If you're like most athletes, you'll want to be at the "top of
your game" for as long as you can. An increasing number of
professional athletes, as well as professional and Olympic

"competitive edge." Athletes such as Jerry Rice, Chris Carter,
Barry Bonds, Evander Holyfield, Tiger Woods, Al Unser Jr. and

How does chiropractic create a "competitive edge?"
Much like a high performance race car, the
human body must be in proper alignment to operate at it's peak performance. Regular chiropractic care keeps the body functioning at optimal capacity
by maintaining proper spinal alignment which helps to eliminate
the biomechanical and musculoskeletal factors that often lead to
Many sports-related injuries involve the spine.
Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength,
slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance.
Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become
increasingly popular. Professional sports teams, Olympic
trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractic
doctors…because they demand results.
Chiropractic care helps restore function to the spinal joints
that are "locked up", fixated, and not moving properly. Besides
helping to relieve pain chiropractic care can also help reduce
inflammation. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments depend on proper
joint movement and nerve supply for peak performance. Injuries
to these tissues can reduce range of motion, affect delicate
nerves, decrease blood supply, and take you out of the game.
Normalizing spinal function helps speed up the healing of these
soft tissues and reduce the deconditioning effect of being on
the sidelines. Proper spinal function is essential for peak
performance at work or play.
An aerobics exercise program or a plan of brisk walking can
improve muscle tone and help you avoid strains, sprains and
other activity restricting health problems.
Whether you golf, play tennis, or walk the best treatment for
sports injuries is prevention!
