Information for Golfers
If you are a golfer, you know you drive for show and putt for dough. But it still feels amazing to hit the sweet spot and drive further than you ever have before. To better your golf game, improving the flexibility of your spine will help. To better your putt, then you need to better your balance. Your feet are the foundation on which you stand. If you have a foot that collapses more than the other, then your body's "foundation" is un-leveled, un-leveling your entire body. How can you be expected to putt straight if your body is not standing straight? Par Flex orthotics can help! Call to today for a free foot scan to see how your feet are affecting your golf game!

Chiropractic is helps all athletes!
Professional athletes are constantly reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Competitors train rigorously and take their diets to a new level every day. Yet despite the conscientious care and precautions that athletes follow, most experience musculoskeletal injuries at one time or another.
Chiropractors and Sports Injuries
Chiropractors are to athletes as cardiologists are to those who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game icing their injuries and taking pain medication. This is because medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treat each injury individually. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment offers a balanced, holistic approach, by using spinal adjustments and physical therapy techniques to help the patient’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their normal function.
Chiropractic care meticulously tends to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Additionally, chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously in their healthiest, most natural state.
Professional athletes recognize tremendous value in chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Whether you’re an athlete or weekend warrior, receiving chiropractic care will enable you to reach an optimum level of achievement without breaking yourself.
This includes the young athlete. Our doctors can examine the young athlete and address imbalances now, to minimize risk of injury later. We are part of the CPOYA program (Concerned Parents of Young Athletes). To learn more, check out: cpoya.com
