Sports & Chiropractic

Athletes have special needs and our office understands the specific nature and requirements needed to help you perform optimally.

Whether it's during the season or in the off-season, Chiropractic care is becoming the competitive advantage that many athletes are now seeking.

When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned, all piston's are firing!! This leads to better performance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.

A research study conducted by Drs. Anthony Lauro and Brian Mouch, published in the journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation, 1991, indicated chiropractic care might improve athletic performance by as much as 16.7% over a two week period. The report also concluded that subluxation-free athletes react faster, coordinate better, execute fine movements with improved accuracy and precision, amounting to an overall better athlete.

Top professionals in every sport are under chiropractic care to increase health and performance. The following are just a few sports stars under chiropractic care.



Arnold Schwarzenegger

“I am fortunate to have, so-to-speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own personal chiropractor. So, I visit Franco regularly, and he comes over to my house. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, everybody gets an adjustment. And we feel always great when Franco leaves. Even when I have athletic injuries he's always there for me and helps me. So it's really terrific, and I know that first hand. That's why I always will be traveling around, all  over the world, talking highly about the profession of Chiropractic. You Chiropractic doctors are really miracle workers.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Big Chiropractic Booster! Arnold Schwarzenegger was the headline speaker at the 9th Annual Symposium on Natural Fitness held March 2-4, 2001 in Columbus, Ohio, hosted by the International Chiropractors Association (ICA). A strong supporter of chiropractic and a chiropractic patient himself for many years, Arnold told the group of chiropractors: "I depend on chiropractic and so does my whole family. I have been making a movie in Mexico and all of us on the set saw a chiripractor to keep us going. All of the crew, electricians, stunt people, actors, all of us, were adjusted regularly by this great woman chiropractor who worked around the clock to take care of us all. That's what chiropractors do, take care of people like no other kind of healer."

Emmitt Smith

Mel Gibson

I got a chiropractor to come along to the (Patriot) shoot, because they can actually stick you back together within 15 minutes. He used to come every other week, from Los Angeles to South Carolina – spend a week and work on the entire crew. The guy is amazing.”  

Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge. That's why you'll find chiropractors as "team doctors" for professional, college, high school, junior high and elementary school football, basketball, baseball, ice-hockey, handball, rugby, soccer and weightlifting teams. That's also why chiropractic has been used by champions in every sport.

Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign the spinal column: a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder or torso always radiates to the center of the body - that's why a chiropractic checkup is needed when you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury. Chiropractic is  needed, in fact, even when medical procedures may also be necessary.

Why? If an injury is serious enough to need medical care, the spine is almost always damaged to a greater or lesser degree. Further, medical doctors are simply not trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations - that is the realm of the doctor of chiropractic. As superstar Joe Montana, of the San Francisco 49ers stated "I only wish I had tried chiropractic care a few years ago when I first started having back pain, and maybe this surgery would never have happened."

Chiropractic is for all people from amateurs to t he very best world champion. It will improve the health, the feeling, the life and performance of all people. With over 25 years of experience, I would love to improve the health and happiness of your family and friends.
