Athletes & Wellness

Whether it’s during the season or in the off-season, Chiropractic care is becoming the competitive advantage that many athletes are now seeking.
When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned, all piston’s are firing!!!! This leads to better performance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.

A research study conducted by Drs. Anthony Lauro and Brian Mouch, published in the journal of Chiropractic research and Clinical Investigation, 1991, indicated chiropractic care might improve athletic performance by as much as 16.7% over a two week period. The report also concluded that subluxation-free athletes react faster, coordinate better, execute fine movements with improved accuracy and precision, amounting to an overall better athlete.

Some athletes who see chiropractors regularly include:

  • Lance Armstrong
  • Barry Bonds
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Joe Montana (Holder of four Superbowl rings, three Superbowl MVP’s, spokesman for chiropractic in the state of California)
  • Evander Holyfield
  • Chase Utley
  • Dan O’Brien (Decathlon gold medalist)- “If it were not for Chiropractic, I would not have won the gold medal.”

Athletes have special needs and our office understands the specific nature and requirements needed to help you perform optimally.
