Sports & Chiropractic

Sports and Performance

Athletes want to win! Winning requires optimum performance. The ability to perform at the highest level depends on the proper function of the nervous system. Therefore, the athlete's nervous system must function at its peak level to compete in any sport or activity.


Chiropractic helps both professional and amateur athletes perform at their best. In addition, chiropractic is the only profession that deals with detecting and correcting subluxations. Subluxations are when spinal vertebrae are malpositioned and create interference with the function of the nervous system.


Subluxations not only create nerve interference that can alter the signals from the brain heading to the muscles, but they can also alter the signals that return to the brain to report how the muscles function. Chiropractic care focuses on correcting subluxations, thus removing the interference to the nervous system and allowing the athlete to perform at their highest possible potential.

How an Athlete Performs

Athletes require peak physical fitness to excel in their chosen sports. Proper spinal alignment and a healthy nervous system are crucial components of an athlete's ability to perform at their best. Chiropractic care, with its focus on maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system, can provide significant benefits for athletes, such as:

  • Enhanced strength and flexibility

  • Improved balance and coordination

  • Increased range of motion

  • Reduced recovery time between workouts

  • Decreased risk of injury


An athlete's performance depends on the harmonious functioning of their musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The nervous system controls and coordinates all body functions, including those essential for athletic performance, such as muscle strength, endurance, and coordination. Chiropractic care can help ensure the nervous system functions optimally, improving athletic performance.
