studies indicate that chiropractic care may improve athletic performance by  16.7%

The providers in our office are specialists in recognizing minor changes in joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves – all the structures utilized when participating in athletic pursuits. This kind of early detection is essential for any athlete who wants to perform at the peak of their ability, and avoid the common over use injuries that sideline many athletes.

The number of professional sports teams that include chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists are too numerous to list, but it is almost a foregone conclusion that these disciplines would be included in the team of healthcare specialists taking care of professional athletes. Below are quotes from some of the most recognizable athletes who have defined greatness in their chosen athletic field.


remedy can help

I was in the midst of training for my first marathon (2012 Portland) and developed ‘runners knee’.  John assessed the situation and recommended a bit of ultrasound, basic exercises, and some regular massage therapy on my legs.  My massage therapist did a fantastic job, and in a very short time frame, I was back on track with my training.  This weekend, I just completed the race pain free! Thanks much John. You guys did a fantastic job and I could not have succeeded without your help.
