Learn from the Best

Why reinvent the wheel?  Learn from elite athletes who have the right support team in place to increase their performance while they maximize their future health potential. Research has shown that spinal nerves are much more susceptible to pressure than previously thought.  A University of Colorado study concluded that only 5-10mm of mercury pressure (about the weight of a dime) can reduce nerve transmission while the stretching of a nerve by as little as 6% can decrease its strength by up to 70%. Unbalanced spines lead to increased incidence of sports injury and disc degeneration while also affecting the function of your entire body. (1)

Lifestyle Care Brings Your Body towards Gold Medal Health

Chiropractic Lifestyle Care can get you in the best health possible.  These check ups will ensure that your spine is growing and developing in a healthy, balanced way without pressure on the nerves or spinal cord. Too many amateur and professional athletes are sidelined with injuries that could be avoided. Others sit it out on the bench because their injuries are not responding to common treatments. Still others are playing, but at less than peak efficiency, simply because their spine is out of balance. Make chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle today. If your body were functioning at as close to 100%, you’d be able and willing to try new things like Olympic Day every day!
