Sport + Performance Care In Saanichton
The athletes body withstands an immense amount of stress and tension from sport. With intense workouts, practice sessions, and fast-motion games, even if an athlete does not suffer from any sport injury or pain, chiropractic care can help the biomechanics of the body allowing you to play stronger, perform better, and recover faster.
We treat a wide range of athletes from professional to amateur and are well versed in a variety of sports and sport specific injuries or issues. Soccer, rugby, triathlon, equestrian, hockey, cycling, badminton, and tennis to name a few.
We understand that with sports, especially fast collision sports, injuries are bound to happen. Our experience in biomechanical movement, sports medicine and injuries allows us to provide thorough care and treatment for athletes.
Damage to body tissues (tears, pulls, microtrauma or overuse) can lead to scar tissue. Scar tissue tightens our soft tissues leading to decreased mobility, loss of strength, chronic tendonitis, and nerve entrapments (numbness, tingling, and weakness).
We use specialized modalities such as Active Release Technique (ART), Graston Technique, Shockwave and many others to treat dysfunctional muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, and nerve tissue.
These techniques remove limiting adhesions, increasing blood flow and promote regeneration, allowing you to heal faster!

Benefits of Chiropractic for Sport
The human body is an amazing machine designed to complete complex movements in a simple and defined way.
Dysfunction in these movement patterns decrease performance by forcing certain muscles and joints to work harder than they are designed to.
This leads to decreased strength, increased fatigue, and injury. Chiropractic treatments work to remove compensations to restore proper movement patterns. Chiropractic treatments have also been shown to increase the voluntary strength of your muscle contraction, increase muscle activation, and improve stability allowing you to train and compete harder.
