympic Committee and several other nations selected chiropractors
as attending physicians at the Olympic Games.
- Chiropractors have also been retained at many other sporting events including the Pan
Am Games, Goodwill Games, National Sports Festivals, New York, LA and Boston
Marathons and Iron-man Triathlon.
- The Sports Council works closely with athletic organizations, as well as allied health
professionals, to promote better understanding of the value of chiropractic care in athletic
training and treatment.
