Advanced Sports Chiropractic is a Sports Medicine practice with a team of three doctors and an acupuncturist who help our patients focus on staying active and achieving optimal health by
- Educating our clients on how to safely train to succeed in sports
- Treating athletes prior to and during training to prevent injuries
- Treating injuries by helping the body heal itself while addressing and correcting the reasons why the injury occurred in the first place.
By focusing on athletes, we treat not just the spine, but the whole body from head to toe. While we do traditional spinal adjustments of the neck and back, we are also trained to treat soft tissue injuries throughout the whole body using specific techniques that promote healing.
We work with professional as well as high school athletes, even the weekend warrior! If you're experiencing chronic or acute pain in your neck, shoulders, arms, back, legs, ankles or feet, come see us—no matter what the cause! Although we focus on athletes, we're happy to help even non-athletes achieve a pain-free and healthy lifestyle.
We'll work with your entire healthcare team to get you feeling better and back in action!
