Get back in the game, quickly
Sports chiropractic works to prevent and treat the injuries you face every day as a passionate or professional athlete. Our goal is to keep your body in balance so you can optimize your performance, or treat an injury.
We understand you want to get back to your sport as quickly as possible, and that’s what we want, too. We work efficiently and effectively to get you in, out and back at it.
A strong muscle is only as good as it is flexible
We believe that a strong muscle is only as good as it is flexible. When you have proper joint mobility, you can decrease muscle adhesions (knots), help prevent injury and get the full range of motion you need.
Plus, athletes face a lot of repetitive motion strain. Take the tennis player with tennis elbow, the runner with hamstring strains and the weight lifter with bicep tendonitis. Every athletic activity impacts the body and has the potential for injury–even yoga.
We work with a variety of techniques tailored specifically to the athlete and use more than just our chiropractic adjustments to keep you at the top of your game.
Beyond the bones and muscles
What sets an athlete apart? It’s not just the ability to prevent injury, but to also optimize body functions. There are five factors of structural health: balance, coordination, flexibility, joint range of motion and strength.
So a whole-body approach to training also includes:
Functional neurology: Brain function is just as important as joint mobility. That’s because the brain controls the nerves, and nerves move muscles, muscles move bones. Functional neurology optimizes the brain and nervous system so that you can excel at a sport. Use this in conjunction with hyperbaric oxygen therapy to aid in the recovery of concussions, acute and chronic injuries or quick recovery from intense training days.
Customized nutrition: Every athlete will have specific demands for nutrition during training and performance. Knowing what your individual body needs can enhance all areas of your athletic life–a better metabolism, less inflammation, more endurance and faster recovery.
