Sports Performance Services

As mentioned on our Services page, Sports Performance therapies can differ depending on the athlete and severity of injury or ailment. Athletic performance in itself is affected by a combination of speed, strength, flexibility and coordination. Even if the sports are lower impact and not as physically demanding, the small impacts on the body and spine in particular can cause imperfections in the movement and alignment.

When the spine shows imperfections in movement or alignment, the resulting vertebral subluxations (set of signs or symptoms in the spinal column) can create focal areas of irritation in the nervous system, which subsequently interfere with the optimum functions of all other systems. As a result, athletic performance suffers.

Athletes getting routine adjustments may notice improved athletic performance, improved range of motion (especially in endurance athletes), better flexibility, increased blood flow, and may suffer from fewer injuries.  Because spinal adjustments will reduce the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae, the healing time from minor injuries can be shortened, improving performance.
