Runner stretchingAs a chiropractor, Dr. Joe focuses on making sure that your nervous system can function at its highest level. If you’re an athlete, it can mean recovering from injury, performing at your best or preventing injuries from occurring. We’ll help you achieve your best yet, on and off the field.

An Athlete Success Story

While attending Life University, Dr. Joe provided care for athletes on the women’s rugby team. Some of the women also competed at the national level so it was important for them to perform their best year round. One athlete had been experiencing post-concussion headaches so she began care with Dr. Joe. Through regular chiropractic care he was able to help her reduce and prevent headaches, and she was able to perform at her best on the field.

Another athlete had sprained her ankle more times than she could count. Through continued care with Dr. Joe she was able to prevent ankle sprains and stay on the field. With regular chiropractic care her nervous system was able to perform optimally to prevent sprained ankles and other injuries.

Collegiate and Olympic level athletes utilize chiropractic care to stay on the field and perform their best. Regular chiropractic care can benefit athletes at all levels.

What is the first visit process like for an athlete?

When you first meet Dr. Joe, he’ll discuss your sport with you. You’ll go over your experience, career and the unique stress your body is under. We’ll perform an extremely thorough examination to locate any problem areas, then create a plan around addressing them and reaching your desired outcomes.

Will you work with my individual goals?

How quickly can I return to my sport?
