What is sports medicine?
You’re running for home base, full speed ahead. You’re almost there and you’re sure you’re going to make it safe. A home run! Suddenly, the catcher steps directly in front of you and you don’t have time to slow down. CRASH. You collide. You’re down. You get up and you feel like you’re seeing stars.
Mile 24. The home stretch. You’re starting to feel a cramp in your left hamstring, but you can ignore it for the last 2 miles. You try to pick up the pace a little and the hamstring tightens a little more, so you back off a little. You cross the finish line and during your cool off, you realize you’re limping and that hamstring is still bothering you.
Your solo is up next. You’re nervous and excited. You go out onstage and put all of your energy into dancing, but somewhere in the middle, you roll your ankle a little. You’re able to finish the number, but backstage it hurts to put weight on it.
So now what?
This is where we come in. With years of athletic experience and extensive educational training on the human body, physical activiy, and injuries, we are here to help you get back on the field, trail, or stage.
We are trained in first aid and emergency procedures, as well as orthopedic evaluation, concussion evaluation, splinting, taping, soft tissue manipulation, and rehabilitation. Our number one goal is to make sure our athletes are safe to continue playing. Many sports teams have a sports chiropractor that comes to the games and works with the athletes on the sidelines doing taping, rehab exercises, and soft tissue manipulation.
We have a sponsorship program for local sports teams! Call us today to find out how we can help your team perform at its best!

“Lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
– Tiger Woods
