Chiropractic is the Athlete’s choice for sports care. Top coaches, athletes and doctors are now realising that painkillers are not the answer, they merely cover up the symptoms deceiving the athlete into actions which could make the injury more serious. Many high-performance athletes and their coaches have found that chiropractic plays a major role in three important areas of prime concern; maximum musculoskeletal performance, prevention of injury, and management of injury.

The principle of chiropractic care is to restore spinal health so that the body has the best opportunity to function to its peak potential. Chiropractic offers a balanced approach to the treatment and healing of sports injuries.
By using chiropractic adjustments to return spinal segments to their normal mobility, and by using advanced tissue therapy to help the supportive tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments), Chiropractors help the injured areas return to their normal function.
Chiropractic helps you to achieve and maintain your competitive edge whether you are a weekend athlete or professional.
