Need a Sports Performance Boost?

Your nervous system is your body’s control center. It looks after all of your body’s functions from breathing, digestion, heart rate and blood pressure, to immunity, brain function and your emotional well being. Every movement, every thought, every feeling and every function is directed through your nervous system.


In response to stress – physical, mental, emotional and chemical, ‘subluxations’ are formed. A vertebral subluxation is an area of altered spinal motion, tension or misalignment that interferes with the flow of information along spinal nerves and throughout your nervous system. Research has shown that even tiny amounts of added pressure (as light as the weight of a 5 cent coin) can dramatically affect the way it functions and the clarity and speed of the messages that travel up and down your nervous system.

Clearing your nervous system of interference not only helps you to be well and healthy, it also helps you to thrive, excel and perform at your best.


Research has shown that regular Chiropractic care can improve athletic ability and performance while also reducing the chance of injury. Studies have shown dramatic decreases in the response times of athletes receiving regular Chiropractic care with, one particular study showing a 30% decrease in hand reaction time.

Chiropractic care has been shown to help:

  • Enhance coordination
  • Improve speed
  • Improve flexibility, strength and muscle condition

Research shows that regular Chiropractic care may be the key to unlocking your performance by helping you to:

  • Have more energy
  • Be more flexible with better posture
  • Have more mobility and strength
  • Improve your reflex and reaction times
  • Have more mental clarity and ability to focus
