Serious athletes will go to many lengths with their health for improved sports performance.  However, many athletes are unaware of the vast amount of evidence that supports upper cervical chiropractic care for taking their athletic performance to the next level.  If you’ve tried many things and still feel you could reach a higher level of athletic success, perhaps to consider is whether your posture and alignment might be holding you back.  Thankfully, an upper cervical chiropractor can help you thrive and reach your full potential.

Your posture is the window to your health, fitness, and performance!

At Health Edge, our goal is to produce a healthy moving spine and properly functioning nervous system, because we recognize that this is the key foundation to optimal health performance.  Proper alignment and movement of the spine, especially in the upper cervical/neck, is absolutely an essential “nutrient” that drives and powers the brain and “charges” its batteries. Athletes who maintain an optimal spinal alignment under Upper cervical chiropractic experience improved focus while performing, better reaction times, enhanced hand-eye coordination, more flexibility, less injuries, and faster recovery times.  That’s what we like to call performing with a Healthy Edge!

Top professionals in every sport are under Chiropractic care to increase their health and performance. Athletes recognize how important it is to being at their best and staying on top of their game!  There is a vast amount of scientific research as well as anecdotal evidence to support the positive effects of chiropractic and improved sports performance.  Some of the best known athletes in history have sought chiropractic care – including Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Misty May Treanor, and Joe Montana.  In fact, the majority of NFL teams have chiropractors on staff to treat the players.
