Sports Injuries Are Very Common
Whether playing professionally or just spending time with friends and family, a sports injury can occur.

Dr. Taylor is very familiar with various types of sports-related injuries and has the knowledge and experience to work with athletes to ensure their musculoskeletal systems are in proper alignment, improving overall health and performance in any sport. Even when an athlete is not suffering from injury, Dr. Taylor can support the health of the nerves, joints, muscles, and discs. Once thoroughly evaluated by our team, Dr. Taylor creates treatment plans customized to each athletes' unique needs. If we are unable to meet the needs of the athlete, Dr. Taylor has a vast referral network that he can utilize to make sure the athlete gets the care that they need.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Athletes
Dr. Taylor is able to provide chiropractic care that helps reduce the amount of time an athlete needs to heal and reach optimal performance. Our specialized treatment can also help reduce the need for excessive prescription medication like opioids that can potentially be addictive for some athletes. Working with a chiropractor reduces the possibility of future injuries by improving your range of motion and flexibility. For example, when athletes experience improved flexibility, they are less likely to become injured as a result of regular activities and practice. We can also ensure that you understand how to properly perform warm-up exercises to avoid straining or injuring your body.
