Professional sports figures are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Everyday athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes take, they experience musculoskeletal injuries.

Chiropractors are to athletes, just as Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. In addition to treating athletic injuries, the chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.

It has been said that chiropractic care most closely relates to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state.

Professional athletes see such a great value in chiropractic treatment that they regularly have chiropractic well visits to prevent injuries. If you are an athlete or weekend warrior, chiropractic care will enable you to reach peak performance, without breaking yourself.

As a 15 year old student playing a Varsity sport in high school, injuries aren’t an option. During the tennis season, I began to experience lower back pain. It progressively got worse, so I want to a traditional chiropractor who checked it out. He didn’t really diagnose the pain as anything.

Back in January, my mom met Dr. Shah at the Vitamin shop where she was fascinated by what Dr. Shah told her. When my mom came home she told me that we should try a new chiropractor but I was hesitant because I didn’t believe my back could get better. At my first visit, Dr. Shah went through my medical history and took a couple x-ray and quickly diagnosed my case as scoliosis. She explained how the NUCCA procedure is done and why I need it. Doctor performed my first alignment, and I felt so much better with no back pain or stress from all the hurting I felt after tennis practices. With every visit I was able to keep my alignment longer and longer. Another pain I had was with my jaw. Every morning I would have to crack it to be able to fully open my mouth which caused pain to shoot around my mouth. Dr. Shah taught me some massages to do at home, to help the muscles in my jaw and the cracking lessened.

I was taught to watch my diet and be aware of the food I consumed. "The painless chiropractic work that was gentle and like magic, extremely helped my body and life". Teaching me about the importance of healthy eating and being careful of my everyday tasks.
