sports care

Sports chiropractic care is for anyone who enjoys living a healthy and active lifestyle.  While a healthy and active lifestyle is important for the body, it is also important to make sure the body is balanced for injury prevention.   Chiropractic care for sports is designed to make you perform your best no matter the sport or activity you have chosen.

The doctors at Clark Chiropractic are more then experts with spinal care. Spinal injuries in sports constitute only a small percentage of all athletic injuries.  Our doctors have extensive knowledge in athletic injuries.  We are prepared to manage numerous musculoskeletal injuries both in the spine and away from it.  Most sports injuries are musculoskeletal injuries and because we are experts in neuromusculoskeletal care we help to improve and prevent injuries.  Dr. Emily Colvin studied Athletic Training prior to going to chiropractic school and has always held a passion for working with athletes of all types.  This continues into her chiropractic career.  Dr. Jeremy Clark has been involved with club soccer teams through out his years of practice and has enjoyed being on the sidelines.  Both doctors not only like to work with the injuries but want athletes to know there are numerous options for injury prevention.   All aspects of your injury will be addressed including joint/bone, muscle/tendon/fascia, and nutritional components.  We work with personal trainers in our office to help progress from injuries faster and more effectively.  We also will be adding message therapy into our office to further expand what Thrive for life can offer you.

Many professional athletic and sports organizations as well as individual high-performance athletes and their coaches recognize the value of chiropractic care for maximum musculoskeletal performance, prevention of injury, and management of injury.  Many of these athletes insist on being adjusted by their chiropractors just prior to competition to optimize their performance.
