Sports Chiropractic

Many elite athletes have used Chiropractic treatment over the years, and more than often ascribed their optimal performance as a reflection of their higher functioning nervous system. Chiropractic health care ultimately was defined by the founder of Chiropractic back in 1895 (D.D. Palmer) and even though individuals have tried to redefine it over the years, in the Gonstead system it still remains the same to date. This is why highly trained Gonstead Chiropractors generate amazing results with patient health, far and beyond where others have only dreamed of going.

It becomes obvious to nearly any sports enthusiast why the world’s greatest athletes choose to include chiropractic care as part of their lifestyle, or in conjunction with their sports athletic training. Chiropractic works.

Regular athletes and regular people cannot typically withstand the rigors and the intensity that great champions endure. It is no accident that sporting champions like Evander Holyfield, Payton Manning,  Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong, Arnold Swartzeneger choose Chiropractic care on a regular basis in order to maintain sound body and mind.

Below are a few professional athletes from all types of sports who have consulted Dr. Massey D.C over the last 13 years in his Manchester City Clinic.
